I would suggest making this a user selectable option, something like:
[ ] Overwrite or [ ] Rename files with same name in gallery when downloading
You can find below the relevant page for Java version 6:http://java.sun.com/javase/6/webnotes/install/system-configurations.html
As you can see, the supported Windows versions are 7/XP/Vista/2000/2003/2008.
If I would have a Win 98, I would give it a try, but I think I wouldn't go back to Win95.
I hope it helps.
I've just uploaded the 3rd beta of SmugLoader-0.5.
Just in time! I just got home and am very sleepy. Will set up an upload session using beta 3 and then go to sleep.
Keep me posted, please.
I used 30 upload streams and it uploaded everything except two files. I used the standard SM uploader web uploader to finish the upload, but somehow there's a duplicate file because one of the files that didn't transfer was a 800mb video that shouldn't transfer. The number of images in the gallery is one more than it should be.
1. Is the other file (smaller), that didn't transfer, the duplicated one? I ask you this because it could be one of the known issues I wrote about (Have you read the known issues section?).
2. Can you tell me what was the status of the smaller file?
3. If you used the SM uploader, did you select the check for duplicates option?
4. Have you tried to re-upload the failed one using SL?
I'm not sure why, but recently almost every time I set a batch to upload and then go to sleep, it fails and I have to restart it at some point. The status are 'confirmation', 'i/o error', and 'waiting'. There will be so many of these that they will use up every upload thread and then the uploads stop. This is more likely to happen on the 1000+ larger batches like I've been having lately.
Regarding the issues, I don't know what to say, but most likely the connection, or SmugMug server was the cause. The I/O error is usually because of that. The long confirmation period it could also be a slower response time of SmugMug, or of course your connection to the Internet wasn't the best at that time. Are you sure that your ISP isn't filtering the traffic?
I'm glad that the I/O error isn't something local like it couldn't read the file. That was making me panic a bit.
SE also has problems, so there may be issues with the ISP. But I tend to believe it is more likely my setup than the ISP since I am using a multi-wan router and three connections. For now I'll have to be happy that I can upload multi-wan for a while by just setting SL and letting it run until it stops. Then I'll have to switch to manually setting SM to finish the uploads. Better than what I was doing before.
I thought about it, and your HDD probably has no issues, since you were able to send the files, in the end.
I've just replaced the archive of the 3rd beta.
Yay my first dgrin question is complete newb one.
How do I use SmugLoader?
I've downloaded the zip file, unpacked it, but see no executable
Read through this thread and didn't see any instructions mentioned. And the link mentioned in the first post for more info doesn't workhttp://www.bulcu.ro/SmugLoader
Thanks, would love to use this because the web interface of SmugMug is driving me nuts while I try to organize multiple galleries.
Udy, it appears it would be a good idea to update your first post.
I generally have very long category names.
The longest category I currently have is:CRA Super Series, ASA Late Model Challenge, and Whelen Southern Modifieds at Music City Motorplex Nashville Tennesee March 31, 2007
I can make it shorter.
So when I open up Smugloader and click on the category dropdown, I lose access to the whole right side of the dialog box.
I understand some people use square 15" monitors, many do have widescreen laptops and this is the reason to have the dialog box centered and a certain width.
Would it be possible to add the ability to drag the right hand corner, making the dialog box wider.
Thanks for your time.
The Smugloader link brings me to a Google log in page for your site.
Thanks for your changes and addressing the category length issue.
This issue has gotten so bad, that SL doesn't really work for me anymore. :cry SE doesn't even work either, which leads me to believe something has changed on SM's side rather than with the ISP or the connection. Until something gets resolved, looks like I'm back to the SM uploaders. :cry
You should really ask SmugMug for an answer. It's really sad it's happening. I remember though that they stated in a thread that there should be no issues with massive uploads.
Then again, please drop them a question.
Since we are here, have you tried to lower the number of upload threads? It is always better to have even twice, or four times the speed, isn't it?
