It gets worse! This from the SWF uploader site:
The response from Adobe on the Adobe Forms is that a security change
in Flash Player 10 prevents indirect calls display to File Dialogs.
Dialog in Flash. Which means SWFUpload is permanently broken for Flash
We have 4 options:
1. Hope Adobe will have mercy and roll back this change and save
2. SWFUpload support ends at Flash Player 9 and is not moved to Flash
Player 10 (in other words, the project dies in 6 months to a year
after the release of Flash Player 10).
3. Change the SWFUpload whole design philosophy dropping the
starts/stops/cancels uploads) and forcing a Flash Movie UI on our users.
4. Try to implement a kind of mix of Flash UI and HTML UI and
complicate things by making the Flash UI configurable enough to match
the HTML UI.
Unless Adobe is going to take their FileReference APIs serious and fix
the bugs that are plaguing us (mod_security issues, data return
issues, IO Error issues, Linux compatibility, etc) then I don't see a
very bright future for any Flash based upload component. Is it worth
