corruption is not really viable.. seeing how calcchecksum app is giving me the values that correspond to the filenames.. so that is what i'm currently using for files which i do not know the values of.
as for the 'container' format i mentioned.. an .ogm or .mkv video file usually has a video track.. multiple audio tracks (languages) and subtitle text files all in one file.. it is even possible to have multiple video tracks in the same file... although i have not yet seen that yet in any of my files. a compatible media player can switch subs or audio tracks at the users command.. much like watching a dvd in your livingroom. if an avi is also a container format forgive me,, i didn't know that.
bbiaf.. must try that new code
