[ubuntu-mono] [Bug 935762] Re: Gapless playback doesn't work

I installed gstreamer plugins 0.10.36 from the gstreamer-developers PPA
under Oneiric, and it seems to have fixed the problem for FLAC files.
However, the aforementioned problem with M4A files still exists, and
that's due to either gstreamer or banshee ignoring the track length

Gapless playback doesn't work
Status in Banshee Music Player:
Status in “banshee” package in Ubuntu:
In Ubuntu 11.10, Banshee doesn't support gapless playback very well.
It has an option in the preferences that claims to enable the feature,
but it simply doesn't.
With AAC and MP3, this is due to a format limitation. In those
formats, the frame length is fixed, and so the last frame has some
silence at the end, causing a slight gap. Several encoders, like LAME
and Nero AAC, have implemented a tag that stores the correct track
length in milliseconds. However, Banshee ignores this metadata,
introducing the small gap at the end of each track.
With FLAC, this shouldn't be an issue. However, there's an even larger
and more noticeable gap between FLAC songs.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Cue two or more gapless songs, such as those on side B of Abbey Road by The Beatles.
2. Play both songs in the correct order.
3. Observe the gap.
This bug was already marked as fixed in this Launchpad around 2006,
but it's clearly not.
