MP3val(1) A program for MPEG audio stream validation


mp3val [-l <log_file>] [-f] [-si] [-p] [-v] <files to validate>


MP3val is a small, high-speed tool for MPEG audio files validation and (optionally) fixing problems. It was primarily designed for verification of MPEG 1 Layer III (MP3) files, but supports also other MPEG versions and layers. It can be useful for finding corrupted files (e.g. incompletely downloaded).


-l <log_file>
Log file name. If this argument is missing, all the information will be written to stdout.

Try to fix errors.

Suppress INFO messages.

Pipe mode (receive input file names from stdin). Intended for interaction with frontends. <files to validate> is ignored in this case.

Print version and exit
