I haven't thought about the idea to have audio books in emby before, but it's a really great idea.
I'm a Plexile with ~250 audiobooks, and I've put a great deal of effort into tagging and organizing them. My wife and I both regularly listen to audiobooks, and having audiobook support in Emby would fix one (of the two) issues I have with it that keep me from dropping Plex altogether. Last I checked, the Book content type didn't have an ability to "Play" an entire album/folder.
Seriously. Plex does have track-level resume for audio files, but that's it. And its Android app, which I use extremely frequently for audiobooks, comes with a host of music-player-related bugs that have been outstanding for nigh upon years now with no coming fix. Track-level resume is literally the only thing Plex has for audiobooks that Emby does not (aside from cosmetic differences). If that is implemented, the only other issue I have with Emby is how Downloads are organized.
