Question about final gap in MP3
Everybody know that every MP3 encoder adds a little gap at the end of a track when encoding; we also know that LAME writes a tag with the right information of the end of the track, even if only foobar2K can read it... BUT, out of curiosity, how much is long this little gap? Has it a standard lenght or it depends on the file or on the codec (LAME, FHG, Xing...)?

What you're talking about is the encoder delay that all mp3 codecs use.  The following two links are what I could find concerning your question.  Hope it helps somewhat.

Just for clarification the encoder adds the delay at the beginning of each track.  It also adds padding on the end of each file.
