Gapless Playback with OggVorbis?

Hello!

As you might know, Gapless Playback was taken into consideration from the very beginning in the developement of OggVorbis. This means, that if you rip a CD with the appropriate Software and settings, the extracted oggs will natively be seamless when moving on to the next track of an overlapping song.

Is there a way winamp can support Gapless Playback for ogg files? Does one of these plugins do the job? I cannot find ogg mentioned in the plugin descriptions.

Thanks

Um, Ogg Vorbis playback is gapless by default.

No need for additional plugins.

I don't think that's true. In foobar2000 it's absolutely smooth'n'seamless, in Winamp not... I hear a very short, but audible gap with a clicking noise between the tracks.

Try increasing the output buffer (Preferences (CTRL-P)> Plug-Ins > Output > Configure).

Thanks! I've increased the track change buffer from 0ms to 300 ms and it works now!
