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 have the full library Loved it at first and since librivox app is such a mess this app is a must have... Only problem is the full library isn't here.

Waste of time What a waste. Cannot find books that I know are on Librivox. Might as well use the LV app. Doesn't download in background, so cannot do anything else. Uninstalling.

Basically Useless Works but it doesn't tell you who the readers are so there is no way to know which version to download. It also cannot download in the background. Probably better off just going to the website.

Great app, but it really needs the ability to continue a download in the background.
