I recently had a hard disk failure and could not rescue all my music files. Since I didn't have enough storage available to do a full backup of the disk, I tried to
cp as many tracks as possible, but now I am left with some files that end prematurely.
ffmpeg -i broken.mp3 2>&1 | grep Duration Duration: 00:04:18.14, start: 0.025057, bitrate: 92 kb/s mp3_check -a broken.mp3 2>&1| grep SONG SONG_LENGTH 01:43.05
ffmpeg seems to rely on some metadata (04:18 is the duration that is also displayed in my media player), while
mp3_check seems to actually read the whole file. I could use this to write a script that covers mp3, but:
Is there an easier solution rather than comparing
mp3_check output in order to find broken files?
How would I do this with Ogg files, where no
mp3_check is available?
