Upload connection speed test
Posted on 2003-03-13
We're building a connection speed tester in flash. This downloads an mp3 file as a sound() object (streaming), and calculates the download time and connection speed upon completion. This bit works like a charm.
We now want to calculate the upload speed as well, by somehow sending the already downloaded mp3 file (sound object) back to the server. We can do whatever we like with permissions and we have ColdFusion to handle the server side of things. What we don't have, however, is any idea how to send the object back to the server.
We tried posting it with a getUrl, but as this throws everything into a string, we didn't really upload the sound object, but rather the string "object Object".
