If you are an avid audiobook listener, you might have encountered the problem of Audible DRM. Audible DRM is a digital rights management system that prevents you from playing your purchased audiobooks on unauthorized devices or apps. This can be frustrating if you want to enjoy your audiobooks on different platforms or share them with your friends.
Fortunately, there is a way to rip Audible DRM using a free software called InAudible. InAudible is a Windows program that can convert Audible audiobooks to MP3, M4A, M4B, FLAC, or OGG formats without losing quality. It can also preserve the chapter information and metadata of your audiobooks. In this article, we will show you how to use InAudible to rip Audible DRM in a few simple steps.
Step 1: Download and install InAudible
You can download InAudible from this GitHub page. There are two versions available: InAudible-NG and InAudible-NG Tables. The difference is that the latter version includes some pre-computed tables that can speed up the decryption process. However, it also requires more disk space and memory. You can choose either version according to your preference.
After downloading the zip file, extract it to a folder of your choice. Then run the setup.exe file and follow the instructions to install InAudible on your computer.
Step 2: Launch InAudible and import your Audible audiobooks
Once you have installed InAudible, launch it from the Start menu or the desktop shortcut. You will see the main interface of InAudible as shown below:
To import your Audible audiobooks, click on the \"Add Files\" button at the top left corner. You can browse to the folder where your Audible audiobooks are stored, or you can drag and drop them directly into the InAudible window. You can also select multiple files at once by holding down the Ctrl key while clicking on them.
After importing your Audible audiobooks, you will see them listed in the main window with their titles, authors, durations, and file sizes. You can also view more details about each audiobook by clicking on the \"Info\" button at the bottom right corner.
Step 3: Choose the output format and settings
Next, you need to choose the output format and settings for your converted audiobooks. To do this, click on the \"Options\" button at the top right corner. You will see a new window with several tabs as shown below:
In the \"General\" tab, you can choose the output folder where your converted audiobooks will be saved. You can also choose whether to delete the original files after conversion or not.
In the \"Output Format\" tab, you can choose the output format for your converted audiobooks. You can choose from MP3, M4A, M4B, FLAC, or OGG formats. Each format has its own advantages and disadvantages in terms of quality, compatibility, and file size. You can also adjust the bitrate and sample rate of your output files according to your preference.
In the \"Splitting\" tab, you can choose whether to split your converted audiobooks into smaller files or not. You can split them by chapters or by time intervals. Splitting can be useful if you want to organize your audiobooks better or if you have limited storage space on your device.
In the \"Metadata\" tab, you can edit the metadata of your converted audiobooks such as title, author, genre, year, cover art, etc. You can also choose whether to embed the metadata into the output files or not.
In the \"Advanced\" tab, you can tweak some advanced settings such as encryption method, error correction mode, silence removal mode, etc. These settings are usually not necessary to change unless you encounter aa16f39245
