Audio Book Naming
The recommended folder structure for audio books is Author\Book Name\Chapter
\AudioBooks \Author \Book Name 1- Chapter 1.mp3 2- Chapter 2.mp3
This is not a requirement and other structures will also work, but this is the most common method. Some other examples of supported structures are Book Name\Chapter:
\AudioBooks \Book Name 1- Chapter 1.mp3 2- Chapter 2.mp3
Or even a flat library of chapter files:
\AudioBooks 1- Book Name - Chapter 1.mp3 2- Book Name - Chapter 2.mp3
Track/Chapter numbers are retrieved using embedded ID3 tag information if present.
Multi-Disc Audio Books
You can store you media in the following format for convenience but Emby will not pick up the "disk #". In order to use this folder structure you will need to use an external tag editor such as MP3Tag. Using MP3Tag you would highlight all files in each folder and assign a single tag for the disc # and save. Emby will then read the tag and show as well as sort your audio chapters by disc.
\AudioBooks \Author \Book Name \Disc 1 1- Chapter 1.mp3 2- Chapter 2.mp3 \Disc 2 1- Chapter 1.mp3 2- Chapter 2.mp3
Audio Book Images
Images are supported in both artist and album folders, as well as images embedded within audio files. Below is a table of the supported image file names:
Supported image extensions are jpg, jpeg, png and tbn.
Several image types support multiple file names. They are listed in the order that they're checked for.
|Image Type||Supported file names|
For backdrops, X represents a number, and you can have any amount of numbered backdrops. For example:
\AudioBook \Author backdrop.ext backdrop1.ext backdrop2.ext backdrop3.ext
