Re: ffp = shntool md5 = st5 ???

Um, yeah, kinda.

They all give you the same hash, as you can see. That's the whole idea. We want to have one fingerprint/hash that will be identical whether a show is in flac/shn/wav/aiff/whatever format.

So, yes, fingerprints and st5s are the same. The thing is, no one has come up with a standard extension for shntool md5s, so people are coming up with their own. shntool and xACT make them .txt files (I think), but TLH makes them st5 files and Stephen's makes them something else. But, they are all the same.
