POE Releasing Standards of AUDIOBOOKS
Since we have decided to open this new scene, we thought it was time for
a standard ruleset. Any other groups that wish to compete in the english
audiobook scene can contact us if they have questions, or want the rules
1 - Audiobooks will be encoded in mp3 at 32kbit/22050Hz/Mono. This
approximates to roughly 10mb per hour of audio. Now this might seem
a rather low standard. However keep in mind that this is purely
spoken word. No bells and whistles -g-
Now it is allowed to split the audio into 80 minute slices so they
can be burned on conventional cd burners. Otherwise this format is
perfectly capable of operating on a standard standalone mp3 player.
2 - Release directory names will consist of the following information:
Name of Author
Name of Book
Also prefered is the tag of ABRIDGED or UNABRIDGED; Example:
Other TAGS that are accepted are:
AUDIOMAG ( this includes papers / magazines / etc. )
3 - Included will be the standard .m3u playlist and standard sfv.
This concludes the standard Audiobook Ruleset. If any changes are made
a revised version will be included with a POE release.
