Access downloaded podcasts on SD Card (they are not shown and AP crashes when sharing)?

App version: 3.0.2 (F-Droid)

Android version: 11 (lineage)

Device model: Fairphone 2

Expected behaviour: I have downloaded some episodes of a podcast which are no longer available online, and I want to access them. They are stored on a sdcard. Unfortunately, I cannot see the files in the file browser (I get to Android/data, but the folder de.danoeh.antennapod is a 0 byte bin file), and if I try to share the media file from AntennaPod, it crashes.

Current behaviour: I cannot access the media files.

First occurred: I just tried this.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Set the storage to the sdcard
  2. Download a file
  3. Try to find it in the file browser or to share it from AntennaPod

Hi @brab,

If AntennaPod crashes when you try to share them, can you go to Settings » Report a bug, copy the crash report & share it with us here? It sounds like Share Media File crashes the app · Issue #6106 · AntennaPod/AntennaPod · GitHub

What happens if you try to play those episodes - does that work?

The bug is clearly the same (same stack trace), thank you for the link. I posted my information there. In a nutshell:

  • files in sd-card play fine, they cannot be reached by the file browser nor shared
  • files in internal storage also play fine, the can both be reached by the file browser and shared

Here is a copy of the backtrace.

As a workaround, does changing the location of the stored files in the preferences move the existing ones? If so, I should be able to access them from internal storage…
