There's also OpenAudible. It's similar to Libation, but more user friendly.

I really like OpenAudible for downloading, converting, and splitting, but I don’t like it for organization. For organizational purposes
I’ve been self-hosting my audiobooks via Audiobookshelf, ABS, on my always on M3 iMac. I like doing this because I also have audiobooks from other sources like Kickstarter, Humble Bundle, and Podiobooks from back when Podiobooks was a thing.

For me ABS is Calibre for audiobooks. It’s not for everyone and setting up Docker can be difficult if you’ve never done it before. ABS’ Discord server walked me through how to set up Docker. It was easy once I had a better understanding of how Docker works.

Question relating to organizing audiobooks.

I chapterize my mp3 files and tag them using Mp3tag. In File Explorer, the book folders are subfolders of author folders. If I search for a genre tag, File Explorer will return a list of individual files, which is unwieldy; I'd like to be able to see a list of the folders, which means I want to be able to tag the folders. (Zipping the folder doesn't work.)

Apparently this was possible in Windows 10, but I'm using Windows 11. I've seen a free program called Intag, but I'm a little leery of trying it because of some of the caveats, and my own limited computer smarts.

If anyone has used Intag and/or has a suggestion for another way to accomplish this, please help!

Note: I don't want to use Calibre because it would entail a lot of extra work as Calibre doesn't read any of my existing tags, covers, etc., and I like my own system better anyway.

I'm not much a collector of audiobooks, but I found Intag very interesting, thanks. There's some documentation here: https://github.com/Jamminroot/intag. I wish i had read this remark on Softpedia before installing it:

Despite the app’s quick setup experience, users need to bear in mind that the executable needs to be placed in a dedicated program folder on first boot, since its context menu trigger will look for it in its initial location.

On first use I added test tags to some windows folder, then I searched for tags:test, and it worked fine on Windows 10. There's also some insteresting information here on tagging files on Windows: https://www.makeuseof.com/windows-11-search-tags/

Have you tried foobar? I use the latest 32 bit preview version just for music, but some folks like to use it for audiobooks:

https://www.reddit.com/r/foobar2000/...to_audiobooks/

(i have this component installed, and if it weren't for its existence, I would still be using winamp nowadays, as it's been recently revived)

Thanks. I did initially read (or at least tried to read!) the Intag documentation at Jamminroot, which was why I went to Softpedia, where it made more sense!I may try it on a secondary computer.

As mentioned, I tag files with Mp3tag, which File Explorer picks up and reads just fine.

I glanced quickly at Foobar, but a player app isn't what I'm after--I'm happy using a simple mp3 player.

I appreciate your response.
