Mms2r 1.1.0 Released

We need additional MMS samples to increase the powers of MMS2R!

You can help make MMS2R super awesome and radigical (radical+magical)!

Please send an MMS image from your cellphone to:
[email protected]
and then send another MMS image to the address above and attach a text
message with the image.

Cool pictures will be added to MMS2R’s Flickr page:[email protected]/

mms2r version 1.1.0 has been released!


MMS2R is a library that decodes the parts of an MMS message to disk
stripping out advertising injected by the cellphone carriers. MMS
messages are
multipart email and the carriers often inject branding into these
messages. Use
MMS2R if you want to get at the real user generated content from a MMS
having to deal with the cruft from the carriers.

If MMS2R is not aware of a particular carrier no extra processing is
to the MMS other than decoding and consolidating its media.

Contact the author to add additional carriers to be processed by the
library. Suggestions and patches appreciated and welcomed!
