I spent hours to find out a uploader to upload large files and display progress bar . finally I found SWFupload. I am using it in my form (index.php) . the only problem is its mandatory to upload a file whereas it should be optional for my users to upload files.

right now if they do not select a file to upload form is not submitting. I know I need to play with handlers.js but what and where . I only want to submit form simply and lets do upload.php its work .. i do not need any validation (javascript) . I have very few knowledge of javascript. I just want to submit the form in simple stright manner that should access code of upload.php and upload-videos-proccess.php .. there is no room for javascript validations . how i remove it ? once i delete whole handlers.js code it does not work too ..

Please rename files
index.php.txt into index.php
upload-videos-proccess.php.txt to upload-videos-proccess.php
upload.php.txt to upload.php
default.css.txt to default.css
swfupload.js.txt to swfupload.js
swfuploadbutton.swf.txt to swfuploadbutton.swf
swfupload.swf.txt to swfupload.swf
js/fileprogress.js.txt to js/fileprogress.js
js/handlers.js.txt to js/handlers.js
SWFUpload.zip

why are you using using the same method to send data to a server if you are NOT sending a file?

I would setup two methods, and only call the one, when the user has selected that option...
