TOPIC: Gapless in Volumio on the SHD?

Gapless in Volumio on the SHD? 7 months 1 week ago #39469

Have you guys been able to get gapless playback in Volumio o the SHD? I've read that Volumio2 is supposed to offer gapless playback, but I am getting gaps between tracks on the SHD Studio. I am playing music from my Synology through Volumio on the SHD Studio, that is, Browse > Media Servers > select my Synology. With classical music, gapless playback is really essential, so this is rather annoying. I _am_ getting gapless playback with Spotify through the SpotifyConnect app for Volumio on the SHD, but, as I said, no such luck with the flacs off my Synology through Volumio on the SHD Studio.

Just an update: once I've mounted my Synology on Volumio, I get gapless playback. I didn't quite understand the differences between the Media Servers option (also plays music off my Synology) and mounting the NAS on Volumio (to access the music through My Library)--the second option (once I've enabled NFC sharing on the Synology) is better as I get gapless playback this way.

I'm guessing you have enabled a DLNA server on your NAS, which is what is showing up in the Media Servers screen.. You could try using say Linn Kazoo on your Mac/PC to control playback.

Actually the issue (not gapless) may be due to the server end not the controller. MinimServer may work better than the default on your NAS.
