A tool for validating and fixing MPEG audio files.

MP3val is a tool for validating and optionally fixing MPEG audio files. It was primarily designed for MPEG 1 Layer III (MP3) files, but also supports MPEG-1, 2, and 2.5 Layers I, II, and III. It can be useful for finding corrupted files, such as those that have been downloaded. It supports ID3v1 tags (which must be at the very end of the file), ID3v2 tags (at the very beginning of the file), and APEv2 tags.
