I'm also investigating swfupload.
once again, congratulations and thanks for all your (shared) work =D>
is anyone handling 'batch' upload of files?
I have stopped (postponed) Ext.ux.SWFUpload development for reasons explained here.
I've got an idea: Flash uploader is unstable but it can popup file selector with file types filter, multiple file selection and can read file sizes.
If I had flash that would only:
I could then upload the delivered files with standard <input type="file">. This way I could achieve both comfort of a flash uploader and the stability of the standard method.
- take file types filter
- popup file selection dialog (a browse method)
- deliver full paths and sizes of user selected files
Progress could still be done by background ajax server calls.
[EDIT] JeffHowden pointed out that file inputs are read-only so this cannot be done. See next post.
It would be a giant safety leak in my opinion.
Jozef, does this example also crashes your Linux FireFox?
