CBR/CBZ files

Postby mikehadfield » Tue Aug 20, 2013 9:41 pm

I am a newbie here, and have got ownCloud working ok, with access via the Android client. The only problem I am having is that I am having trouble with the client downloading files of the type CBR and CBZ.

These are Comic Book files (RAR or ZIP based archives). On the android device there is a ComicBook reader app, along with PDF reader.

When I click on a CBR or CBZ file in the cloud to download, it downloads it (says the filetype is OCTET-STREAM) and then at the end it says something like "Open with....No apps can perform this action".

Also PDF files download but everytime It pops up a box asking what program to use to open the PDF file and I have to choose PDF reader each time.

The strange thing is that the same files hosted on GoogleDrive download and open in their respective readers without any problem. So I think the issue must be in either the ownCloud server, the ownCloud Android app - or both.

Can anyone help with getting this sorted?

Haven't played around too much with different files in the ownCloud android app. Maybe there is no proper linking between the file extension and the app on a system level, but the sky drive somehow does it itself?
Or the OC android app just doesn't consider all mappings? Not sure how that works internally.

Best ask over on https://github.com/owncloud/android/issues
