    Question Spec for file format for binary *.plist files?

    Hi, does anybody know how to parse the binary *.plist files that are found on the iPhone, e.g. PlayCounts.plist. I have to do this on Windows, no mac with the plutil utility. So a pointer to file format specs would be fine too, but even better a working parser code in C/C++.

    Background: I enhance the ml_ipod plugin for Winamp to work with the iPhone. The chosen path is to copy files with ssh/scp. While copying the iTunesDB or a song, it is quite bad if the phone locks up and the ssh connection goes down, so I have to prevent this.

    Nice for testing, thanks. But I need a way to do the conversion on the fly myself, in the plugin code.

    Google fpr a perl script called plutil. Only have my cut-amd-pastelsss iphone right now, so sorry I can't give you the link. I also can't vouch for the quality. I just grabed it for future reference. It should be sufficient to teach you how to parse...
