Gapless playback with a Linux DLNA server, was: "software to create cue files"

Virtually all the music I buy now comes in the form of downloaded flac files. These have no cue sheets with them.

Some of the music needs to be played gaplessly, and I'm under the impression that flac files + cue sheets is a solution to this. If this is so, can anyone recommend a linux program that would enable me to generate cue sheets from the flac files on my hard disk? I have seen software that creates cue files from music on a CD, but I can't find anything that does it from a folder of flac files on the hard disk.

What does that have to do with it? You made a claim, so you provide evidence for it. How is anyone else relevant? If this is your attempt to dodge a valid challenge to your unsubstantiated and, frankly, very unlikely claim, then itís a terrible effort. Abide by the rules to which you agreed during registration in your posts, or donít make them.

I just want to see what's passed the test.
What's wrong with that? It's all supposed to be public, and publicly verifiable isn't it?

I read your post as being more about dodging the obligation that you provide evidence for your specific case. Of course thereís nothing wrong with what youíre saying here, and I hope you find the material interesting. I apologise if I seemed hostile. However, the main point raised by greynol and myself still stands, as well as the recently mentioned possibility that you were comparing apples to oranges.

That's OK. And I accept your main point, in principle. In practice it's very hard to know how to go about devising a good test that would be acceptable to people. I doubt if I could persuade my wife to sit and listen to the same piece of music over and over again, and my friends would not be inclined to do so either, so any test I could do would involve just me. If I can learn how to do streaming from the linux command line I could easily write an abx test program. Maybe I'll have a go, but I only have copyrighted music so I couldn't publish the files.
