Fear and Loathing in the Media Transfer Protocol - Linus Walleij, Linaro

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) was invented as a transactional file system for media players, based on the Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP), an ISO standard used by cameras. It was a marginal project until all Android devices started shipping with an MTP stack. Now most everyone doing consumer devices deploy this protocol, so let us show you how this looks from the host side: what happens when a library (MTP responder) tries to talk to all these wildly diverging MTP implementations out there.
