Does anyone know if there are any plans to include audio checksum metadata in the MB database? So similar to how AccurateRip and CTDB implement it. Kind of like using
metaflac --show-md5sum, so you can see with reasonable confidence if your rip was successful, without having to actually store any copyrighted data in the database.
I realise MB already has audio fingerprinting, intentionally made a bit fuzzy to err towards matching a different pressing of the same recording. This, in contrast, is to ensure a digital rip or download is sample-accurate. Both have their uses.
I did a bit of searching, and found a failed proposal abandoned in 2010, and a ticket opened in 2015, last updated in 2016. This seems like a really good idea though, so I was hoping there was some way it might gain a bit more traction. Is anyone else interested in such a feature?
