This is a good module but it does not accept any video file format i have tried many but none worked!
Only documents, images, zip.etc

SimpleUpload for default accept extensions.
Your problem is php, in php.ini exists the limitation to lenght of upload.

upload_max_filesize = here lenght in M

Other directive also.

This module is just great, nice and simple.
I got the http 500 error as well after uploading.
To get rid of it add:
$app = & JFactory::getApplication();
to the function fileUpload
and replace $msg = $mainframe->enqueueMessage... with $app->enqueueMessage

Thanks for this nice module

Very clean, single file upload. It throws an HTTP 500 error on my site, I suspect because I'm using SEF and apache .htaccess, but don't know for certain. It still completes the upload though.

Simple and elegant module that allows a user to upload a file to a specific directory. Can limit who is allowed to upload by user name (separate by commas seems to work). I used this to allow an admin to upload newsletters to her site so she didn't have to understand FTP.

This module is great, my only problem is: I like every day the same file upload, but there is no possibility to overwrite the existing one.

Install and the set up were really easy, but, as a suggestion, it would be nice to have a progress bar so you know that you are doing something.
Also, i tried to change the parameters (file size) from the module manager and didn't do anything, i finally edited the php file and worked fine.
Just a few upgrades more and it will be perfect!

Hi turron!
Thank you for your feedback.

I try serious options of progress bar and dont like none.

Now the error messages has improved and upload directory is absolute, not more in Joomla directory.
