I ran across this post looking for a fix for this problem. I'm trying to loop some soothing sounds as background noise (running water, crickets, etc.), but the gap shows up when the track repeats, even when the crossfade in WMP11 is turned on and is set to 0 seconds as has been suggested in other forums.
Unfortunately, gapless playback doesn't seem to work in WMP when you only have a single track set to repeat.
After some tinkering, I found a working solution to this problem. It should work for most file types, but it's working for me with .wav and .mp3 files. Here are the steps:
- Add your sound.wav file to the WMP playlist
- Add the same sound.wav file to your WMP playlist again so that you have two instances of the same track in the playlist
- Make sure your WMP crossfade settings are set to ON and 0.0 Seconds (howto)
- Select the Repeat toggle button so the playlist repeats and click Play
There is no gap as WMP moves between playlist entries, and of course, they're both the same track, so you effectively have gapless repeating playback of a single track.
