It's been a while since I did any YouTube watching on my Oppo, so cannot confirm whether I'm having the issue or not.

Have you tried the standard solutions to any problem? i.e. switch the "Quick Start" mode to whichever setting you don't have, factory reset, etc.?
The Youtube app on my Oppo 103 got a bit of an overhaul a couple of months ago. I can now select videos hitting the down arrow while a video is playing. Kind of a neat feature.

Its not all that common for CDA discs to have track tags, maybe 50% do. But there's a solution if you have a lot of them that don't. Use a good ripping tool like dBpoweramp to rip them and use a online database to pull cover art and tags and imbed those in lossless FLAC files. Put all your CDs on one drive and you never need to get out a disc again. The online ripping databases are pretty complete, its rare to find a CD not listed but if you do you can create your own tags.

RDG, thanks for the suggestion. Many of my classical cds and some of my rock cds have gapless tracks. When I've ripped such cds to flac in the past (used dBpoweramp), they do no play back gapless when I've streamed them via DLNA from my pc. That seemingly small annoyance has a bigger impact on my listening enjoyment than I would have thought. I've read the Oppo 103 user manual, which indicates that it can play back FLACS gapless from an extenal drive), but it appears, and correct me if I'm wrong, that you have to select gapless from an options menu on the Oppo for the particular tracks every time you want to play those tracks? If this is correct, you'd have to remember which albums had gapless tracks before playing them. This is too complicated when I just want to listen to music, and defeats the convenience of having all my music in digital form in one location, even if it provides metadata and album art that I wouldn't have if I just played the cd. Don't know why gapless is so difficult when other devices, such as an ipod, can play them back with no problem, just like the cds they were ripped from.

The best solution in that situation is just to rip them as a single file.

But then the individual track info that he's looking for is missing... There really isn't a "best" solution in this case.

Or really, even a good one. My Logitech Busybox can do it...why not my Oppos?

I know it's at least partly rhetorical, but we can't really answer "why" questions of this sort here... I'm honestly not sure if it's a hardware limitation they've been working around with the Options -> Gapless feature or if it's completely solvable in firmware. "Why" questions on this are probably best sent to Oppo for comment.

oppo response to my youtube issues.

Unfortunately this is something that has been reported to use and we have informed Google of these observations. We are using a simple HTML client to access the YouTube service, so any changes that will occur will happen on the server end, rather than the client end. So hopefully a fix will show up in a couple of days.

Actually, it was completely rhetorical...I wasn't expecting an answer from anyone here. Just making a minor point. I make my living as a kernel/device driver developer (in the Unix world) and do understand that things aren't always as easy as they seem from the outside. Just wish it would work.
