I'm sorry if this has previously been asked, but I was unable to find anything pertaining to it.

I encoded a WAV into FLAC and calculated the MD5 for each and converted it back. Both WAV files had the same checksum, but when I did --show-md5sum it gave me a compltely different value, that value didnt match the FLAC or the WAV.

If the result of the --show-md5sum is supposed to be different what is that hash calculated from?

MD5 checksum calculation is unambiguous, but the layout of the data is NOT. So it matters how the data is layed out. I am referring to the various endianess schemes for example.
