I run ubunutu. All linux audio players seem to suck compared to foobar, so I am trying to make do. Foobar has two things I need out of a media player, gapless playback of flac and options for crossfeed (headphone spatialisation).

For complicated reasons, I want to use mplayer to play music, because it has nice audio filters that can be used as crossfeed. The only problem is, mplayer does not play music back gaplessly. When I cd into a directory and

CODE
mplayer *


it plays all the files, but it stops between them to detect what the next file is, it's bitrate, etc. It seems like there should be some way to get it to play all the files at once, perhaps using something else to concatenate the files and pipe them to mplayer?

Or, if someone has suggestions for achieving both gapless playback and headphone crossfeed (b2sb, Dolby headphone, 4front, etc) that doesn't involve mplayer, that would also solve my macro-problem, which is more fully outline here

Gapless playback with mplayer can be had by using a FIFO:
