View Files with Plugins

A viewer-plugin is a plugin that is programmed just like any other plugin, but acts to display, edit, write or otherwise deal with a file.

Viewer plugins are kept in ".rockbox/viewers/". They can be used to browse a file when invoked with the ON+PLAY menu choice "view with" and they are invoked when a file with its associated registered extension is used.

The extension <=> plugin connection is set in the ".rockbox/viewers.config" file.

Below follows an example showing the file format of the viewers.config file. The 6 hexadecimal digits are the icon for the extension that shows up in the file browser.
