As we went through the mailing-list archives, we saw that many people
were talking about a GUI frontend to manager their iRiver. There were
also talks of making a library out of the current implementation. So, we
went for it. :-)
Basically, what we did do is taking the original codebase
(ifp-line-0.1.1) and we applied Jum's patches to it. Then we started
hacking on it to make a general library out of this. We're also working
on a gnome-vfs module which will allow users to manage their media
player via nautilus. We're also thinking about a nautilus view, but
that's way off.
The library is called libiriver and its only requirement is libusb >
0.1.7. There is a small test program in test/ifp.c (which is modelled on
the original ifp program) which demonstrates how to use the library. You
can also build the API reference by passing --enable-gtk-docs at
configure time. We believe that the implementation is pretty clean and
will make it quite easy to develop either VFS modules or GUIs.
We've tested its functionality quite extensively. Even though, there
could be small glitches here and there or things that might be improved.
So, if you find any, we'd like to hear it, so we can fix it! Also, if
you think that it is missing some basic functionality, please let us
know. And ideas, comments and rants are welcome.
You can download libiriver-0.0.1 at:
Last but not least, we'd really like to thank Pavel and Jum for their
work on the iRiver. This library couldn't have seen the day without
We hope you'll enjoy working with libiriver as much as we did enjoy
