Does Web App Support Gapless Audio Playback?

5M177Y5M177Y Posts: 10Members ✭✭

I'm looking for a way to listen to music (FLAC files), in a windowless / minimised manor (on a Mac). I'm thinking the web app might be the obvious choice, but am concerned that playback might not be gapless.

    Are there any plans to implement the feature?

    +1 for gapless web-playback.
    Same idea as 5M177Y, cant find a better player than the web interface on mac! Also tried Plex Media Player - in window mode, but it hijacks the audio from all other apps.

    +1 for this. I always assumed I must have configured my library in a less than optimal way, or was otherwise missing something basic. Pretty shocked to see this as a straight-up unsupported feature.

    Gapless playback has been a 'goes-without-saying' standard in every audio player for a long, long time. iTunes (!!) the bastion of cutting-edge boundary-pushing new features (ha!) implemented this TEN YEARS ago (source). And of course players like Foobar, Spotify & etc all support this extremely basic feature and have for a very long time.

    Perhaps the devs could give this a read.

    +1 for gapless playback on web as well.

    This is really my only issue with Plex. I listen to a lot of live recordings, and the gap between songs really takes away from the feel of them.

    +1 from me, also. I have a lot of electronic albums with tracks mixed together, and it would be great to not have the gap of silence in between such tracks.

    +1000 for gapless audio.
    I'm listening lately to a lot of older concept albums and it really hurts…

    Gapless Playback is next-to-impossible to achieve in a web browser.

    However, Gapless Playback is on our radar for support in Plex Media Player. However I have no ETA on when.

    Will be looking forward to this. I was actually about to push the button on purchasing a plex pass when it occurred to me that I should make sure gapless playback is supported first.

    Best of luck. Hope to be getting this soon.

    I would probably buy a Plex Pass if this were added.

    You can also try Plexamp for better audio support/gapless - https://medium.com/plexlabs/introducing-plexamp-9493a658847a
