Why does VLC Player play a .ape file all as one song?

Why does VLC Player play a .ape file all as one song?

I am using VLC Player to play a 350MB .ape file with 12 songs in it. Is VLC a proper program to play it? Because it keeps on playing it only as one continuous song instead of 12 separate songs.

"Like Foobar2000, VLC can play the songs separately by loading the cue sheet.

Or use the Medieval CUE Splitter, a freeware tool that split a single big audio track, mostly an album or a compilation, into the relative individual audio tracks, using informations contained in the associated ""CUE"" file. Sometimes you can find a big compressed audio file (for example MP3, APE, FLAC, OGG, WAV, WMA, etc...) equipped with a small ""CUE"" text file that contain informations about tracks title, artist and length.

Foobar2000 and Medieval CUE Splitter are freeware.
