       char const *constpath, LIBMTP_progressfunc_t constcallback, void const
       *constdata)
       This gets a file off the device to a local file identified by a
       filename.

       Parameters:
           device a pointer to the device to get the track from.
           id the file ID of the file to retrieve.

       uint32_t constid, int constfd, LIBMTP_progressfunc_t constcallback,
       void const *constdata)
       This gets a file off the device to a file identified by a file
       descriptor.

       This function can potentially be used for streaming files off the
       device for playback or broadcast for example, by downloading the file
       into a stream sink e.g. a socket.

       Parameters:
           device a pointer to the device to get the file from.
           id the file ID of the file to retrieve.
           fd a local file descriptor to write the file 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.

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

       THIS FUNCTION IS DEPRECATED. PLEASE UPDATE YOUR CODE IN ORDER NOT TO
       USE IT.

   LIBMTP_file_t* LIBMTP_Get_Filelisting_With_Callback (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t
       *device, LIBMTP_progressfunc_t constcallback, void const *constdata)
       This returns a long list of all files available on the current MTP
       device. Folders will not be returned, but abstract entities like
       playlists and albums will show up as 'files'. Typical usage:

       LIBMTP_file_t *filelist;

       filelist = LIBMTP_Get_Filelisting_With_Callback(device, callback, data);
       while (filelist != NULL) {
         LIBMTP_file_t *tmp;

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

       If you want to group your file listing by storage (per storage unit) or
       arrange files into folders, you must dereference the storage_id and/or
       parent_id field of the returned LIBMTP_file_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 file 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 files that can be followed using the next field of the
           LIBMTP_file_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_file_t* LIBMTP_Get_Filemetadata (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t *device,
       uint32_t constfileid)
       This function retrieves the metadata for a single file off the device.

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

       Incidentally this function will return metadata for a folder
       (association) as well, but this is not a proper use of it, it is
       intended for file manipulation, not folder manipulation.

       Parameters:
           device a pointer to the device to get the file metadata from.
           fileid the object ID of the file that you want the metadata for.

       Returns:
           a metadata entry on success or NULL on failure.

   LIBMTP_file_t* LIBMTP_Get_Files_And_Folders (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t *device,
       uint32_t conststorage, uint32_t constparent)
       This function retrieves the contents of a certain folder with id parent
       on a certain storage on a certain device. The result contains both
       files and folders. The device used with this operations must have been
       opened with LIBMTP_Open_Raw_Device_Uncached() or it will fail.

       NOTE: the request will always perform I/O with the device.

       Parameters:
           device a pointer to the MTP device to report info from.
           storage a storage on the device to report info from. If 0 is passed
           in, the files for the given parent will be searched across all
           available storages.
           parent the parent folder id.

   char const* LIBMTP_Get_Filetype_Description (LIBMTP_filetype_tintype)
       This helper function returns a textual description for a libmtp file
       type to be used in dialog boxes etc.

       Parameters:
           intype the libmtp internal filetype to get a description for.

       Returns:
           a string representing the filetype, this must NOT be free():ed by
           the caller!

   int LIBMTP_Get_Representative_Sample (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t *device, uint32_t
       constid, LIBMTP_filesampledata_t *sampledata)
       This routine gets representative sample data for an object. This uses
       the RepresentativeSampleData property of the album, if the device
       supports it.

       Parameters:
           device a pointer to the device which the object is on.
           id unique id of the object to get data for.
           pointer to LIBMTP_filesampledata_t struct to receive data

       Returns:
           0 on success, any other value means failure.

   int LIBMTP_Get_Representative_Sample_Format (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t *device,
       LIBMTP_filetype_t constfiletype, LIBMTP_filesampledata_t **sample)
       This routine figures out whether a certain filetype supports
       representative samples (small thumbnail images) or not. This typically
       applies to JPEG files, MP3 files and Album abstract playlists, but in
       theory any filetype could support representative samples.

       Parameters:
           device a pointer to the device which is to be examined.
           filetype the fileype to examine, and return the representative
           sample properties for.
           sample this will contain a new sample type with the fields filled
           in with suitable default values. For example, the supported sample
           type will be set, the supported height and width will be set to max
           values if it is an image sample, and duration will also be given
           some suitable default value which should not be exceeded on audio
           samples. If the device does not support samples for this filetype,
           this pointer will be NULL. If it is not NULL, the user must destroy
           this struct with LIBMTP_destroy_filesampledata_t() after use.

       Returns:
           0 on success, any other value means failure.

   LIBMTP_file_t* LIBMTP_new_file_t (void)
       This creates a new file 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_file_t operation later, so be careful
       of using strdup() when assigning strings, e.g.:

       LIBMTP_file_t *file = LIBMTP_new_file_t();
       file->filename = strdup(namestr);
       ....
       LIBMTP_destroy_file_t(file);

       Returns:
           a pointer to the newly allocated metadata structure.

       To read events sent by the device, repeatedly call this function from a
       secondary thread until the return value is < 0.

       Parameters:
           device a pointer to the MTP device to poll for events.
           event contains a pointer to be filled in with the event retrieved
           if the call is successful.
           out1 contains the param1 value from the raw event.

       Returns:
           0 on success, any other value means the polling loop shall be
           terminated immediately for this session.

       This function sends 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.
           filedata a file metadata set to be written along with the file.
           After this call the field filedata->item_id will contain the new
           file ID. Other fields such as the filedata->filename,

           this operation due to device restrictions, so do not rely on the
           contents of this struct to be preserved in any way.

           · filedata->parent_id should be set to the parent (e.g. folder) to
             store this file in. If this is 0, the file will be stored in the
             root folder.
           · filedata->storage_id should be set to the desired storage (e.g.
             memory card or whatever your device presents) to store this file
             in. Setting this to 0 will store the file 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

       LIBMTP_progressfunc_t constcallback, void const *constdata)
       This function sends a generic file from a handler function to an MTP
       device. A filename and a set of metadata must be given as input.
       This can potentially be used for sending in a stream of unknown length.
       Send music files with LIBMTP_Send_Track_From_Handler()
       Parameters:
           device a pointer to the device to send the file to.
           get_func the function to call to get data to write
           priv a user-defined pointer that is passed along to get_func. If
           not used, this is set to NULL.
           filedata a file metadata set to be written along with the file.
           After this call the field filedata->item_id will contain the new
           file ID. Other fields such as the filedata->filename,
           filedata->parent_id or filedata->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.

           · filedata->parent_id should be set to the parent (e.g. folder) to
             store this file in. If this is 0, the file will be stored in the
             root folder.
           · filedata->storage_id should be set to the desired storage (e.g.
             memory card or whatever your device presents) to store this file
             in. Setting this to 0 will store the file on the primary storage.

   int LIBMTP_Send_Representative_Sample (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t *device, uint32_t
       constid, LIBMTP_filesampledata_t *sampledata)
       This routine sends representative sample data for an object. This uses
       the RepresentativeSampleData property of the album, if the device
       supports it. The data should be of a format acceptable to the player
       (for iRiver and Creative, this seems to be JPEG) and must not be too
       large. (for a Creative, max seems to be about 20KB.) Check by calling
       LIBMTP_Get_Representative_Sample_Format() to get maximum size,
       dimensions, etc..
       Parameters:
           device a pointer to the device which the object is on.
           id unique id of the object to set artwork for.
           pointer to LIBMTP_filesampledata_t struct containing data
       Returns:
           0 on success, any other value means failure.

   int LIBMTP_Set_File_Name (LIBMTP_mtpdevice_t *device, LIBMTP_file_t *file,
       const char *newname)
       This function renames a single file. This simply means that the
       PTP_OPC_ObjectFileName property is updated, if this is supported by the
       device.
       Parameters:
           device a pointer to the device that contains the file.
           file the file metadata of the file to rename. On success, the
           filename member is updated. Be aware, that this name can be
           different than newname depending of device restrictions.
           newname the new filename for this object.
       Returns:
           0 on success, any other value means failure.
