View Full Version : checksum alternatives in mac

2011-12-04, 11:56 PM
im trying out a hackintosh and i came across xact 2.13 & checksum-x. they are ok with flacs n *.ts files, the problem is video dvds. both give none but "missing". the dvds play nice wit xbmc, vlc, snow dvd player n so on. think cant be the nt drive mounted with tuxera since is the same with the hfs+ snow leopard drive. those are the files i threw to those apps for now.

exuse my little experience. this is the 1st place i can think of.

so id like to ask advise to any mac user on their choice for verifyin utilities, or if you think it may be a hackintosh issue that i should look a workaround for (system definitions 3.1 on this).

any opinion more than welcome.

Could it be the md5 checksum is in the wrong directory and so it isn't verifying for that reason?

think it happens all time. ill edit 1 to see. if that would be the case, are there apps that read the "*../video_ts/*.vob" line. "../" is for runnin the md5 from an EXTRAS_TS folder, that works in win apps.

yes, that was the case. just tryed that out. wonder why it dont run from the EXTRAS_TS like in windows utils

Are you making sure to select the right option when verifying the md5 (it isn't the top option).

u mean "verifyin checksum file" instead of audio files? i think is because of the text in the md5 writin "*../VIDEO_TS/VTS01.VOB"

instead of "* VTS01.VOB"

it wont run the checksum file from within an EXTRAS_TS folder. is that possible in mac?

I have run checksum files from within the EXTRAS_TS directory many times. Unfortunately, I have no examples on my drive right now to show to you.

ok, thnx. ill copy a changed duplicate inside the video folder for now till i find how to write down md5s like that. in windows works all times though. 1 last thing, you remember any source on the net for that? thnx again.

2011-12-05, 12:59 AM
yeah. found out it was with a"/" instead of a "\". the good part is that both characters work on windows (think). ty for givin me the idea!

I put the MD5 in the VIDEO_TS folder to check when that happens and more often than not it will check fine... remember to take the MD5 out when done.

I use xACT.

i run em from an EXTRAS_TS folder all the time using xACT, no problems...the md5 has to read "../VIDEO_TS/" after the asterisk & before the file name on each line -- ya can't use "..\VIDEO_TS\" like a lot of PC users do

xACT is what I like to use also. It's linked in our FAQ too.
