hey is there a tool out there that can generate and checksum the audio file excluding id3 tag?
See the export function of MP3tag:
|%_md5%||MD5-Hash of the file (slow!)|
|%_md5audio%||MD5-Hash of the audio part of the file (slow and only supported for ID3- and/or APE-only tagged files)|
Hi Ohrenkino.. I'm aware of %_md5audio% however I don't think mp3tag can use that piece of info to verify mp3 files. or do you know any tools I could use %_md5audio% generated md5 to check against the audio file?
MP3tag can do that.
The md5 checksum is part of an export script, you would have to re-import the data to a file or whereever you need it.
You can run the checksum generation again and compare the generated value with the stored value.
