I've been reading through posts on the LAME --nogap option. Some say the MP3 format doesn't allow gapless files. Some people say they've gotten it to work.

I'm gathering that it >can< work, but won't totally eliminate the gap.

I tried configuring EAC with the command: "--alt-preset standard --nogap %s %d" but didn't have any success. EncSpot has a field that indicates a --nogap encoded MP3, but none of the MP3s I encoded indicated that --nogap had been applied.

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to get EAC to execute --nogap on a series of tracks?

Thanks,

Shel

--nogap switch itself needs player-side support to do its job (decoder must not be reinitialized between files), and not many software players can possibly do that (supposedly some hardware players play decode --nogap files gaplessly).


Witt pointed me to your post on --nogap here: This topic is very helpful.

A few messages below that you posted a couple of sample gapless MP3s to test. Looking at them with EncSpot, it seems the fields for nogap show the same 'no' results as all of my LAME encoded MP3s, with or without having set --nogap on the commend line. So I guess EncSpot is not reporting whatever you set for nogap when you created those files.

I see your command line was basic, instead of the -Y switch which I can't find any documenation for: --alt-preset standard -Y

Are you saying that by rote, LAME versions v3.90.3 and above encode MP3s as gaplessly without setting any switches on the command line? Or am I still missing something?
