    I'm having the same issue. I'm noticing that I only get it when i try and record more than 10 secs with 60fps Canon 7d Anything 10 secs or less & I'm fine with 60fps Anything over 10 secs in 60fps i get the error "fixme: please use fio_malloc (in mlv play task)" when I try to play back

    It's a bad idea to use an older build to work around this issue, since the warning is due to a fix for a file IO bug that could cause data corruption. The warning is there because there needs to be a full proper fix done. Previous builds don't show the warning, but that's because the bug was unknown. With the newer builds, at least there's no possibility of data corruption from this bug.
