OverDrive Media Console update for Windows
We are excited to announce new versions of OverDrive Media Console (OMC) for Windows. Both the classic desktop version of OMC for Windows and the Windows 8 app have been updated to provide a better user experience and improved performance
OMC 3.3 for Windows (the classic desktop version) includes some design updates and support for integration with OMC 3 for Windows 8. Users can download the latest version of OMC for Windows from the OMC website.
OMC 3 for Windows 8 ( available in the Windows Store ) includes these new features:
Font selection and dictionary support for eBooks.
An enhanced audiobook player with a sleep timer and variable speed playback.
The ability to sync reading progress and bookmarks across devices using OverDrive One.
New integration with OMC 3.3 for Windows so you can burn audiobooks to CD (as permitted) or transfer them to MP3 players (both apps must be installed).
Note: When you click Transfer or Burn from the OMC 3 for Windows 8, it will open OMC 3.3 for Windows on your desktop to complete the process.
System Requirements: Windows XP (or newer), Internet Explorer 7 (or newer), Windows Media Player 9 series (or newer).
If you have trouble or questions about the update, or would like to know more about our downloadable media, we are here to help. Please call 336-703-3007 or your local branch during open hours or ask your librarian anytime.
