Detailed Description

Function Documentation

int LIBMTP_Create_New_Album (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t * device, LIBMTP_album_t *const metadata)

This routine creates a new album based on the metadata supplied. If the tracks field of the metadata contains a track listing, these tracks will be added to the album.

Parameters

device a pointer to the device to create the new album on.
metadata the metadata for the new album. If the function exits with success, the album_id field of this struct will contain the new ID of the album.

  • 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.

Returns

0 on success, any other value means failure.

This recursively deletes the memory for an album structure

Parameters

album structure to destroy

LIBMTP_album_t* LIBMTP_Get_Album (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t * device, uint32_t const albid)

This function retrieves an individual album from the device.

Parameters

device a pointer to the device to get the album from.
albid the unique ID of the album to retrieve.

Returns

a valid album metadata or NULL on failure.

LIBMTP_album_t* LIBMTP_Get_Album_List (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t * device)

This function returns a list of the albums available on the device.

Parameters

device a pointer to the device to get the album listing from.

Returns

an album list on success, else NULL. If there are no albums on the device, NULL will be returned as well.

LIBMTP_album_t* LIBMTP_Get_Album_List_For_Storage (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t * device, uint32_t const storage_id)

This function returns a list of the albums available on the device. You can filter on the storage ID.

Parameters

device a pointer to the device to get the album listing from.
storage_id ID of device storage (if null, all storages)

Returns

an album list on success, else NULL. If there are no albums on the device, NULL will be returned as well.

LIBMTP_album_t* LIBMTP_new_album_t (void)

This creates a new album 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_album_t operation later, so be careful of using strdup() when assigning strings.

Returns

a pointer to the newly allocated metadata structure.

int LIBMTP_Set_Album_Name (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t * device, LIBMTP_album_t * album, const char * newname)

This function renames a single album. This simply means that the PTP_OPC_ObjectFileName property is updated, if this is supported by the device. The album filename should nominally end with an extension like '.alb'.

NOTE: if you want to change the metadata the device display about a playlist you must not use this function, use LIBMTP_Update_Album() instead!

Parameters

device a pointer to the device that contains the file.
album the album metadata of the album to rename. On success, the name member is updated. Be aware, that this name can be different than newname depending of device restrictions.
newname the new name for this object.

Returns

0 on success, any other value means failure.

LIBMTP_Update_Album()

int LIBMTP_Update_Album (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t * device, LIBMTP_album_t const *const metadata)

This routine updates an album based on the metadata supplied. If the tracks field of the metadata contains a track listing, these tracks will be added to the album in place of those already present, i.e. the previous track listing will be deleted.

Parameters

device a pointer to the device to create the new album on.
metadata the metadata for the album to be updated. notice that the field album_id must contain the appropriate album ID.

Returns

0 on success, any other value means failure.
