[Desktop][Playlists] Add gapless playback for local files

This is an extremely basic feature included even in the default Windows media player. So much of what I listen to has transitions from one song to the next, but Spotify's local files at the end of every single song has a little pop, 0.2 seconds of silence, and then the next song starts.

It is just an abomination that something as basic as gapless playback on local files is not available on Spotify in 2020 and and the outrageous part of it is that I thought just about 10 minutes ago that maybe it was just me and 7 other Endless - Frank Ocean fans that would care for something like this, but it’s a 8yo ignored thread with 100+ people asking this and spotify simply doesn’t  care because they cannot profit on it. Please have some respect with your paying customers and listen what we have to say once. The worst part is that every year the thread is cancelled because it doesn’t get traction enough. The only reason I’m not listening my local files on Apple Music is because of last.fm. Spotify disappointing again
