Gapless streaming with Foobar
Hello all,
is there possible to get, obtain, gapless streaming (not gapless playback) from Foobar? If yes, please advise how? Thank you.

gapless streaming (not gapless playback)

What's the difference?
It's only audiophile if it's inconvenient.

Playback is made in the Foobar itself, for instance on PC. Streaming is controlled by special controller SW and sent to the renderer in the network, PS Audio DAC for instance. When I play back my Pink Floyd albums on Foobar on PC, it is gapless, but the streaming to the PS Audio DAC is with gaps. Milan

As far as I understand gapless UPnP/DLNA playback is up to the player (the "media renderer"), not the media server.
I think it is the media renderer that has to ask for and buffer some of the next track before the current one finish in order to play it gapless, but unhaplly that doesn't seems to be part of the standard, so some renderer can do it but most can't.
Try googling "upnp gapless".

Cheers!
