How to play Audible audiobooks on Kodi?

Kodi® media center is an award-winning free and open source cross-platform software media player and entertainment hub for digital media for HTPCs (Home theater PCs).

Unlike other streaming software companies such as Android TV or Plex, Kodi does not provide you with any content. This means that you will need to provide all media (music, shows, movies, etc.).

Kodi is available on almost every device. The media center software is easy to download and compatible with OS X, Linux, Windows, Android, and even the Raspberry Pi series of microcomputers. It supports nas, local disk, USB and other storage devices, allowing you to build a private media library.

Kodi official download address: "KODI", you can choose to download according to your system, if you are a TV box and smart TV user, you can choose the above Android version.
