A FLAC Fingerprint is generated only for the audio data portion of the file. (Therefore, changing the filename or the tags or FlacMetadata does not change the fingerprint calculation.) In contrast, an .md5 is generated against the whole file, including header portions.

So the process should be: When converting .wav to .flac you create an md5, then create .ffp from the flac files.

Thanks for that!
