TC + OneDrive plugin on Android 11, can't open files directly

Post by *pku888 »

Hello guys,

I don't know if it's a common issue, so I thought I would ask.
It seems that since I updated my phone to Android 11 (Pixel 4), I can no longer open the files directly when connected to my OneDrive account with the OneDrive plugin.
When trying to open a file inside the OneDrive account, the transfer popup appears for a second and then it disappears, without opening the file. I tried to clean the app/plugin data or reinstalling it, but it didn't help.
I can only open the file locally, after downloading it.

Did anyone else encounter this problem?

How big is the chance that many users already have Android 11
Its released just a few days.

At the moment, I cannot debug on Android 11 at all:
1. Pixel devices are not sold by Google in my country (Switzerland)
2. On my main development PC, the Android emulator crashes immediately with the Android 11 image, it uses processor commands which my old Core i5 doesn't support yet.
3. On a second PC, the emulator runs, but adb cannot connect to it (unautorized). The authorization dialog appears for about 1/10 second and immediately disappears before I can click on it.

Can you describe what you mean with "open the files directly"?
- streaming audio or video?
- "download and edit" or "download and open"?
- select files and click on "Copy" button?

Hello, thank you for you reply.

By "opening the files directly" I mean opening them while being logged to my OneDrive account with the plugin. I haven't tried streaming the videos. Streaming songs works with the "Play" option.
But I mostly open/edit the text files I have on my OneDrive account to take the notes and view them or to view the pics. Unfortunately neither option works, I tired both: "download and edit" or "download and open" but I only get a popup which lasts just a moment and then it disappears without showing the actual file.

Copy option works just fine, but it's a little slow to download the file from the cloud, edit it from the phone storage and upload it back to the OneDrive.

It seems to be related to this restriction:
https://www.ghisler.ch/board/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=72778

Total Commander downloads temporary files to its private directory:
/storage/emulated/0/Android/data/com.ghisler.android.TotalCommander
to a subfolder temp. Unfortunately apps cannot see each other's TEMP folder any more, so the plugin cannot download the file there.

I will have to find a different solution.
