What steps will reproduce the problem? 1. Play two flac files with clementine under FreeBSD(8)
2. listen carefully when one track ends and the other starts :) What is the expected output? What do you see instead? These files were played without gaps with Clementine 0.6 What version of the product are you using? On what operating system? Clementine 0.7.1 under FreeBSD 8. With Windows 7, no gaps can be heard. Please provide any additional information below. These files worked with 0.6 and they are still working with 0.7.1 under Windows 7. Perhaps something was broke with the "gapless-patch" for 0.7.1 under FreeBSD?

I'm using "gstreamer-plugins-flac-0.10.27,3" and the GStreamer-Backend under KDE4.

Can you try the latest dev build, it was fixed at least on Linux.

From andrew.gaydenko on April 18, 2011 09:13:49

Under up-to-date Arch Linux x86_64 and with current Clementine trunk there is a stumbling between (mastered-to-be-gapless) tracks (at least for FLAC files).

From nilsreusse on April 18, 2011 11:35:40

I'm using 64-bit versions both on FreeBSD and Windows 7 too.

Summary: Gapless playback (flac) broken in 7.1

I get this issue when installing the gstreamer-plugins-bad package. Removing it fixes gapless playback again (for me).

Removing the gstreamer-plugins-bad package on Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit seems to fix the issue for me as well. Both the gapless playback and the visualizations work on track change.

I think this is rather a gstreamer issue.
I am using Clementine 0.7.1 on OpenSUSE 11.4 and the situation is as follows:
OGG, FLAC, APE, WAVPACK: perfect gapless playback.
M4A (AAC), MP3: gap between tracks.

I'm using gstreamer, libgstreamer 0.10.35, plugins-base 0.10.34, plugins-good 0.10.22, plugins-bad 0.10.22, plugins-ugly 0.10.18, ffmpeg 0.10.11. All versions up-to-date with the exception of plugins-good.

If, however, I install the latest version of plugins-good (0.10.30), it breaks gapless in FLAC files, while OGG, APE, WAVPACK remain gapless, M4A and MP3 remain non-gapless.

I was also able to fix flac gapless under Ubuntu 11.04 by removing gstreamer-plugins-bad (0.10.21)... and I don't use clementine (soon though, banshee makes me more angry by the day). So definitely looking like a gstreamer issue. other plugins installed with gapless still working: base 0.10.32, good 0.10.28, ugly 0.17.17 Thanks, johannes for the tip and sorry if this is just noise

From andrew.gaydenko on July 31, 2011 16:17:17

I have tried to remove ugly plugins, but at my case it doesn't help (git, Arch Linux x86_64). How did you tested? As for me, I just have divided music fragment into few parts in sound editor. Say, aqualung plays it smoothly, while clementine stumbles.

From potharn.imre on August 01, 2011 12:05:24

Andrew, try downgrade good plugins to 0.10.27 or earlier (if you can) and see if it solves the problem.

From andrew.gaydenko on August 01, 2011 12:47:01

The same with 0.10.27.

Issue 2001 has been merged into this issue.

From jan.salvet on August 10, 2011 05:48:57

It's still broken with latest stable gstreamer 0.10.35 on Arch.

From philipp.psurek on October 03, 2011 05:04:17

Clementine 0.7.3-198-gbbd0cef / Ubuntu 11.04 32 bit
confirm no gapless playback with FLAC, this files are gapless playing on Audacious.

This is problem is 5 months old at least. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=701952

From dannydude3 on November 08, 2011 23:05:01

Downgrading to gst-plugins-good-0.10.23 fixed the problem for me
Gentoo x64
Clementine 0.7.1

From davidsansome on November 12, 2011 17:51:45

Sounds like a gstreamer bug unless proven otherwise. Anyway, descoping for 1.0

I'm getting this on OS X 10.7 (using the latest nightly Clementine builds - currently 0.7.3) as well. Also, it seems to be happening on all audio formats, not just FLAC. Gapless playback is working fine in other music players.

From spiro.multimax on December 22, 2011 18:37:39

On Ubuntu, upgrading all packages to the versions available as of 12/12/2011 on the gstreamer-developers PPA fixes this issue with FLAC. There are still gaps between MP3 files, however. So this bug should be closeable, and #369 is still valid.
