Bug Description

So up till now I've understood that gstreamer doesn't support gapless playback yet, so all the apps that use gstreamer just have to wait.

But then I found this:
on the gstreamer mailinglist. It seems to indicate that gapless support will never(?) be added within gstreamer itself and is something that must be done by the individual project:

If (2), that's something that rhythmbox will have to support. It involves
prerolling a pipeline and hooking it up to some kind of stream switcher. It's a
pipeline topology issue, not a GStreamer issue. For example Flumotion's jukebox
component does gapless playback with 0.8.

So is that the only solution? Or is my source out-dated...

This ticket was migrated from the old trac: re #108

+1 on this feature, it is one of the things that keeps me from switching completely to Exaile...

Yes, it is indeed implemented in 0.3. turns out playbin2 makes this stuff really easy.

I just tried out the latest (2008-12-03) tarball from the exaile site. It does not play MP3 gapless at least. But then it states version 0.2.99something...

It's not enabled by default because playbin2 still has some issues.
