File name length problems

Postby TargetBoy » Fri Feb 03, 2017 3:59 pm

I have been intermittently getting the following errors:


After some trial and error, I discovered that the problem seems to be with the length of the file name.

For example, "sn0597.mp3" (10 chars) downloads just fine. "thisisonlyatest-20170202.mp3" (28 chars) downloads fine. "pss231-mp3_2017-02-01-102425.64k.mp3" (36 chars) does not. "305782184-totalbiscuit-podcast0202.mp3" (38 chars) does not.

I am storing the downloads on the SD card. I tried setting the download path to internal memory, but it still got the error.

Does Podkicker have a 32 character limit? Perhaps a limit including the path? Android should allow 256 characters for the file name and 4096 for the path, but podkicker may be more restrictive.

I really like Podkicker, but this has begun affecting about half of what I listen to.

Thank you aor any help you can provide.
