Hello, I am having an issue when I try to compress a video in Android API 33, this is the logcat:

I am using a video saved in standar video directory from Android Emulator, uri: /storage/emulated/0/Movies/VID_20220830_180410.mp4, and in this part of the library code:

private fun getMediaPath(context: Context, uri: Uri): String {

        val resolver = context.contentResolver
        val projection = arrayOf(MediaStore.Video.Media.DATA)
        var cursor: Cursor? = null
        try {
            cursor = resolver.query(uri, projection, null, null, null)
            return if (cursor != null) {
                val columnIndex = cursor.getColumnIndexOrThrow(MediaStore.Video.Media.DATA)
                cursor.moveToFirst()
                cursor.getString(columnIndex)

            } else ""

        } catch (e: Exception) {
            resolver.let {
                val filePath = (context.applicationInfo.dataDir + File.separator
                        + System.currentTimeMillis())
                val file = File(filePath)

                resolver.openInputStream(uri)?.use { inputStream ->
                    FileOutputStream(file).use { outputStream ->
                        val buf = ByteArray(4096)
                        var len: Int
                        while (inputStream.read(buf).also { len = it } > 0) outputStream.write(
                            buf,
                            0,
                            len
                        )
                    }
                }
                return file.absolutePath
            }
        } finally {
            cursor?.close()
        }
    }

When this part of the code is executing:

cursor = resolver.query(uri, projection, null, null, null)
            return if (cursor != null) {
                val columnIndex = cursor.getColumnIndexOrThrow(MediaStore.Video.Media.DATA)
                cursor.moveToFirst()
                cursor.getString(columnIndex)

            } else ""

cursor is always null, so it will return always “” and for this reason I am experimenting this error.

Any help?

I am watching that the problem is only happening in APi > 30 for this code:

if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= 30) {
                if (!storageConfiguration.isExternal) {
                    return saveVideoInInternal(context, videoFileName, videoFile)
                } else {
                    return saveVideoInExternal(context, videoFileName, folderName, videoFile)
                }
            }

videoFile is always empty because of the cursor in the code above is null.

Any solution?

a workaround can be compressing the file into the app’s internal directory then use something like gallery_saver package to save the file in the external storage

Hi @EbelloImbox thank you for openning the issue and apolgies for the late reply. Was very busy the past 10 months.

This issue is happening due to permission issues as Google has been changing the behaviours a lot when it comes to privacy and media access.

I will release a new version later today with updated README. A new permission should be requested now for API >= 33;
