in reply to get md5 sum of a remote file via net::ftp / net::sftp

If the remote machine has the 'md5' command you could ssh into the machine and run the md5 command on the specified files. If not you could write your own md5-ing perl script (using examples above), and run that on the remote machine (if you can write files there).

I'd use Expect to script the ssh-ing and running 'md5'.

[marto]: I'm looking forwads to it. The video sources are dying, and they don't have the hardware to play them back (old tape formats, not just VHS + Laserdisc etc)
[marto]: I'll be interested to see what difference in terms of file size/quality the new codecs make. I enjoy working on things like this, so that's a bonus
[Corion]: Ah, cool! So it's not an inhouse youtube but for a wider consumption
[marto]: last time it was IE6 clients, now they're on 11, so more scope there also, in terms of UI and playback
[marto]: in house as in Company network, not internet connected (power stations and the corporate HQs)
[Discipulus]: new Monsignor party! free beverages and pizza for all you monks! and a big thanks for the patience you deserved me during these years
