Bug with Adobe Flash on Mac when uploading files to a redirected URL
Just spent almost the entire day trying to figure out what I was doing wrong when trying out many different flash multi-file uploading widgets. All of them would give me a 302 redirect http error, even when testing locally.
So after much searching and reading and studying… and finally testing this on my Windows machine (which works fine); I’ve decided this is a bug in Flash 9 for Mac.
There’s not a problem when it’s uploaded to a script directly which returns a 200 OK header response first. But when you use a framework that uses mod_rewrite for every URL, it’s not easy to get around that.
If anyone else has had experience with this I’d love to hear from you. Very frustrating! Maybe it’s fixed in the Flash 10 beta? Maybe it’s not a bug; it’s a “feature”, right?
UPDATE: I went ahead and installed Flash10 hoping for the best, but with no luck. I was able to contact someone at Adobe who told me the Flash scripts will have to be recompiled in Flash10 to see if Flash10 would help. So installing Flash10 on my computer won’t make the scripts any different.
