[REQ] Gapless playback [#10611]

Post by mcow »

This is apparently a capability in the Android JellyBean core player.

I'd like to see it used in MMA. Is there a Mantis issue for this?

Yes, it's planned for MMA 1.0 or very soon after.

This will be a great addition/enhancement to MMA. Things like speeding up scrolling the tracks etc will be nice but this effects the Music itself.

Thanks

Optional?? okay. I am just not sure why you would want any gap placed between tracks that don't exist already. Where would that be good?

Plenty of people request that in MMW with the ability to add gaps between tracks. Thus it should be an optional feature as some need gaps. I personally prefer gapless crossfaded music play.

<G> i don't generally mind crossfade but when playing albums already designed to flow together it might sound off. But as always ... different strokes for different folks

I don't play Albums, I play random tracks and prefer the continuous audio of crossfade and gapless.

Any updates to the lack of gapless playback? This missing feature kills MMA for me, as I have quite a few albums with gapless tracks.

Thanks. I guess it's at least good to know it's "in the queue."

I would like to add my support for the inclusion of crossfade in MediaMonkey for Android.

I'd like to add my vote for supporting gapless playback on Android 4.1+ with the MM app.

I did a little research since not everyone is able to make gapless playback work with music apps on 4.1+. For some they had to revert to the stock Google OS. For others they needed a special file format. Some could not get it to work at all.

In my case, I have a Galaxy S3 (Verizon) running 4.1.2. I tested with WMA (basic), OGG, and FLAC files. The stock app, Google Play Music, and Amazon MP3 were unable to play any of the 3 formats gapless. I was not able try WinAmp, since gapless playback is only supported in their Pro bundle. However, I was able to get a trial of PowerAmp, and found that I heard gapless playback with OGG and FLAC formats, but not WMA. This makes me think that they are correctly supporting the Android 4.1 API, and not merely stripping out silence at the end and beginning of tracks.

From the 4.1 API: "You can now perform gapless playback between two separate MediaPlayer objects. At any time before your first MediaPlayer finishes, call setNextMediaPlayer() and Android attempts to start the second player the moment that the first one stops." This approach would be expected to work with OGG and FLAC, and not WMA (basic).

So hopefully, MM Android can support gapless playback with OGG and FLAC as well.
