I know from [Sources], that FLAC computes CRC and MD5.
What I am afraid that
flac --test only does CRC test - as stated in
man flac :
same as -d except no decoded file is written .
How to check flac file correctness, using MD5 of raw PCM placed in STREAMINFO in given .flac file ?
flac --test makes job, are there any reliable (like in flac documentation) references that shows it?
FLAC uses CRC checksums for identifying corrupted frames when used in a streaming protocol, and also has a complete MD5 hash of the raw PCM audio stored in its STREAMINFO metadata header.
By default when processing files, flac computes the MD5 sum while encoding and decoding.
To see md5sums in STEAMINFO we can use:
$ metaflac --show-md5sum *.flac
