+PulseAudio Multiroom? Or Pulse Audio Multiroom. The choice is yours!

Dear LazyPlus. I have a large collection of music files I'm trying to sort out for a friend. The files were collected from various laptops and iPods in their possession within iTunes and on external HDs and placed in a single tree on a NAS (Synology).

There are lots of duplicates in there that I want to whittle down (not duplicates in the sense of same song, encoded differently, but the bit-for-bit identical - for the music portion of the data), but the problem is that over time, various managers have added/altered the file metadata (sometimes just to add or edit a tag, sometimes the tags have been stripped completely) and thus file size and checksum comparison is not sufficient.

Does anyone know of any handy scripts that might be out there (ideally CLI that can run on Synology) that can help me in this task? Doesn't have to be super efficient, but bonus points if it is. I suspect it'll involve something to loop through all files, strip out the tag and take the size and checksum of the music component and compile a little database, then delete the duplicates after complete. I'm sure I could write something, but, well, I suspect someone has done this before... Files are mostly, mp3, aac and wma. Any ideas?

Got the One Plus 3 but think it might have to go back. It's just too big for me. The current trend on large form factors does not agree with me. I thing my current S5 5" screen is just a bit too big for me (it wouldn't be so bad if the casing was a bit neater) so my gamble that going bigger might feel different enough to work better doesn't seem to be paying off. I guess I'll just stick with what I have and plod on until the next nexus is out...

On the plus side, it's gone up in price by £20 so maybe someone will buy it from me and I can make some profit :D
