Subject: AW: Delay between tracks (was: Just a short question)
From: Danjel Ilisin (d.ilisin_at_web.de)
Date: 2002-09-16


Well this is the only feature that hinders me from switching permanently
to rockbox :-O

This seems to be the part that causes the delay:

                else {
                    /* skip past id3v2 tag (to an even byte) */
                    lseek(mpeg_file,
                          id3tags[tag_read_idx]->id3.id3v2len & ~1,
                          SEEK_SET);

                }

So i just have to finetune the getid3v2len() function, right?
Can't be that difficult :) Scanning for the 1st mp3 frame right
after the V2 tag and adjusting "offset" according to scan result.

Uninstalling Winamp? Hmm, will think about it. If you show me a
windows player that is as versatile as Winamp.

You think so? :-)

OK, so Winamp is to blame.

So don't add V2 tags with Winamp.

Winamp probably did that. Punish it by uninstalling it. :-)

Yes and no. It is not that hard, but it will add some complexity and CPU
usage. Just to handle silly ID3V2 tag editors...
