Flac fingerprints

Hello everyone,

Maybe this is a "stupid" question, but I've read the FAQ about flac fingerprints, i'm lost there. Is there a program I can use to make flac fingerprints?

metaflac --show-md5sum *.flac > filename.ffp

Checking an .ffp file is a bit more difficult, because of differences in OS text formatting, and the fact that every frontend out there throws in their own superfluous text. Otherwise, if it's a *nix formatted .ffp file generated as above, you'd only need to use the cmp (compare) command, something like:

cmp filename.ffp <(metaflac --show-md5sum *.flac)

I'll leave it to someone more qualified to come up with a solution for "every" possible situation (my own script just greps the checksums).

In addition to the thread jabulon linked to earlier, and spidergawds neat example, you could try etree-scripts.

Get it from this ppa: https://launchpad.net/~ketilwaa/+archive/etree-scripts

When creating flac files, it will generate an ffp file, but I really only use it for the md5check command, which will check and verify any md5 or ffp checksums in a folder (it also checks all flac files for integrity).

Thanks for the link. I've seen the link to the Sourceforge page in the past, but that link was always broken so this is the first time I've been able to try out these scripts. The md5check command works fine for md5 files created with TLH and xACT, but I can't get it to work with files created with FastSum. It appears to be because FastSum uses upper case letters in the checksums while everything else uses lower case (I manually edited one checksum and that file checked ok).

You can bet that if someone takes the time to fix this bug in md5check the next frontend to come along would throw yet another spanner in the works. These tools are nice to have, but they're kinda like spellcheck (a poor substitute for learning what you're doing).

Cheers!
