Default Gapless Playback for FLAC on Sansa Clip Zip

Howdy,

I'd like to know if the Sansa Clip Zip supports gapless FLAC playback.
Gapless FLAC playback is important to me because I listen to many live concert recordings.

Thank You,

Milan

With Rockbox, yes. With the sandisk firmware, sometimes.

The sandisk firmware guesses when to start the next file fairly well but sometimes misses by a bit so playback isn't always gapless. It's pretty good but not 100%. Rockbox properly reads the information from files like FLAC that include gapless information and has true gapless playback.
