Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) runtime tools

libmtp is a library for communicating with MTP aware devices in POSIX compliant operating systems. It implements MTP Basic, the subset proposed for standardization. . The Media Transfer Protocol (commonly referred to as MTP) is a devised set of custom extensions to support the transfer of music files on USB digital audio players and movie files on USB portable media players. . This package provides mtp-probe, a program to probe newly connected device interfaces from userspace to determine if they are MTP devices, used for udev rules.
