Copying file from MTP Device over USB using libmtp (& BASH)

Have a current project where I'm trying to figure out a way to copy files(a video) from a MTP device over USB.
From the wiki I discover there is an open-source implementation called libmtp. Has anyone reading this used this? Any examples, tutorials?
I'd prefer to run Ubuntu with MATE.

Unix-like systems
A free and open-source implementation of the Media Transfer Protocol is available as libmtp.[13] This library incorporates product and device IDs from many sources,[9] and is commonly used in other software for MTP support.
