Corrupted file detection

So maybe I am just unlucky, but I have had a lot of my drives fail this year and last, and was wondering if having a feature to detect corrupted files would be useful or feasible. Currently, I have a script to do this for me that uses mkvtoolnix to loop over my directory.

The command:

ffmpeg.exe -v error -i /path/to/mkv -f null

will try to open an mkv container and spit out if there were errors reading it. But then there are other container types that this won’t work for.

I will continue using my simple script, but thought I might post here in case anyone has ever tried to play a video file only to find it’s broken.
