Subject: Re: Continuous playback
From: Eugenio Perea (eugenio_at_perea.com)
Date: 2003-05-29


In fact, EAC has an option to detect and leave out the gaps when
ripping/encoding. This is what I've done in the past, in the hope I
would get continous playback. Apparently, I was wrong :)

By the way: Andreas, thanks for the links!

Cheers,

Eugenio
