FS#2744 - Queued songs do not play gaplessly

Queuing up an album to be played after the current one
has finished will play with gaps between the songs.

To reproduce this do the following. Whilst playing a
track, queue up a folder (an album) that has songs that
should play gaplessly. The queued album will then play,
but have gaps between the songs.

This effect does not appear if the album is just
“played” after a song.

No responses on repeated questions/probes

This should be fixed in latest builds.

Um, I have the latest release and it doesn’t play
gaplessly at all.

There is a small gap between songs on an album that is
supposed to play gaplessly and does on my computer. the
files on my computer are WMAs which unfortunately aren’t
supported on rockbox for the iriver, so i converted them
to MP3s. Yes they are LAME MP3s and thus have the gapless
header, Yet there is a small but noticeable pause between
tracks. This is much better than the original iriver
firmware of course but is this as good as it will get or
am I doing something wrong?

The album in question is The Wall by Pink Floyd (Tracks
tested were 3, 4 and 5.)

Ehum, this bug report is about *queued* files not playing
gaplessly when they do it if you play them normally *in

If you want to complain about gapless playback, don’t hijack
a completely unrelated bug report.

Please test with latest daily build and report if it’s still not working.

Does this bug still exist?
If nobody’s having this bug anymore and does report it here,
I’ll close this task in about a week from now on!
