Contents

libgpod is a shared library, written using C and GLib/GObject, used by gtkpod to access the contents of an iPod.

Features

libgpod supports playlists, smart playlists, playcounts, skipcounts, ratings, podcasts and cover art. Audio, video and photos are also supported. It has Python and C# bindings.

Latest stable release is version 0.8.0. This release has support for all iPod models except the iPod Nano 6g (the touch one). Most non-jailbroken iOS devices (iPod Touch, iPhone) are also supported with the notable exception of the iPad and the iPhone/iPod Touch 4 which are only supported as read-only devices.

You are welcome and encouraged to use this library in your own projects and extend its functionality. Please contact gtkpod-devel at lists.sourceforge.net for assistance. Donations (iPod hardware or money) are always useful to help us improve supports for the vast collection of iPod models that exist today.
