[PD] midifile

Hi, trying to compile this on OS X. Don't really know what I'm doing  
but got it to compile and now it gives me errors that look like this:

Opened /Users/palli/downloads/Chestnuts_Roasting.mid
Header chunk type: MThd
Header chunk length: 100663296
error: midifile_read_header_chunk: bad file format: bad header chunk  

Regardless of what I open, it always looks identical except for the  
name of the file. Any ideas?
