It seems anything after a hash gets trimmed and I am then unable to get the
data that is normally stored in psz_location. If the trim process stores it
elsewhere I can access, I could work it like that.

Why long, and not off_t ?
Just an artifact of being new to vlc codebase and C. The data coming from
android is a long, so I mentally kept it the same here. Let me know if this
is something that is worth changing.

Please do not change the coding style
Are you referring to the longs or something else?

Why not strdup?
I simply was not familiar with this other C string function. It does look
more appropriate. I'll change it to use strdup instead of strcpy and malloc.
