       trackverify - verifies the data content of tracks


       trackverify [OPTIONS] <track 1> [track 2] ...


       trackverify  takes  one  or  more  audio tracks, verifies their files for correctness, and
       displays its results to standard output. If  directories  are  given,  they  are  searched
       recursively for any supported audio files and verified if found.


       -h, --help
              show a list of options and exit

       -t, --type=TYPE
              An  audio  format to restrict searching to. If given, only files of the given audio
              types will be verified. May be used multiple times. For a list of  available  audio
              formats, try: -t help

       -S, --no-summary
              do not display summary information when verification is complete

       -R, --accuraterip
              verify tracks against those of AccurateRip database

              cuesheet to use when verifying CD image against AccurateRip database

       -j, --joint=PROCESSES
              The maximum number of tracks to verify at one time. If one has multiple CPUs or CPU
              cores, allowing trackverify(1) to use  all  of  them  simultaneously  can  increase
              verification speed. However, the maximum speed is likely to be limited by I/O-bound
              rather than CPU-bound.

       -V, --verbose=VERBOSITY
              The level of output to display. Choose between 'normal', 'quiet' and 'debug'.


       All audio formats do not carry an equal measure of error  protection.  What  Python  Audio
       Tools  is  capable  to detecting depends on the audio format. For example, FLAC files have
       their frame checksums verified, in addition to the file's MD5 hash. Files  packed  in  Ogg
       containers  have  their  Ogg  page  checksums verified. However, for formats such as Wave,
       there is no standard way to verify that its data content is correct; we  can  only  ensure
       that its blocks of data are the correct size.


       Verifying lossless tracks against AccurateRip's online database is a way of ensuring one's
       rips are identical to rips performed by other people. The confidence level is  the  number
       of  other  people  who  have  the  same  rip, so a larger value indicates one's own rip is
       consistent with those of others.  However,  not  finding  one's  rip  in  the  AccurateRip
       database does not necessarily mean the rip is bad; the CD may be new, rare, or a different
       pressing than the one in the database.


       Check all FLAC files in the current directory:

              trackverify *.flac

       Check only MP3 files found in the directory audio/

              trackverify -t mp3 audio/
