Give a warning when file paths are too long

Post by blabibo » Sat Apr 03, 2021 11:03 am

I was re-encoding some Flac files and noticed that if the file path is too long (because the artist names and/or the track titles are too long), the files are not created, which was a problem for me because I had also selected "Delete source files after conversion", so those files were lost (fortunately in this case I can re-download them from the web store).

It would be nice to have a warning that some file paths are too long when we hit the Convert button. Or alternatively that EZCD would skip those files, leave the original files untouched, and give us an explanation message in the conversion window.
