Topic: Silverlight/Chunking - slower uploads?
I am working on a project to allow for up to 5gb uploads. From research I have found that the two best options at this time are Java, or Silverlight. I tried to implement the Java runtime by JakobAdam but was unable to get it working correctly. I would LOVE it if plupload would come standard with a Java option. I read in these forums that you guys have been thinking about it for over a year now. Any news?
Anyway, I am now working with my second choice: silverlight. I found that I was unable to upload anything past about 2gb unless I used chunking. Does this make sense from a plupload developers perspective? I read that it is supposed to make all the difference when using flash, but should this also apply to Silverlight? I would prefer to not use chunking if possible. It makes the process just one step more complicated, and appears to be slowing uploads. The upload speed sort-of comes and goes in consistent bursts. I assume that is because of the additional tasks it performs between each chunk.
So my questions are:
1. Should silverlight require chunking for large files (2gb+)?
2. When will we see Java in plupload!?
Thanks for your wonderful work,
