Listening FAQs


How do I listen to my audiobooks?

Listening to your audiobooks is as simple as listening to music. Download the free Libro.fm app in the App Store or Google Play Store and log in with the email and password you created on the Libro.fm site. You’ll continue to purchase audiobooks from the Libro.fm site while using the app to listen. You can learn more about how to use the Libro.fm app in our App FAQs. Don’t want to use the app?

Do I own the audiobook? And can I listen to it on multiple computers and/or devices?

Yes, you own the audiobook. Libro.fm is one of the few places where every audiobook is DRM-free (DRM stands for Digital Rights Management), which we like to call cage-free. A cage-free model fits our independent nature and it means you can listen to your audiobooks anytime, anywhere, on any device.

How do I download a zip folder and listen on my computer?

While we recommend using the Libro.fm iOS or Android app, it’s easy to listen to audiobooks on your computer. You can download the zipped folder(s) containing the DRM-free MP3 files directly to your computer and import these files into your media player of choice. Just follow the steps below:

Step 1

Download the audiobook zip files to your computer.

Step 2

Unzip the files to get a folder of audio files.

  • On a Mac: The zip files should automatically open and show you a folder with the audio files. If not, just double-click the zip files.
  • On Windows: Right-click and select Extract All to get a folder with the audio files.

Step 3

Drag and drop the audio files into iTunes or the player of your choice.
