Audible audiobook format support

Post by fairred » Tue Oct 06, 2009 9:47 am

I did not yet look into Audible's various formats for DRMed audiobooks, but bought a few in .aa, and would like the music manager I wrote using getID3 to give me an MD5 :)

md5_file($filename) ?
Or is there some metadata on these files and you're looking for an audio-portion-only md5?

Exactly. The format has proprietary metadata at the beginning, which changes when playing the file, to store your position in the book. The rest is encrypted MP3. A hash over that part would be great.

If you want format support, send sample files.
