I'm in much the same situation as yourself. 0.14 wasn't very good at being
gapless, but mythmusic in 0.15.1 works perfectly with vorbis and FLAC in my
experience. MP3's sometimes have a slight delay IME (I even get delays in
Winamp, so I assume it's something to do with MP3's being crummy at gapless
I did have some issues when the visualisations thrashed the CPU (anyone got
