Unfortunately, that's not a solution for Wwhattam, whose DMR is not capable of (push) gapless playback. It's clear that there are too few requests for it for such a feature to be worth implementing.
So, for those who use cue sheets, IMHO there are really only three options:
1. Find a server app which supports cue sheets (I don't think that such a beast exists).
2. Buy a player which supports full gapless playback.
3. If possible, implement a server-side solution, such as trackfs, suggested here by andresch.

RE: CUE Sheets
As I understand it, MinimServer with trackfs would send a series of individual tracks to the control point and renderer, just like using XLD.

I think you're right, I misunderstood what trackfs did. And now, thinking of this issue, it seems clear that MinimServer support of cue sheets would not solve Wwhattam's problem, because it would amount to the same thing -- the server sending separate files to the DMR, resulting in gaps between tracks. It looks like buying another player is his only solution.

RE: CUE Sheets
Hey there,

i'm wondering if it's possible to use embedded cue sheets in files, if i'm indexing the embedded cue tag which foobar2000 creates (TXXX cuesheet)? At least foo_upnp provides the embedded cue sheet information to bubbleupnp player. Can minimserver as well?

RE: CUE Sheets
Where/how does the cue sheet show up in BubbleUPnP player if you are using foo_upnp as the server?

It shows the selected album not as one long single file, but all containing "single tracks" in playlist view and when selecting an album in mediathek. Just like the album would contain of single tracks regularly.

RE: CUE Sheets
MinimServer does not support this, as discussed in earlier posts in this thread. I don't have any plans to add this to MinimServer.

no problem. of course i first studied all posts and searched a while before asking... just thought that embedded cue sheets are quite a bit different than single cue files and as custom tags can be indexed, i thought it may just be that little bit to have bubbleupnp read that information. :-)

now everybody knows about embedded cue sheets too. :-)

RE: CUE Sheets
I have not investigated this myself but I would expect that it is foo_upnp that is recognising the cue sheet and splitting the album into single tracks, not BubbleUPnP.

You could verify this by trying a different control point to see if the division into single tracks shows up there as well.

RE: CUE Sheets
The foobar2000 core is managing the CUE sheets and exposing it as single tracks. It is almost transparent to foo_upnp.
Generally speaking, CUE sheets are not super interoperable with UPnP and should be avoided for that prupose. It is easy to split a CUE sheet
into single tracks (with foobar2000 for example).
