Wow! This is exciting. I've been interested in this for months. How does this compare to Calibre? And does it support sending books to Kindle over email? I wonder if this app is overkill for someone who reads maybe 1-3 books a year and doesn't follow any authors in particular. I just like the idea of sticking to the *arr ecosystem.

 

Thanks for this! Excited to give it a try regardless.

Also very excited to see this - I currently have no use for this for eBooks - only for audiobooks, of which I have a large collection in a Plex library. Now Plex is pretty rubbish for audiobooks , but in the absence of anything specific to audiobooks and after various tweaks, it is workable. Would be great to have a 'connections' option for Plex in the pipeline if possible - similar to that on the other *arrs? Hopefully fairly simple to add?

Thanks

Does the application still have the issue requiring fresh databases often?  Also I had not heard about the requiring separate instances for eBook vs audiobook yet, thats unfortunate.

 

Thanks for your template work on this @binhex!

 

@awediohead I have a large collection of audiobooks too, but haven't really taken the plunge of shoving it into plex, got any guides or advice on how to tackle that?  Ive seen a couple of guides around before last time I look into in, curious what you tried.

unknown at this time, perhaps its now fixed we shall see in the next update i guess, keep in mind this is still definitely BETA software here, but it does work fundamentally, at least for me, it can download E-Books and it can rename correctly, so im quite pleased with the results so far.

i assume you are referencing the text in CA for the app right?, as in:-

Note that only one type of a given book is supported. If you want both an audiobook and ebook of a given book you will need multiple instances.

yeah that was taken straight from the readarr readme.md so i guess that is the case right now, i would imagine they will fix this at some point so you only need a single instance again.

The only positive thing I can say about my Plex audiobook library is that it sorta works . . .  kinda 8) I've stuck with it because via the iOS Prologue app the user experience for my immediate family is pretty solid and we're mostly re-playing  books we've had for years. i.e. we'd notice pretty quickly if the player app was dropping chapters or losing place, which did happen with Plex <---> other apps I tried.

 

When I first set it up, I remember I cherry picked some bits from https://github.com/seanap/Plex-Audiobook-Guide

but it's changed a lot since and I didn't bother with a lot of the automation that guide describes because I use OSX on hackintosh. The plugin mentioned in the current version is also unfamiliar to me as I used Audiobooks.bundle - which the newer plugin refers to as being possible to 'upgrade' from. But if it ain't broke . . . .

Lastly on iOS the Prologue app seems to be pretty good at dealing with the fact that Plex "thinks" it's serving music files and ignoring anything not audiobook specific. A lot of Android audiobook player apps (going by reviews) only seem to work well if accessing a local audiobook specific folder on the phone, rather than Plex. I don't have an Android phone to test with, but would like to be able to recommend a solid, reliable app to older family members with Android phones who aren't very tech-savvy, if anyone can recommend one?

Hello!! 

Love to see this!! I currently have all my audiobooks in Plex, but love the idea of having them in another arr system.

I started adding my audiobooks to them, I have 340 GB of audiobooks, and I seem to be having difficulty with it seeing all of them.

For example, I set it to see my whole folder of audiobooks, and just import it:

However, as an example Robert Jordan.  It's not importing all of the Wheel of time books.  It is skipping half of them pretty much.  So I went to manually import them, and it lets me click to manually import them, but nothing happens.  

It says import successful, but nothing has changed.
