Important

Don't run the script immediately on your only copy of files! This script is changing files in place, so be sure to test it out on smaller bunch first - you would want to copy those into a separate folder and try it out.

Usage

Dependencies

node v^14 ffmetadata module relies on http://www.ffmpeg.org/ so be sure to install it first

How to run

  1. npm i -g audiobook-formatting
  2. run audiobook-formatting -i <path>, where path is relative path from current folder to the audiobook root folder
  3. if after step above the audiobook is still imported into iBooks as a bucnch of different audiobooks - try to use -a <custom_album_name> option. This will rename the album in each media file and after that iBooks will treat them as 1 audiobook.
