Ripping and spliting and tagging audiobooks and albums from YouTube


Check out my scripts folder for two new uploads today (although I made them quite a bit ago).

First is tag, a simple wrapper for opustags and vorbiscomment that gives a easier interface for manually tagging .opus and .ogg files.

More notable, however is booksplit, which uses the script above to take a long audio file and a list of timecodes and automatically splits that file up into tracks/chapter files.

I use this when I can only find some audio content on YouTube and want to convert it to typical music files for listening offline, all with appropriate tags.

I just put up a video on all of this here.
