what I've currently being doing is getting free, public domain books like shakespear or h.g. wells, converting to aac, changing the extension and poof (6 files for 6 chapters, and with a little fiddling chapter no#, or name of chapter)

But today I downloaded a free audiobook at an attempt to see what it looked like and saw the bookmarks! SOOOOO. why not change my existing?! cause its been freaking hard so far. I used a tool called "join together", loaded track listings, setup as stereo, 64kbps, chapterized.. What I got was a small m4b file, with only 32kbps, mono and during chapterizing it keeped going on and on and on. I kept it all night to make sure and nada

I also found a howto for audio cds that seems would work but that won't help
alll stuff is mp3, or ogg -- unforunately

SOOOO here I am, looking for a way to either convert, combine AND save to audiobook /w chapters or just save to audiobook /w chapters. Can someone please provide me some information. Preferably free toys, and preferably windows (because my macbook is junk). If this is also a way for me to chapterize tvshows or movies.. let me know? I'd preferably like to do that with some things I converted for a trip comming later

If this is also something that can be done for movie /tv show I'd like to hear

For free

For $10
(and they have a how to for enabling ogg support)

Both for Mac - you are on a Mac forum after all - have not done any of this on my Win machines.

Video is a whole other animal.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
