LibriVox Downloader

LibriVox Downloader


LibriVox Downloader conveniently downloads free audio books from the LibriVox collection, which can then be played in a suitable audio player. MortPlayer Audio Book is recommended.

This app is my Christmas gift for my wife.

The books are by default downloaded to the LibriVox folder on your SD card / external storage. You should set MortPlayer Audio Book to use that folder as its main folder, or use the Options in LibriVox Downloader to select a different folder for it to download to.

Features:
- browse by genre or author
- search by title or author
- choose between ogg and mp3
- download cover art

If you're having trouble getting LibriVox Downloader working, email [email protected] before leaving feedback.

NOTE 1: I recommend downloading audio books only via WiFi. These are very large downloads, about 350 mb or so each.

NOTE 2: I've had one user report that ogg downloads work better than mp3 ones. I am investigating.

Recent changes:
1.07: Disable SSL host check to work with Librivox site's cert.
1.06: Update to work with new Librivox API. Remove ogg support due to this (sorry).
1.05: Finer-grained download count to help with debugging
1.03: Retry downloads (configurable in the options) on failure or on zero-length. This should make the reliability higher.
1.02: Fix an unclosed cursor crash.
1.01: Trap database opening error.
1.00: Official release.
0.13: Try to fix directory delete crash

Doesn't work. This will find what's available on the Librivox server, but cannot connect to download any content.

Okay but... Nice for browsing and downloading, but would be better if it let you continue downloading in the background and better yet if you could queue up multiple downloads. Maybe a "wifi only" option would be nice too.

Why Why do I need this downloader when librivox downloads also, I downloaded this app and when downloading you can't leave the download screen or it stops downloading
