Does Web App Support Gapless Audio Playback?

plex-web

#1

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.


#2

Unfortunately playback isn't gapless on web as yet. Sorry!


#3

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.


#5

+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.


#6

+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.


#7

+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.


#8

+1 for gapless


#9

+1 for gapless audio


#10

+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.


#12

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.


#13

+1 for gapless playback! :slight_smile:


#14

+1 have a lot of nonstop mixes, so this would be great


#15

Please add gapless playback. Thanks


#16

Add me to the folks with gapless playback on their wish list.


#17

add another vote for gapless playback!


#18

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