    Uploading peculiarities


    I am about to try and FTP client because lately, I have been encountering this scenario. Any file over I'd say 15mb doesn't seem to be able to upload unattended. I can upload 30 short snippets at a time and walk away and come back 4 days later, just kidding, and they are all there error free.

    However, when I throw in a 10 minute recording of birds having intercourse or paint drying, the file transfer is stopped on the malcontent file and I have to hit cancel, restart FTP applet, etc... pain in the ass I must say. It does not continue through the sequence of files as usual, it just hangs there. Sometimes it stops altogether at some unrelated portion say 56% and hangs forever but that only happens a time or two per batch. I upload 30 or more at a time usually and it's problematic

    Anyone else experiencing this or have a work around? I spent all last night uploading 5 or 6 files and started again this morning, at this rate my christmas stuff should be ready for st patricks day.

    Thanks for the great site by the way and merry christmas to all, unless it offends you, for those folks I'll add a happy friggin new year in as well.

    hey nc,

    are you using the ftp applet, or an ftp client?
    if the former (the applet), could you try a standalone client like filezilla (windows) or cyberduck (mac)?

    Been using the applet.

    Trying filezilla right now... so far so good, 62% and counting... much easier, never using applet again, thanks again!
