Hoopla ebook/audiobook service, tip
« on: December 29, 2019, 12:09:25 pm »
A Tip.    You do not need to login to your library webpage, to access the Hoopla service.  Just go directly to the Hoopla webpage and login with the email address and password that you used, when setting up your Hoopla account, initially, from your library account.

However, if you are running Linux from your computer, Hoopla does not support Linux and the audiobook service did not work for me.  Hoopla just kept trying to stream the audiobook but that is as far as it got.

Good tip. People might not realize they don't need to use a special link from the library.
