I set up Plex for Audiobooks and I pretty impressed

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/PleX

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • Sonar - Write Clean Python Code. Always.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • Plex-Audiobook-Guide

    A walkthrough for optimal Audiobook experience using Plex

  • Readarr

    Book Manager and Automation (Sonarr for Ebooks)

    I found there is Readarr, I haven't looked into the m4b stuff though. I'll give it a closer look. I didn't even think about any of this until I saw this thread.

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • Audnexus.bundle

    An audnexus client, providing rich author and audiobook data to Plex via it's legacy plugin agent system.

    Install the Audnexus agent (https://github.com/djdembeck/Audnexus.bundle) and use that for metadata for the audiobook library

  • openaudible

    Audiobook Manager for Audible Users

    If you already have audiobooks in an Audible library, you can download them directly with OpenAudible

  • audiobookshelf

    Self-hosted audiobook and podcast server

    Plex works fine for audiobooks, but still I prefer Audiobookshelf in docker on my unraid server. It looks good, frequent updates (if something is buggy or missing feature just tell the guy in GitHub, he works really hard on it). I switched from Booksonic despite me paying for the mobile app (I mean Booksonic is fine, I just find Audiobookshelf more responsive, and it has more features that I use, like collections)

  • Audiobooks.bundle

    Plex metadata scraper for Audiobooks

  • audible-activator

    Retrieves your activation data (activation_bytes) from Audible servers. Using https://github.com/inAudible-NG/tables project instead is recommended.

    It worth noting the OpenAudible folks “stole” the IP from the open source project audible-activator and have used it in their paid software.

  • Sonar

    Write Clean Python Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean code every time. With over 225 unique rules to find Python bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.
