Support for audiobooks

Add the same functionality for audiobooks. I think you can use the audible API like in this node project https://www.npmjs.com/package/audible-api Would be a great feature since there's nothing like this for audiobooks.

It'd be great if this could work with the FL Wedges on MaM. Also having a "Prefered Filetype" which works like the quality settings in Sonarr where I could say that I prefered mp4 files, and it would grab the mp3 if thats the only one available, but update to the mp4 if that becomes available at a later date.

It would also be great if it could embed all the info from the audible api (author, title, plot, cover art, etc) into the id3 tags.

I meant m4b not mp4

Love this idea!

This would be a nice addition to my Sonarr and Radarr lineup. I don't do much with music, but Audiobooks would be very handy.

This would be awesome. please do this. I currently have no good way to manage audio books

I've added it as a FR on GH, btw: https://github.com/lidarr/Lidarr/issues/453

I'm not sure why this is such a highly voted feature request. The lidarr site specifically says it's for music. If people want a tool for audio books, there are several other projects out there. https://gitlab.com/LazyLibrarian/LazyLibrarian for example.

@fromthewoods LazyLibrarian is, unfortunately, absolutely terrible. It has a terrible UI and UX, and rarely works in my opinion. A Sonarr branched service to grab and manage audiobooks would be incredible, and Lidarr is the "closest" in functionality because it already handle similar file types and organisation.

@bothari I get that. I moved from headphones to Lidarr and am blown away at how much time I wasted fiddling with headphones. I just want to ensure Lidarr gets core feature requests for music addressed before valuable time is put into requests that are somewhat unrelated to this project.

@fromthewoods. This! - I'd much rather have e.g. various artists implemented before audiobooks are even considered.

@Bothari I have to admit LazyLibrarian is awful. I would love if lidarr would implement the requested feature.
