Channel is rebranded and I keep upload as much as I can. I will post monthly in the statistics thread how we are doing on YouTube in total and for the last months as it may interest people .

This is really great! I have subscribed. :) It's an easy way to tell people how to listen to our books -- our catalog can be confusing, but nearly everyone understands YouTube. You can even do rudimentary searches -- I tried with "Kara Shallenberg", "Heidi", "Wind Willows" and "Austen" and got the expected results each time. :clap:

Whoa I just noticed the playlists. Is your process reading our metadata and making these playlists automagically? SO COOL!!!

Yes its picking up genres, author and language to place it in the respective playlist automatically. I'm glad you like it, I am trying to add and use every bit of information from the original catalogue as possible to give the same feeling as listening here.

I agree, it's very well done. I also especially like playlists. One of the author playlists I checked out was missing a few things that I know we have, but I suppose it's because they're newer additions and you haven't gotten to them yet. :)
