i'm looking for a good audio player that runs under linux.  specifically it needs to support gapless playback.  i've tried xmms but it doesn't appear to do gapless...

thanks...
Dan

does xmms support replaygain?  i've done a bit of poking around but i can't seem to find anything that says 'xmms supports replaygain'.  i'm using vorbisgain to replaygain my files.

The Vorbis-Plugin currently doesn't show options for replaygained files, so I assume it's not supported.

The Vorbis plugin in 1.2.7 doesn't support ReplayGain, but the CVS version does.

What I do is just compile libvorbis.so from XMMS's CVS and overwrite 1.2.7's copy that lives in /usr/lib/xmms/Input (at least in Debian).

I don't use pure CVS XMMS because it's still got some bug that causes IPC to lock the player up.  That is to say, if I've got an xmms already running, and I run "xmms somefile", the player will lock up.
