Locating Audio Media using the Internet Archive
Sometimes it can be difficult to know what other audio media are out there to listen to. One good source of audio books, lectures and the like, is the Internet Archive Website. This lists available video and audio media by category and also allows you to search their archive database for titles or content.
If you are using Banshee, there is a "Internet Archive" option in the "online Media" section of the left hand navbar:
From here, you can drill down on a category or locate something with the "Search" facility. Both will return a list of matching topic, such as that shown below:
Double-clicking any item in the list will display details of the selected item (-for example, you can see the item below is a PDF and not an audio file):
For audio files, you will see the tracks listed on the right hand side: Double click on a track to play it in Banshee. Alternatively, left-click a track and then left-click the Play icon (green triangle):
Note: all this functionality is available via the website if you are not using Banshee:
