I recently got some FLAC files with embeded cue sheet. Though, the info of the sheet file doesn't seem to show up in Rhythmbox; Banshee; Amarok or Audatious. Which media players support this kind of file?

this is an old question and the before-mentioned players might already support this. please comment if so. – lujbilami Jan 5 '15 at 14:11

xmms2 suite of software supports this partially. You must extract the cuesheet

metaflac --export-cuesheet-to=myfile.cue myfile.flac

and then you can do

nyxmms2 addpls myfile.cue

flactag also has support for creating the cuesheets and embedded tags in batch mode)

You may want to try DeaDBeef. It's open source and has been ported to Android. It's the closest thing to foobar2000, even in terms of GUI style.

It is perhaps not the answer you would to ear.

There is a Windows player that supports that, and it works well under Wine. It is foobar2000
