Subject: AW: AW: AW: AW: Delay between tracks (was: Just a short question)
From: Danijel Ilisin (
Date: 2002-09-15

Okay, i just tried it.
I split up a 100meg mp3 file in multiple parts and generated a .m3u for
Then I let it play - sometimes there is no noticeable delay between the
tracks but most of the time you hear a short break between them. It's a
short "knack" when the screen refreshes its info.
The big mp3 file is a CBR (192kbit) mp3 file.

So this can't be due the VBR header, can it? It would be great if one
fix that - so I can split all my big mp3's to small ones and give them
tracknames and stuff - and everything plays as if it was one giant mix.

As I wrote in an earlier mail in this thread:

There is no intentional delay between songs on the Rockbox. We remove
the ID3 tags to allow the decoder to stay in sync. However, the VBR
header is still sent to the decoder by mistake. This is a bug we
intend to fix.
