    Flash Upload or something other than java?


    I would love to be able to upload files without the need of Java. Maybe a flash solution?

    I don't have Java on this computer, though I might be behind the times, I never found a need for it, until now.

    Also if this was suggested before, sorry for being redundant.

    Is it possible for you to use a "real" FTP client? Personally I use Cyberduck, for Windows, the first thing that showed up in a search was Filezilla. Finally, here is some info about setting up the programs.

    Freesound2 will have http/flash uploads. Actually, the FTP upload is going away because it's really troublesome to run it on the server.

    In the flash upload it allows you to select multiple files to upload at the same time, so it's just as good as the FTP upload. smile

    I hope that the http upload will allow zip/7z uploads. Flash still causes nearly all the problems I ever have when browsing the web smile - For example using Flickr's flash upload freezes the browser.

    There's HTML5 Drag and Drop Multiple File Upload but I get the impression it's still not in the present...

    within a few weeks we'll open up the alpha version of fs2 and you'll be able to try it yourself.
    I successfully uploaded large batches of files with the flash uploader, but, well, we all know flash is a bit.... annoying sometimes weird

    Upload of zip/7z I haven't thought about but perhaps it's a good idea, we should def add it to the list of advanced features we want!

    Zip upload.

    Upside - Exellent idea for saving upload time and bandwidth.

    Downside - Too many zipping options/standards/"internal directory structures". Might need serverside unpacking, sorting and, for packs, re-zipping to a common fs standard. I say this because I've sometimes tried to unzip *.zips only to find the original zipper somehow managed to accidentally(?) include the entire directory structure of their computer. When I used to run win95 (and even in win9cool zips often contained "illegal" characters/strings/pathlengths which boogered my OS or left me with files on my hard drive that could not be accessed or easily deleted!

    (Win95? Yeah, I'm not completely stoneage though: I did move to win98, and then this year, to Vista, but I sometimes think I gained more new irritations than advantages at each ever-more-obese "upgrade".)

    Heaven in the sky is to die for, Heaven on earth is to live for.
