Yes, shorter/normal file names will be useful.
Actually in my case only ~50 of ~200 files could be downloaded the other 150 say "invalid downloadpath" and i have to re-do the 150 files by re-naming by hand.

I think the file naming structure for the plugin now (PostID - PicNum - Information) is excellent as it is post specific except in one part, it gets the 3rd part of the name from the description which could be very long (most of the cases) and will case this problem in addition that it also could include special characters causing another problem to open the file in some software.

If it gets this part from the post Title there will be no more long file names as the title is already limited by tumblr itself and will never have any special characters.

I played around and created a Regex rule (my 1st so don't shoot me if it is wrong) to auto replace the 3rd part of the name with the title to avoid the need to manually rename every file in the list, maybe it will be useful for others until the plugin is fixed, the only problem with this rule so far that I can't remove the (-) between words.....

@raztoki
Is it possible to change the plugin this way?

Can you please provide some more example links where too long filenames happen?

Angry JDownloader drastically changed behaviour after update and is now unusable

I have been using JDownloader with enthusiasm and delight for the past year but recent changes have made it unsuable.

First problem: I download almost exclusively from Tumblr, and the file naming has changed. Previously, for instance all images where named tumblr_NNNNNN.jpg but now they have a much longer and more descriptive name. Having a better name is nice but now more than half the files have "too long" names resulting in a "Invalid Download Directory" error due to the filename being too long. There is no option to limit the length of a filename and renaming manually thousand of files one-by-one is impractical.

Second problem: The definition of a package used to be one link. Now when I copy a link in the clipboard, it does generate an unmanageable amount of sub-folders. I have played around with the Packagizer to try to fix that with no success.

Example: copy to clipboard "cutest-cats.tumblr.com"
Before: **External links are only visible to Support Staff****External links are only visible to Support Staff**
Now: **External links are only visible to Support Staff****External links are only visible to Support Staff**

Third problem:
To prevent the problem mentioned just above and collated all the images in one folder, it is possible to use "Add New Links" and set the packagename field manually instead of going thru the clipboard. However this solution is not satisfactory either. First because it renders the clipboard useless, Second because it restricts you to add links manually one-by-one and properly setting the package name. Also even if I can manage to package one link in one folder manually, I end up with the First problem being that filenames are too long.

I hope that there's a configuration setting that will make it back to previous behaviour otherwise I will be reduce to either find a different software to download from Tumblr or I will have to download and compile the software from the source code and revert to previous changes before the problem occur.

Regards,
A once happy user that is now frustrated

I also think the file naming structure for the Tumblr plugin actually is great (PostID - PicNum - Information) with the only exception, that the filename or the 'Information' Tag must be limited to eg 80 characters.

Besides this, the plugin works great - Thanks for the work :-)

Default Filename length limit mandatory

A filename length limit is not a Nice-to-have, it is an absolute prerequisite. otherwise the plugin is unusable.

A typical tumblr gallery has over 50% of posts with too long filename. I have sincerily stopped using JDownloader at the moment cuz it is simply unusable and a waste of my time to rename all the failing download due to too long filename.

Personally, i prefer the old naming convention which was ending with a picture quality (size) number and I could automatically filter lower quality pictures (JDownloader downloads all the different quality pictures and you end up with duplicates of different resolution).

Sincerely, I just wish i could have see this coming and I would have turned off the auto-update.

I think we will revert to old naming scheme as default and allowing to customize scheme in plugin settings.

Default Avoiding change of behavior

I agree that is the best strategy. Being a software engineer myself, I can recall several times we made a decision to change a default behavior and customers were pretty unhappy of it.

New options should always remain as-is, new options. Unless it is fixing a bug... "if ain't broken don't fix it".

I have updated and I think it's a little bit better now (filenames seem shorter) but still a bit too long. I'd say that a lower percentage of filename has to be renamed but still...

I'd personally prefer to go back to old naming scheme (tumblr_ABCDEF..._RES.jpg) or at very least a setting to fix the maximum filename length.

Meanwhile, this software is still unusable (I can't seriously be renaming thousand files manually without loosing my sanity). Waiting for a fix to resume using JDownloader.

Or maybe a Dynamic Variable containing the source file name (ie.: tumblr_abcdef....ext) as opposed to the new name (12345 - id - desc.ext) could be added and I could use this in the Packagizer.

@shadorlsy
Cool down ;-)

Jiaz wrote, that they want to do a "real" Plugin with optional settings for the naming scheme. So everbody should his own prefered type of naming.

But on
https://svn.jdownloader.org/issues/77628

Default Sorry to here that

Default Bug: Please allow to trim Filenames to a max length

Good evening

if we dowanload all found Images from
**External links are only visible to Support Staff****External links are only visible to Support Staff**

then JDownloader has problems with such annoying Packet / File-Names:
"I know I’m late but still posting thisSsssHarry’s hair looks sooooo fine����NIALLS CHEST HAIR��LOUIS EYES MAKES ME MELT ❤️❤️DANG DADDY LIAMS MUSCLES��Please give credits by liking_reblogging And request are free!"
Yes, this really is a package name... and will create an invalid directory & file-name.

Could you please add a config setting where whe can define the max len for Packages & File-Names?
Everything longer than this value will be truncated (but the filename-extension will be kept, of course )

Thanks a lot,
kind regards,
Tom
