Audiobook File Format
Zip file: Some audiobooks are bulky and may be compressed in zip file(s), Please download the file and unzip the contents. The zip file should not be password protected.
MP3 (.mp3): MP3 is the name of the file extension and also the name of the type of file for MPEG, audio layer 3. Layer 3 is one of three coding schemes (layer 1, layer 2 and layer 3) for the compression of audio signals. A common file can be played by most streaming programs and music devices. However most players do not allow “bookmarks” the progress like m4b files. Fortunately some audiobook players come with features that allows “bookmarks”.
M4B (.m4b): Audiobook/podcast extension with AAC or ALAC encoded audio in an MPEG-4 container. Both M4A and M4B formats can contain metadata including chapter markers, images, and hyperlinks, but M4B allows “bookmarks”, whereas most other formats like MP3, M4A do not. If, for example. you are listening to a book on your devices, you can conveniently pause (bookmark) it and resume where you left off at another time simply with iTunes or common m4b players. This is a lot more convenient than having to skip through the whole book trying to find the exact point you got to. Audiobooks can be a few hours long and so the M4b format is the perfect choice due to its bookmarking feature.
