This is a bit out of scope of Rhythmbox :) In most cases, I'd recommend
re-scanning the replaygain values using appropriate tools after doing
any format conversion.

As far as ReplayGain playback is concerned, the plugin does not work
correctly. It lowers the volume but none of the settings have any

Well, most of the settings on the ReplayGain plugin really will have
barely any audible effect. In particular, the difference between track
and album gain is often <1dB, not an audible difference, and if the
track is having volume reduced the limiter will probably not be
noticeable either.

That said, I just gave it a try... And it looks like there's a bug when
using the non-crossfade backend that some of the ReplayGain settings
aren't applied correctly. (I tested this with the "pre-amp" setting,
which does make audible changes.)

If you switch the backend to crossfade then everything should work.
Note that the settings appear to only be applied on track change with
the crossfade backend, not realtime.

Should probably file a bug for this issue...
