AW: Delay between tracks (was: Just a short question)

This is funny :)

I ripped the big mp3 with EAC (exact audio copy).
Then i split up the mp3 with mp3 trackmaker. Mp3
Trackmaker only creates ID3V1 tags on the cutted
tracks. The IDV2 Tags i had to set manually with
Winamp v2.x...
And you're right - mp3check tells me too, that there
is junk between the header and the stream data.

Maybe one of the programs uses a predefined size for
the IDV2 area (like 2k or 4k or so?)

So is this aligning-feature difficult to implement in rockbox?

OK, I have looked at your files. The have approx 1.5Kb of zero bytes
the ID3V2 tag. How silly. The MP3 decoder probably looses the sync when
receives all that junk data.

The Archos firmware probably removes all data after the ID3V2 tag until
finds an MP3 sync word.

I guess we will have to add that feature too, but I just can't
why on earth your ripper/encoder/ID3 editor adds junk to the file
the ID3 tag and the stream data! What software are you using?
