scarfy Posted September 26, 2013 Share Posted September 26, 2013 There seems to be a lot of questions about this, but I've not seen an answer yet. Does anyone know how to get gapless playback to work with MP4s when using Poweramp? I ripped a few CDs using Nero AAC, which played back fine in Poweramp. However, the playback wasn't gapless. There is a small break of a few milliseconds between songs, which, when listening to an album where one track seamlessly transitions to another, is quite disruptive to listen to (at first I thought that Poweramp was hiccuping on the tracks). Are there any tags I can add to the files? The reason I'm interested is that right now I have most of my music in OGG. However, I've notice that the battery takes quite a beating from playing these, compared to MP4 (because the CPU usage is much higher). It's not dreadful of course, but could be better. An example: 2 hours of playing back MP4 audio shows a total CPU usage of 13m in Android.1.5 hours of playing back OGG audio shows a total CPU usage of 20m (some quick maths suggests this would be almost double that of MP4). The OGGs are encoded at q6 (~192kps), whereas the MP4 are ripped at 0.5 (~160kps). I'm not sure that the extra 32kps accounts for double the CPU usage, but maybe I'm wrong Tags? Ripping suggestions..? Thanks, Steve Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
