Certainly. And as far as I can tell Sound Juicer, which calls the ogg
encoder or the flac encoder - the two formats I use - can as the files
are built correctly.
Note that earlier I said my hardware CD player - a Marantz or Sony or
the one in my car - plays these CD correctly. The other Linux players
I had tried - mplayer and alsaplayer - did not even play the the CDs
correctly. Back in those days I didn't rip much so I don't know what
other rippers might have done. However, I think there are two issues
in making this work:
1) The encoded file - be it mp3, flac or whatever, must be encoded
with no extra silence.
2) The player must get the second file ready to play before the first
one has finished so that if there is not supposed ot be a gap there
will not be a gap.
I am guessing that it's #2 that causes most players problems.
Aqualung has taken this all a step further by making the playback
insensitive to file type, encoding frequency, storage location, etc.
