New photo uploader broken Answered

The new flash uploader is broken. I can still select it, but it presents with no upload or browse button, so I have to use the old one. it's lightning fast today, but still annoying to have to individually select the pictures. This error comes up consistently since late last night in chromium.

Thanks for the bug report, Adrian. Can you tell me which UI you were using (creating an Instructable? Asking a Question?) and what browser and operating system you're on?

Thanks for bearing with us; the uploader we use is still in beta (SWFUpload), but they're fixing bugs as we go along. In fact, they just released a new version today that we'll be uploading to the site tomorrow: http://swfupload.org/forum/news/1195

Hi nagutron, Yes, I went to "my library" from my homepage to upload photos. I was using Chromium running under Vista. Sweetness! The site just gets more awesome! If everything went perfect, it'd be a boring world... ;)

Oh, sadly we don't support Chromium everywhere in the site, yet. The uploader is based on a Flash plugin, and it doesn't support Chromium. Hopefully it will, in the future. I think there are a number of flash bugs in Chromium, too.

The old one also seems to be broken suddenly. Files now just hang there and never get done uploading.
