I'm curious about the silence gap thing. I'm new to Vorbis, and have been
encoding some of my CD's with it. They sound great, BTW. Anyway, I encoded
an Eddie Izzard CD last night, a single live performance as 25 tracks on the
CD. I loaded them up in Winamp with the latest Vorbis plug-in, played them,
and there were definite gaps between tracks. Granted, much smaller than MP3
files, I think, but they were there and quite noticeable.

Is this an issue with the Winamp player or plug-in? Or maybe something about
the way I encoded them? (using CDex with the Ogg encoder that came with it,
"version 1.04, engine 1.04")
