in android, it is not possible to get the absolute path when using the
default file manager (SAF). the returned Uri is an abstraction that
you cannot put it inside your pipeline. there is no way to create
files using the normal File api, hence there is no way you can get the
path to insert it inside the filesink.

some details on the path issues can be found here:

is there a plan to support android uri in the filesink location
