@_discord_920732593710841917:t2bot.ioadvplyr#6112 Did you used to have different audio files in that folder? 21:43:40
@_discord_920732593710841917:t2bot.ioadvplyr#6112 ch0 was probably not the name of a file so unless you typed that in it came from the metadata of some audio file 21:43:41

@_discord_665340223382618174:t2bot.iobenonymity#6089 Huh, that's odd. The Audible chapter lookup is great and likely your best automated option if the scanner keeps pulling phantom chapters from the audio files. Great book by the way! 04:09:19

@_discord_493850938705182720:t2bot.ioLostOnTheLine There isn't. It was originally an apple thing.
Apple would use the same container for different functions & just use a modified version of the tags. M4A originally used the AAC container with a slight adjustment to make it close to MP4 container. That's what M4B was based on, & it only could use AAC audio. As the format evolved it, & apple's other proprietary formats, used the full MP4 container with different extensions. M4P was their DRM format used for both audio as well as mp4 video, they used M4V as their iPhone video format but it was completely useless, it is 100% an MP4 with the extension changed, but if you tried to put an mp4 video on an iPhone you had to "convert" it with iTunes... Or just change the extension yourself.
Fast forward to today & M4B is fully an MP4 container holding an audio file, chapter markers & a play-state tag. MP4s support MP3 audio, so you can use MP3s in an M4B, just most programs will default to AAC for backwards compatibility.

MP3 on the other hand has had a lot of varying formats, but as the container has remained the same & only updated to newer versions they all use the same MP3 extension. There are chaptered MP3 files, they just aren't supported by many things. Though I believe Audiobookshelf does support them as theirs a settings option for something about library MP3s that have embedded chapters, if you make or convert with any program that let's you add chapters to MP3 you should be able to make them work by turning that setting on as I think there's only 1 version of chaptered MP3 format. Those are essentially M3Bs but as MP3 is a smaller container format they have more limits than MP4, like I think the books have to be pretty short to not need to be split the way long books like Inheritance is 2 M4Bs, if it was M3Bs it'd probably be like 8 or maybe more.

Thanks for listening to this Ted Talk, lol, hope that tells you what you wanted to know

@_discord_193771063115644929:t2bot.ioAgent531_C#2960 You mean.... A book? 16:33:52
@_discord_759169401437683712:t2bot.iohobesman I suspect the question was more about line by line synchronization with the audio. 16:35:48
@_discord_577589681307254811:t2bot.ioazothforgotten I’ve seen people do it with lyrics somehow but it doesn’t seem practical 16:39:17
