    About the uploader


    I love the idea of this site, but to be honest, the uploader makes it a painful process to add sounds. It's far from intuitive and easy, and adding multiple sounds at once is a painful process. The uploader itself if also quite buggy, I get a lot of errors there. I'd love to upload all my homemade stuff, but I find the uploader so repulsive that I end up not uploading anything anymore. I'm guessing I'm also not the only one.

    Is there something better in the making, or am I doing something wrong?

    There are two versions of the upload page...

    One uses flash ... http://www.freesound.org/home/upload/

    the other doesn't ... http://www.freesound.org/home/upload/html/

    one may be less "buggy" than the other.

    [the non-flash page doesn't have a progress bar showing how much of the file has been loaded]

    I noticed that, but the problem with the non-flash uploader is that there's no multiple file uploading. The most frustrating thing about the upload though is adding separate info for all the files afterwards. For example if I upload 50 very similar sound fx, I have to copy and paste the same tags and descriptions to each one of them.
