Check files against CRC in filenames?

  • Anonymous - 2012-05-13

    Would it be possible for checksums to be compared against a string in the filename to see if the file is good or bad?

    For example

    Filename 1234-ASD .mkv

    xxxxxxxx being CRC32. There's already something like this here

    I find FileVerifier better (the best of all "file verifiers" programs in fact), but I miss that feature. I know it's something specific for fansubs and anime, but I use it for all my video files, that way I can move them here and there and have always its CRC at hand. Anyone else keep CRCs in filenames?

    There should be a configuration that maps string lengths to algorithms.  Most, if not all, programs that verify such checksums or hashes only support one or two algorithms.  FV++ at the moment supports 6 algorithms with 32-bit checksums and 4 algorithms with 128-bit hash outputs.  Either this, or you should have to specify the algorithm with the operation.

    Of course, the default configuration would be set to algorithms that are most likely to be used (CRC32 and MD5).
