Check mp3 files for corruption and fix them, with MP3val

MP3val is a small and free utility that will let you validate and fix mp3 audio files. It can be useful for finding corrupted files (e.g. incompletely downloaded, truncated, containing garbage).

MP3val is also able to fix most of these problems.

The most common MPEG audio file type is MPEG 1 Layer III (mp3), but MP3val supports also other MPEG versions and layers. The tool is also aware of the most common types of tags (ID3v1, ID3v2, APEv2).

Please note: mp3val won’t fix the wrong length report of vbr mp3 files – if you need such a tool, get vbrfix.
