Known Issues:
This plugin is designed to work on PHP 5.3+. If you have an earler version of PHP, you may encounter issues with detecting the MIME type of the uploaded file. This depends on your server setup, as it should work fine if PHP is allowed to call the exec function. Please visit the support site for advice on compatibility with earlier versions of PHP.

I have tried making the same plug-in using SWFUpload, spent a couple of weeks and made it for Joomla 1.5.

This time I need it for Joomla 1.7 and I found it here. Though it is listed as commercial but in other words free extension comes with mandatory offering of cup-of-coffee.

I really appreciate the developers effort. Keep it up.

We have a page for members to freely share their vacation images and movie clips. For this page we used Easy File Uploader, a handy free extension usable as both a module and plugin. Now that we have switched to Easy Flash Uploader we find the status bar feature and upload speeds hands down fantastic! Not only is its look customizable but the process makes the upload experience (queues, multiple instances per page, etc) slightly addictive.

Keep up the good work!
