sfSWFUpload Plugin for Symfony

sfSWFUpload Plugin for Symfony

I published my first symfony plugin in symfony plugin trac.
This plugin offers helpers that permit simple use and configuration of SWFUpload.

SwfUpload is a combination of JavaScript and Flash that provides advanced browser upload control.

SWFUpload Features:
* Multiple File Selection
* File Upload Progress
* Custom Limits for File Size and Number of Uploads
* Filter by File Type ie. *.jpg
* File Queue
* Customize the Browse Control
* Degrades Gracefully

More info over SWFUpload:

You can use this plugin with included upload action: SWFUpload/upload (very simple example )
or you can develop your own upload action.

sfThumbnailPlugin is required from included sfSWFUpload/upload action.

Download and installation instructions are here: http://trac.symfony-project.com/wiki/sfSWFUploadPlugin

This plugin was tested against Symfony version 1.0.7 - 1.0.16

If you have any questions or feedback feel free to contact me at maurocasula at gmail.com.

Best Regards.

    For last two days, I’m trying to run sfSWFUploadPlugin 1.0.3 with no success as long.
    I was even tried to install fresh (sandbox) version of 1.0.13 version - sfThumbnail with same lack of success.
    All I have is first such message:

    SWFUpload is loading. Please wait a moment…

    And after few seconds:

    SWFUpload is taking a long time to load or the load has failed. Please make sure JavaScript is enabled and that a working version of the Adobe Flash Player is installed.

    And thats it.

    I found some info in js files, but I’m not familiar with JS. My Adobe Flash Player is v:, JavaScript is enabled.

    Please help :D
