I'm not sure if I understood you correctly, but if you are talking
about how will the player handle two songs that are gapless -
well it has to ensure that nothing comes between these two
songs, by using pre-buffering & continuous output (if you are
using WinAMP there are plug-ins that do this). So the Vorbis
encoder & decoder have done their part of the job by ensuring
that the edges will match, and it is up to the player to ensure that
this is done without any interruption...
