Recursively check and correct mp3 files in Linux

A while ago I wrote on how to convert ogg files to mp3 files. Now I needed a solution to check and correct my mp3 files. Using the tool mp3val and the find command you can do this recursively:

find . -name "*.mp3" -exec nice mp3val -f -t -l/home/{username}/mp3val.log "{}" \;

The -f option fixes the mp3 files. -t keeps the timestamp and -l creates a logfile.
