mtpfs(1) FUSE filesystem for Media Transfer Protocol devices


mtpfs mountpoint [options]


mtpfs is a FUSE filesystem that supports reading and writing from MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) devices, such as MP3 players, video players or digital cameras.

When files are written to the filesystem their file extension is checked to determine the filetype. This means that images, videos and ICS files (for example) will be recognised by the player rather than setting filetype to `unknown'.

There is also a virtual directory called "/Playlists" which contains your playlists as .m3u files. If you write an m3u file to that directory a playlist will be created as well. m3u files are just a text file containing a list of all tracks you want in the playlist one per line).


mtpfs accepts the following options:
