I have a folder full of audio files. Some of them are corrupted: At some point while playing them, Clementine shows an error saying that it failed to parse the stream; VLC just stops playing without an error message. cvlc does not display anything either.

How can I identify these files in bulk?

  • MP3 Diags is a comprehensive application that can identify up to 50 types of issues with MP3 files and also has tools to fix most of those issues. – Rahul May 20 '16 at 11:42

There are tons of libraries and programs to validate or check the integrity of audio files.
I normally use myself MP3val for mp3 files.
