Description:

A simple tool for creating ipod-compatible, full-featured m4b-audiobooks. Based on SoX, faac and mp4v2.

Features:

* make chapter markers
* add cover picture from various filetypes
* change and add metadata
* on the fly conversion
* batch mode
* support for many different input file types
* sort input files by filename or id3-tag (tracknumber)
* split audiobooks into parts automatically
* move chapters between audiobooks

For the CLI mode please use version 0.1.2 since it was removed in 0.1.90.

As this program is primary for educational purposes, any suggestions and critics regarding my code are very welcome.

Dependencies:
python, sox, faac, mp4v2 (inclusive utils, i.e mp4chaps and mp4tags)pyqt and Qt
