Function Documentation

 

void LIBMTP_destroy_track_t (LIBMTP_track_t *track)This destroys a track metadata structure and deallocates the memory used by it, including any strings. Never use a track metadata structure again after calling this function on it.

Parameters:

track the track metadata to destroy.

int LIBMTP_Get_Track_To_File (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t *device, uint32_t constid, char const *constpath, LIBMTP_progressfunc_t constcallback, void const *constdata)This gets a track off the device to a file identified by a filename. This is actually just a wrapper for the LIBMTP_Get_Track_To_File() function.

Parameters:

device a pointer to the device to get the track from.
id the track ID of the track to retrieve.
path a filename to use for the retrieved track.
callback a progress indicator function or NULL to ignore.
data a user-defined pointer that is passed along to the progress function in order to pass along some user defined data to the progress updates. If not used, set this to NULL.

Returns:

0 if the transfer was successful, any other value means failure.

int LIBMTP_Get_Track_To_File_Descriptor (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t *device, uint32_t constid, int constfd, LIBMTP_progressfunc_t constcallback, void const *constdata)This gets a track off the device to a file identified by a file descriptor. This is actually just a wrapper for the LIBMTP_Get_File_To_File_Descriptor() function.

Parameters:

device a pointer to the device to get the track from.
id the track ID of the track to retrieve.
fd a file descriptor to write the track to.
callback a progress indicator function or NULL to ignore.
data a user-defined pointer that is passed along to the progress function in order to pass along some user defined data to the progress updates. If not used, set this to NULL.

int LIBMTP_Get_Track_To_Handler (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t *device, uint32_t constid, MTPDataPutFuncput_func, void *priv, LIBMTP_progressfunc_t constcallback, void const *constdata)This gets a track off the device to a handler function. This is actually just a wrapper for the LIBMTP_Get_File_To_Handler() function.

Parameters:

device a pointer to the device to get the track from.
id the track ID of the track to retrieve.
put_func the function to call when we have data.
priv the user-defined pointer that is passed to put_func.
callback a progress indicator function or NULL to ignore.
data a user-defined pointer that is passed along to the progress function in order to pass along some user defined data to the progress updates. If not used, set this to NULL.

LIBMTP_Get_Tracklisting_With_Callback()

References LIBMTP_Get_Tracklisting_With_Callback().  

LIBMTP_track_t* LIBMTP_Get_Tracklisting_With_Callback (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t *device, LIBMTP_progressfunc_t constcallback, void const *constdata)This returns a long list of all tracks available on the current MTP device. Tracks include multimedia objects, both music tracks and video tracks. Typical usage:


 LIBMTP_track_t *tracklist;

 tracklist = LIBMTP_Get_Tracklisting_With_Callback(device, callback, data);
 while (tracklist != NULL) {
   LIBMTP_track_t *tmp;

   // Do something on each element in the list here...
   tmp = tracklist;
   tracklist = tracklist->next;
   LIBMTP_destroy_track_t(tmp);
 }
 

If you want to group your track listing by storage (per storage unit) or arrange tracks into folders, you must dereference the storage_id and/or parent_id field of the returned LIBMTP_track_t struct. To arrange by folders or files you typically have to create the proper trees by calls to LIBMTP_Get_Storage() and/or LIBMTP_Get_Folder_List() first.

Parameters:

device a pointer to the device to get the track listing for.
callback a function to be called during the tracklisting retrieveal for displaying progress bars etc, or NULL if you don't want any callbacks.
data a user-defined pointer that is passed along to the progress function in order to pass along some user defined data to the progress updates. If not used, set this to NULL.

Returns:

a list of tracks that can be followed using the next field of the LIBMTP_track_t data structure. Each of the metadata tags must be freed after use, and may contain only partial metadata information, i.e. one or several fields may be NULL or 0.

LIBMTP_track_t* LIBMTP_Get_Tracklisting_With_Callback_For_Storage (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t *device, uint32_t conststorage_id, LIBMTP_progressfunc_t constcallback, void const *constdata)This returns a long list of all tracks available on the current MTP device. Tracks include multimedia objects, both music tracks and video tracks. Typical usage:


 LIBMTP_track_t *tracklist;

 tracklist = LIBMTP_Get_Tracklisting_With_Callback_For_Storage(device, storage_id, callback, data);
 while (tracklist != NULL) {
   LIBMTP_track_t *tmp;

   // Do something on each element in the list here...
   tmp = tracklist;
   tracklist = tracklist->next;
   LIBMTP_destroy_track_t(tmp);
 }
 

If you want to group your track listing by storage (per storage unit) or arrange tracks into folders, you must dereference the storage_id and/or parent_id field of the returned LIBMTP_track_t struct. To arrange by folders or files you typically have to create the proper trees by calls to LIBMTP_Get_Storage() and/or LIBMTP_Get_Folder_List() first.

Parameters:

device a pointer to the device to get the track listing for.
storage_id ID of device storage (if null, no filter)
callback a function to be called during the tracklisting retrieveal for displaying progress bars etc, or NULL if you don't want any callbacks.
data a user-defined pointer that is passed along to the progress function in order to pass along some user defined data to the progress updates. If not used, set this to NULL.

Returns:

a list of tracks that can be followed using the next field of the LIBMTP_track_t data structure. Each of the metadata tags must be freed after use, and may contain only partial metadata information, i.e. one or several fields may be NULL or 0.

LIBMTP_track_t* LIBMTP_Get_Trackmetadata (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t *device, uint32_t consttrackid)This function retrieves the metadata for a single track off the device.

Do not call this function repeatedly! The track handles are linearly searched O(n) and the call may involve (slow) USB traffic, so use LIBMTP_Get_Tracklisting() and cache the tracks, preferably as an efficient data structure such as a hash list.

Parameters:

device a pointer to the device to get the track metadata from.
trackid the object ID of the track that you want the metadata for.

Returns:

a track metadata entry on success or NULL on failure.

LIBMTP_track_t* LIBMTP_new_track_t (void)This creates a new track metadata structure and allocates memory for it. Notice that if you add strings to this structure they will be freed by the corresponding LIBMTP_destroy_track_t operation later, so be careful of using strdup() when assigning strings, e.g.:


 LIBMTP_track_t *track = LIBMTP_new_track_t();
 track->title = strdup(titlestr);
 ....
 LIBMTP_destroy_track_t(track);
 

Returns:

a pointer to the newly allocated metadata structure.

int LIBMTP_Send_Track_From_File (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t *device, char const *constpath, LIBMTP_track_t *constmetadata, LIBMTP_progressfunc_t constcallback, void const *constdata)This function sends a track from a local file to an MTP device. A filename and a set of metadata must be given as input.

Parameters:

device a pointer to the device to send the track to.
path the filename of a local file which will be sent.
metadata a track metadata set to be written along with the file. After this call the field metadata->item_id will contain the new track ID. Other fields such as the metadata->filename, metadata->parent_id or metadata->storage_id may also change during this operation due to device restrictions, so do not rely on the contents of this struct to be preserved in any way.

metadata->parent_id should be set to the parent (e.g. folder) to store this track in. Since some devices are a bit picky about where files are placed, a default folder will be chosen if libmtp has detected one for the current filetype and this parameter is set to 0. If this is 0 and no default folder can be found, the file will be stored in the root folder.
metadata->storage_id should be set to the desired storage (e.g. memory card or whatever your device presents) to store this track in. Setting this to 0 will store the track on the primary storage.


callback a progress indicator function or NULL to ignore.
data a user-defined pointer that is passed along to the progress function in order to pass along some user defined data to the progress updates. If not used, set this to NULL.

Returns:

0 if the transfer was successful, any other value means failure.

int LIBMTP_Update_Track_Metadata (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t *device, LIBMTP_track_t const *constmetadata)This function updates the MTP track object metadata on a single file identified by an object ID.

Parameters:

device a pointer to the device to update the track metadata on.
metadata a track metadata set to be written to the file. notice that the track_id field of the metadata structure must be correct so that the function can update the right file. If some properties of this metadata are set to NULL (strings) or 0 (numerical values) they will be discarded and the track will not be tagged with these blank values.

Returns:

0 on success, any other value means failure. If some or all of the properties fail to update we will still return success. On some devices (notably iRiver T30) properties that exist cannot be updated.
