I registered just to ask about this program since there doesn't seem to be any mention of it pre-2010.

FLAC Tester reports errors when testing 24-bit files, even though flac.exe itself tests them without issue. This is probably old news. However, I really prefer the FLAC Tester program and would prefer to continue using that, without having to test 24-bit files separately.

I read that AudioTester (from vuplayer.com) is the updated version of FLAC Tester, and it reads 24-bit files without issue, and it also tests the MP3 format which is a huge plus. I downloaded the program's zip file and tested it using a couple of online virus scanners. Jotti's Malware Scan and Virus Total both give one (false?) positive. I was going to risk using it anyway, but then I noticed on a separate computer that BitDefender refuses to display the website at all, and gives malware warnings. Also, the forums there were apparently shut down due to spam bots or somesuch.

Has AudioTester and/or the website been compromised? Also, is the program still relevant at all, or has it been replaced by something better?

I tried the program (right now) and it seems to be working. The internet web archive shows the page really was created in 2006, so it's probably a false positive. Of course, there are other possibilities, too. The program found some sync losses in my mp3's so I guess it's ok. However I have to wonder what it would check in flac files, without the originals there is no way for a program to tell if it was encoded correctly. It can probably find data corruption, though.
