Clementine handles them fine, except for one little problem:
It's leaving out the first three tracks for some baffling reason.
@Jo Wait, if its is one solid file why do you need a playlist? o.0
@Canageek It's complicated. I have a bunch of albums that are mixed together with no audible gaps between tracks, and having separate files for each track results in a slight pause as the player - any player - opens the next track.
So I'm trying a single file with a CUE-sheet to mark each track because I'd still like to jump back to the beginning of a track if I stop playback for a while.
@Jo Huh. I thought there where settings in a lot of players for gapless playback.
@Canageek Believe me, I've had nothing but disappointment trying to find a player that does gapless playback from anything that isn't just directly from a CD.
@Jo I went to test this, but realized I don't have my audio library on this laptop yet v.v
Does this still have a gap on all of your devices?
VLC and SMPlayer both have an noticeable gap when switching to the next track.
Clementine switches to the next track flawlessly, and when checking my own album (I still have the separate FLACs per track at the mo) it handles those fine.
I'm pretty sure it's the players at fault here tbh.
@craigmaloney @Jo @Canageek i remember looking into this ten whole years ago, damn. i think the excuse at the time was someone saying something about "we have to cache the next song and theres some filesystem cross-platform compatibility thing about paths or file handles or something" which seemed like bullshit to me. they probably have a better excuse now that sounds more clever
I do know the likes of Anjunabeats gets around this on their digital releases by including separate files per track, and then one long file with the whole mix alongside it.
I'm wondering if being crossplatform makes doing it *complicated*? Most of the Windows players seem to do it, and most of the *nix ones have trouble with it, so I'm wondering if the fact *nix does audio terribly is part of it?
