Since release of Adobe Flash 10 Joomla flash uploader (for files and images) has stop working.
Since joomla ver. 1.5.8 it is possible (trough main configuration) to disable such flash uploader and the standard form is displayed.

Existing extension like JAM (Joomla Advanced Message) were based on joomla flash uploader and now is impossible to use it.

Where can I start from to make existing extensions working with standard upload form?

Unfortunately, this option is valid for Joomla core components but not automatically valid for third-party extensions such as JAM witch implements some custom code to call upload field from Joomla libraries.

For example, in my case, JAM import all mootools staff needed to create the upload field alngoside with some custom JS code to call FancyUploader (attached to this comment).

I'd need to Know some guidelines to convert this fancyuploader with standard upload form.
var uploader;
function JAMAttachments(){
	if(!jam_attachmentslimit){
		return false;
	}
	
	uploader=new FancyUpload(
		$('JAMAttachment'),
		{
			url:document.adminForm.attachmenturl.value,
			swf:'/media/system/swf/uploader.swf',
			queueList:'upload-queue',
			container:$('upload-swf'),
			limitSize:jam_attachmentsizelimit,
			limitFiles:jam_attachmentslimit,
			onAllComplete:function(){
				document.adminForm.attr.value='1';
				JAM.Ajax()
			}
		});
		
		$('upload-clear').adopt(new Element('input',{type:'button',events:{click:uploader.clearList.bind(uploader,[false])},value:jam_clearcompleted}));
}
		
function JAMNewAttachments(show){
	var attachments=$('attachments');
	if(!attachments){
		return;
	}
	if(show){
		attachments.setStyle('display','block');
	}else{
		attachments.setStyle('display','none');
		uploader.clearList(true);
	}
}
