Re: Experts! Here's a puzzle for you... or maybe just a question from me.

I spoke about this with feralicious in a pm but I might as well add my 2 cents here, just so that people know this isn't a problem or flaw with FLAC. pmonk has already posted more about the subject than I know, and I expect ssamadhi to have something interesting to say about it when he's finished tinkering with the shn file.

But basically flac produced a different fingerprint because it realigned the data during conversion. However, when decompressing to wav, shorten didn't bother to fix it, so the fingerprint didn't change. That's the reason for the difference.

Now I'll leave it to ssamadhi to tell us how this shn file got that way in the first place.
