Release Loyal Books - Fomerly Books Should be Free
#1
This is an audio addon for the website http://www.loyalbooks.com (formerly known as http://www.booksshouldbefree.com)

This website is a source of over 7000 free public domain audio books, including many of the great classics.

The addon allows you to search the site or browse by genre (browsing can be customized via the addon settings).

This was one on the first addons I wrote (probably 3 years ago now), and I have finally decided to polish it up a bit and submit it to the org for inclusion in the official Kodi repo, it can be found under music addons (tbh I think that option should really be called audio addons)

Alternatively it is also available from my repo:

https://github.com/spoyser/spoyser-repo/...-1.0.6.zip

The addon also has a resume facility so if you stop playback you can pick up where you left off at a later date (it automatically rewinds 5 seconds - this is by design) .

The books are arranged in chapters, selecting a chapter will play just that single chapter, but you can also queue them up via the context menu, there is also a Play all available on the context menu too.

I downloaded your addon but haven't installed it yet. I listen to audiobooks a lot and I look forward to trying this.

I was already familiar with the site it links to having downloaded some of the classics over the years.

Thank you for making this, and I'll get back to you on how it works after I get around to installing it! :-)

Hello @spoyser

Just wondering if you are still maintaining this addon for v17 and v18 or if we should mark it broken in the official repository as it fails in both?

I receive the following error. Full log here... izuduniken.kodi (paste)
