    Does anyone know how to skip audiobook mp3 files in Media Player. It's especially troublesome when trying to listen to music on random. I guess I could make a playlist, but I have thousands of songs I'd have to add. What I would really like to do is just exclude the Audiobook folder from the Music Player all together.

    I use ambling book player (I think it is like $5), it adds an .ab to the end of the file, works as a great audio book pyaler and will remove those tracks from the music player.

    I also use Ambling Book Player, and have noticed that it now places a .nomedia file in the folder with the books audio files. This file will exclude most media apps from scanning the folder for files. Also, depending on your audiobook player app, it may also cause it to skip these folders as well. The .nomedia file appears to be just a blank file that you could simply create yourself. All you need to do is make a blank text file in the folder and rename it .nomedia
