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

sorry, zZzZzZz, i wasn't clear about what i meant: I didn't mean that --nogap files would generally play gaplessly.. but i am very confused about one thing (and yes, i have searched through the forums)--you say that --nogap will only work if the player doesn't reinitilaize the decoder between files, but that otherwise it works.

however, isn't that also necessay for regular --present standard mp3s to play back gaplessly?? in other words, wouldn't reinitializing the decoder introduce a gap no matter what kind of mp3 you're dealing with? and wouldn't that therefore mean that players which playback --preset standard files gaplessly don't reinitialize the decoder, and therefore would also play back --nogap files gaplessly?

forgive me if i sound like i'm trying to argue with you--i'm just explaining how i understand it at the moment, so some can tell me if i've got it wrong.. i'm not 'claiming' anything...
