As luck would have it, straight out of our R&B labs, we are releasing something tomorrow you will be interested in (no doubt), it will be billed as the most efficient (both memory and resources), gapless (and replaygian-able), multi zone audio player (designed to have as many as 10 simultaneous players running, including zones bridged together). Part 1 is done which the uPlayer which is controlled by the command line.
@mthanks, however I tried it and it gives a small but noticeable gap between multiple audio files, don't you have this?

I was under the impression that it did support gapless (and I was pretty sure I remembered hearing it demonstrated at some point), but if I was mistaken I offer humble apologies for sending you on a goose-chase. - M.
I don't think you want to be using MP3 files as IIRC they cannot in themselves be gapless, and the players have to use some sort of workaround to make them gapless, like preloading the next song and starting it before the previous one has finished so that the audio is perfectly matched, but 2 files are actually playing at the same time at the point of crossover.I'm pretty sure mp4/aac supports gapless playback as do most (all?) lossless formats, and they can be edited with Audacity.
@spoonthanks, I'd like to try that program out, but does it support gapless playback?
other gapless MP3 players simply ensure that the tracks are of the proper length and do not require any kind of dual-file playback.
I love that you have R&B labs.
Quoteother gapless MP3 players simply ensure that the tracks are of the proper length and do not require any kind of dual-file playback.Technically the 2nd track would have to be opened and read whilst there is data from the first track in the buffers. Doing the 2nd track when the first track had finished completely would limit the player to audio formats which are fast to decode. Also keeping the 1st stream open allows skipping back in the last second of playback (if a 1 second buffer was used).>but does it support gapless playback?Indeed, since R12 (of Music Converter) we have had sample perfect mp3 decoding.QuoteI love that you have R&B labs.You would not be far wrong with that statement

@donnieI tried xmms2 but it does not seem to playback gapless either..So no luck yet.. or you guys do manage to playback gapless? (without any sound disruption when it goes from file 1 to file 2)
