How do you add Audiobooks

That didn't used to be the case so there appears to be a regression.

Can you explain what the problem is? I just tested this on a fresh install and added the source only, no scanning into the library, and I was able to create Resume points.

I cannot see anything wrong in your log.

I have tested this on 4 different v18 builds of Kodi with an empty library. I am able to Resume the audiobook from Videos>Files.

I have no idea what the problem could be. Sorry.

Hi Karellen I appreciate the time you've put into this, in the above quote you say from Videoes>Files, I have been trying to play mine from Music>Files can you just clarify which is right please.
Many thanks

@seniorstone

I have been playing around with Audiobooks for my own personal library now.

Can you give me the link to the audiobook that you downloaded which does not create a resume point? I think I have figured out why you are having problems, but I need to see the file first to confirm.

Thanks to this thread I was finally abel to set up correctly my audiobooks.

@Karellen but after I saw your screenshots I'm hooked and now I try to get the covers working. I'm using mka-files and added the cover.jpg with mkvtoolnix but they don't show up. Also the interpret is created but no details are added (before I used mp3 and there the details and picture was added).
So would you mind explaining what container you are using and how you prepered it to get the covers showing up in kodi?
If you need more info about my setup I'm willing to add those informations.

Thanks in advance

Hello @aksnöld

Firstly, just in case you did not see this wiki page... Audiobooks (wiki)

I am using mka files also created as described on the above wiki page. I did not embed any cover artwork in the file. I just added it to the folder containing the mka file as shown in the image below. When you scan the audiobook into the library, Kodi will find the artwork and use it. In my screenshot the cover is named folder.jpg. You can also use cover.jpg, but Kodi prefers folder.jpg and when you export, it is exported as folder.jpg which means you will end up with two files if you use cover.jpg.

But your mka file needs to be tagged with basic information otherwise Kodi will not be able to import it into the library. MusicBrainz Picard does not work with mka files so you need to use MP3Tag or similar.

Thanks for the very fast hint - this is working very well.

While this is working for some files it does not for some others (which were correctly scraapped with mp3 and are listed in musicbrainz.org - so the question what are the required tags (actuall I used titel and artist) with MP3Tag.
