We have been working on a new HTML5 version of the uploader, and it is now available in beta if you'd like to try it out: http://archive.org/create/ (look for the Beta Uploader button).

The new uploader is capable of uploading much larger files than the old one, and you can add a wider variety of metadata if you need it. Please note that the beta uploader does NOT work in Internet Explorer due to the limitations of that browser. We recommend Chrome or Firefox for the best experience.

If you have comments on the beta uploader, please reply in this forum thread.

Thanks!

Alexis - IA

I must say that the minimum capability would be ftp with memorized location of uploaded file, as in torrents, to enable different sessions but still have the possibility to upload large files. The fact that the server whenever a mistake shall be present will delete the uploaded data means that those who have programmed it where thinking about not enabling this function; according to quality files; to be present; preferring smaller ones. Quantity instead of quality. Nevertheless, web site is great, although upload page should show speed, amount of data, should carry out a multiple synchronous upload, let's say 12 fluxes at the same time; and should remember what is does to continue the job in the next sessions. Feel free to work for betterment, and enjoy synergy rather that disergy.

This uploader is terrible.

1. It should support resuming upload from last successfully received byte. (Can you imagine after 2 hours uploading and it finally reports network error for a 4GB file and then restarts uploading from byte 0 again?)

2. It should calculate checksum and verify checksum like for every 100MB chunk during uploading. Verifying checksum only at the end of uploading is a terrible idea since the file could be very large and error could happen in early stage during uploading.If mismatch is found, it should immediately stop and reupload this 100MB chunk instead of reuploading from the very beginning of the file.

The Beta Uploader seems excruciatingly slow, it's highly unstable as you have to babysit it to click the "resume uploading" button every few minutes, where it starts from scratch on the file it was uploading, and there's no real alternative.
I have a 500 megabit fiber connection, and all my boxes are hardwired. No pesky WiFi. Common upload speeds for this beta uploader are around 30-50 megabits. That's 10% of my available bandwidth. It also had frequent crashes where I had to resume.
I thought maybe it was an issue on my side. Maybe I'm dropping packets. All the tests I was able to run don't indicate that, but I never ran them for very long. So for the sake of keeping an open mind I tried using a VPN with TCP enabled to help with error correction. What I found when doing that astonished me. That was the best experience I had with the beta uploader EVER. I was very consistently seeing 100-200 megabits up with peaks around 450, and no need to babysit it. It just worked. But it would only work in Firefox, and it appeared Firefox would load the files in RAM. This doesn't happen in Chrome, in fact there was little to no change using a VPN with Chrome.
That worked for a couple weeks, not sure if it was a Firefox update lately or if it was IA's side, but that trick doesn't seem to work anymore. Back to the same old slow buggy mess. I know the beta uploader CAN work reliably. I've seen it. It just isn't working reliably, and I don't know why.

I'm still trying to keep an open mind about it. Should I avoid using the uploader in this way? I presume it is correct, I'm just following the links from the homepage.
It says in the stickied post that it works with Chrome and Firefox, since I've noticed different performance between the two is there a preferred browser we should be using to avoid the issues I've described? If so, is there a specific version we should use? And under ideal conditions with no limit on the client's bandwidth, what speeds should we expect uploading to IA? I understand it will fluctuate with load, but what range can we expect? Because 50 megabits seems awful slow, and like I said, I've seen it go far faster.
Also, since we no longer have the option of using the old uploader that worked properly, if we are having issues with this uploader is there an alternate way of uploading that is not in the beta stage of development? Please don't suggest the CLI uploader, not only do most people not (care to) know how to use that, it also has documented issues with urllib3 used that prevent it from working reliably as well. The only other option I see is Bittorrent, and that is even slower than the beta uploader, even if you don't have to babysit it. Is the alternative sneakernet? Is there a mailing address where we need to start mailing hard drives? That's hardly cost effective for anyone involved.

If we do assume it is the uploader that is at fault and not the users, is there a way to track the progress of the beta uploader? An official Git repo possibly? I looked through the Internet Archive Github repos, didn't see anything that overtly seemed to be it in there. And is there roadmap for the beta uploader where we can see when it is expected that the primary way to upload content to IA will exit beta status and be stable and fully functional?

If these are documented issues with the uploader, what is the bottleneck on getting these resolved? How can the community help with this particular issue? Is it funding? Manpower? If people know about the need and are kept up to date, they may be more inclined to step up to meet that need.

If you need screenshots, log files, pcap files, etc. I can help as much as I can. I (and I'm sure many many others) would very much like for the only obvious way to upload files to no longer be in beta.

Well my fellow Mac fan, I guess I solved my problem. My advice to you is to check the metadata on your HTML files. & compare it to/with successful previous uploads of yours.
because, my issue, was that I was attempting to upload files that were older, & created with an older version of Garage Band. Like, the structure is the same, it's just a standard BSD Un*x dir with drwxr-xr-x@ (chmod 755). See tho xattr -l tells me that the one that uploaded now, has com.apple.lastuseddate#PS com.apple.metadata:_kMDItemUserTags: & com.apple.quarantine: 0082;00000000;GarageBand; attributes, & the one that I had to .zip up only had com.apple.FinderInfo: & com.apple.metadata:_kTimeMachineOldestSnapshot:
I really dunno if that made the difference, but when I opened the older file in my newest GB.app & re-saved it, low & behold, it was IA compatible (& had a lovely preview graphic of the DAW state when I saved/quit the app. it's now my IA file preview pic. go fig right?)
Good luck.

Yeah, I'm having weird "Beta Uploader" issues too. I used to upload Garage Band files no problamo. Even made a nicely rendered DAW display graphic for them. But now, I'm being told to not upload zero byte files, such as directories (true, that really all a .band file is) BUT that Chrome CAN do that whereas Firefox cannot. But right now, NEiTHER will initiate upload when I click the final click ("Upload and Create Your Item").

I suppose I'll just zip up the file(s) & try again, but I know I won't be getting the awesome DAW rendered preview graphic. Oh well.

Consistently encountering "network error" while uploading anything bigger than a couple hundred+ megabytes if I don't babysit the upload page and manually click around on it while download is processing: it is a horrendously time consuming and painfully discouraging user experience.

I would pay real money for a desktop client to expedite process of uploading/downloading content. incidentally, I often end up using a download manager (jdownloader) just so I don't have sit on top of a download of larger files from the archive.

PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN.

We use URL links with pre-populated metadata for our volunteers to upload radio shows and currently the drag and drop function is not working. When we drop an audio file onto the grey box it just plays the file - or displays the image if we try that.

Clicking the "Choose files to upload" button is also not working. We can select the file to upload from the usual window but then nothing happens.

This is for Firefox and Chrome in Win 10

The usual upload button is working but I can't guarantee that my volunteers will put files in the right collection and I don't want to have to bother you to get them changed every time

The loader is okay, though a bit cumbersome. However, the biggest issue I have with it and nearly all of the upload-related interfaces IA provides is that it is never clearly stated that for IA's users the collection and mediatype (and identifier, though perhaps that's understandable) are immutable. So, if you make a mistake and either do not specify a collection or mediatype, or specify incorrect collection or mediatype, you can never change (i.e., correct) it! Any requests made in forums to IA admins to change either collection or mediatype for an item seem to fall to into the bit bucket.

I have a really basic question: When I drag in multiple PDF files to upload, I see the panel of metadata on the left has fields like title, description etc. that only applies to one of the documents -- but there's no way to select the various documents to give them each a unique title? It looks like I fill in the various fields and then it just applies them to all the documents in the window? I have say 24 magazines to upload where I want to use the same description and keywords ... do I just ignore the Title field and assume IA will provide the right URL based on the filename? Am I supposed to provide a generic title that applies to all 24 issues of the magazine (The Magazine Title?). How do I give the proper, different date for all 24? The displayed data seems to apply to just a single item in the batch.

in the library record world serial works are considered a single work if if there are many volumes or issues. but even then because the publication date, description etc may warrant separate items.

I haven't found such a function yet if it already exists. As long as the file is publicly shared via a URL and without login requirements, I suspect it should be fairly easy for the server to simply "download" the file. Thanks.

The beta uploader is the worst. I have tried for days to upload one file. I have tried sending it as one file and as a multi-part .zip and .rar. It crashes regardless. When using multi-part files, it allows you to resume after uploading portions, but if you ever get to what should be 100%, it keeps going and eventually crashes. You get results like 23GB/17GB. How is that even possible? This tool is broken, and needs to be fixed. I even tried the command-line tool, and it crashed at 1% of my upload with a page full of errors.

Since I was in Ubuntu trying the command-line tool, I decided to try uploading with browsers inside of Ubuntu. Firefox was super stable and seemed like it was going to work, but it got stuck in a continuous loop of uploading the same thing over and over. After that I tried uploading with Chrome inside of Ubuntu. That seems to be the ticket. I was able to upload a 15.3GB zip file on the first try with no problem. I hope this information helps the developers.

Works most of the time, but large files take so long, and with an upload going in the background in Firefox, uploads often fail unless you check the browser tab every 15 or so minutes.
Otherwise it works alright. This post was modified by mrpenguinb on 2021-01-16 02:03:51

Uploaded two folders the first of 20 files went quite quickly and additionally had the files available to experience in the archive.
The second folder containing 100 much larger files loaded with similar speed niether had any issue even as I performed other operations.

There is one request/question ... Is there anyway to provide a mobile upload capability?
I've tried and always recieved a
(low memory files couldn't be downloaded message)
Even though I've several gigs free memory.

With so many globally having only limited if any access to a desktop and many others on the move it would provide significant opportunity to increase the archives repository should one be provided a mobile to cloud capability.

A quick question:

I have one concrete request:

Would it be possible for the uploader to automatically derive the page URL from the page title?

This doesn't work at the moment.

Please see the attached screenshot for the current (weird) way of setting the page URL automatically.

Thankfully,

Uploaders do not want to wait while 660 tasks are progressed! We want to go to the metadata screen and tweak things.

I like the "Beta" uploader, because I can pre-set a number of metadata fields using a query string, which are always the same for me.
I wish it could set every field though -- it will not allow me to set the title, url, or license.
(yes I read how people said to set the license value, but it did not work for me)

However, one negative thing: when using the form (not the query string value), the uploader's selection of a "Collection" is irksome -- what you type is a "search", and you must select a returned value that comes back. So simply inputting a precise and correct collection is not accepted, the value will revert to the default, and there is no type of "warning" that this happened. This would not be that bad, except that once the item is created, there is no way to ever change the collection id! This post was modified by 3Cubed on 2020-06-08 18:24:48

Log in. Choose to upload file. Select file. Choose "Open"..

I have a lot of unique documents but I'm not buying a new computer to share them!
Yes I had scripts enabled - and as HTML5 has no specific uploader mechanism I assume you use scripts. But something in your code is not useable on older PCs.

I do not click on any button to say that I want to try the new (HTML5 based) uploader. The flow runs normally until a pop-up window says "Please wait while your page is bring created'. The uploader sits
at this point and never moves on to display the top-level page produced in a successful load.

I have been working for MANY hours trying to get my artwork formatted properly. Several hours yesterday and several today. I made a Creative Commons album of music by my favorite group (they allow uploads of audience recordings). I worked on the audio, and there isn't any problem with that, but the artwork images are distorted, if they display at all.
This is very frustrating because I take pride in my work and, naturally, I don't want to look like an idiot. Yesterday, I tried uploading each of four albums seperately. On the third album HAL 9000 refused to upload the other albums stating that it appeared to be spam.
Today, I'm having a similar issue, because I've had to upload and take down images that were repeates on the screen. Now, I can't upload anything. HAL just absolutely refuses to accept my attempts to sequence the images the way I want them.
At most, I should have had to spend an hour on this, rather than the nearly six hours I've already invested. To the point: I never know how an album or its image(s) will be displayed, for they vary in many odd combinations - although NONE the way I want it. It's really quite frustrating.
MIT runs this, I believe. It's a nice resource, but I shouldn't have to get a computer programming degree in order to make it work. I do know enough about programming to realize "abstraction" is a vital part of it. Abstraction means that the programmer takes care of all the coding and the user has an easy job of using the software. That sure isn't happening for me. :(

Thank you! Just glad to know the issue wasn't on my end. I've had few issues with the Beta Uploader, and it seems far easier to use for novices than trying to use an old FTP server thing.

Only thing I have noticed is that I *think* when I was first using it, it would automatically use an image uploaded beside of the graphical interface with the song titles AND become the Item Image for the page. The last two times I've had to go in and specifically set it to be the Item Image per the instructions in your FAQ. No biggie.

Thanks again! The ILMA is one of the best resources on the Internet.

Hello,
Please note that although my first video went up without a hitch, that the subsequent video stops uploading at different locations on firefox and epiphany browser.

Is there any way an alternative link to upload can be provided when the beta fails for us?

It tells me that it still cannot upload a pdf. Have to remove part of the extension just to get it to load the file,
But the real problem is when it pukes out, it goes into a loop and you have to exit the page, not knowing where to restart the download.

There seems to be a bug that cropped up in the uploader. Not sure how recent because I have not been using the online upload form for a long time.

I've noticed when I use preset metadata which contains the collection classicpcgames (which is software), it makes my item mediatype text. Which is not correct.

But if I manually choose the Classic PC Games collection on the form using the search box it correctly recognizes it as software.

Both of these routes upload the items to the correct collection.

The one thing that would help the most would be having an “x delete function “ at the end on the page title data. That way I could rename my item faster because I would only have a one step process to delete the old assigned name.

Every thing else works well.. thanks

I have 792 uploads (mostly *MY* video tape rips) so I think that I have it down.

I just uploaded a file just like normal and it was SLOW but it got there. I was putting on the finishing touches on the 2nd part of a tape, I went to the uploader, choose the file and it didn't go to the page where you put in all of the info.

I rebooted, waited for an hour to try again but no info page!

I don't think that I did anything wrong and there was no error messages.

I don't like uploading to archive.org. Many errors, also 400 Bad data, but not why. You can also not skip that file, the only thing you can do is press "Resume" or so, just to get the same error.

It's also not easy to upload files in a subdirectory. The only way looks like you have to drag and drop it with the same structure.

Been trying to get it all uploaded and managed to upload 75 files in a couple of hours.. But I also have to use this javascript to keep it running:
```
setInterval(function() {
if (document.querySelector('#progress_msg').textContent == 'There is a network problem') {
document.querySelector('#overlay_alert button').click();
console.log('RESUME!!!!!!!!!!');
}
}, 5000);

"There Is No Preview Available For This Item"

Reviewing the RSS feed of EN text items being uploaded over the last several weeks I have noticed that many uploads, which comprise only a pdf, do not present an open book view, e.g.

https://archive.org/details/1960InternationCourtOfJustice

That one has just been notified via RSS but I recall seeing several others where there was no preview shortly after RSS notification nor also several days later, seemingly thereby precluding the possibility of delayed derive jobs being the cause.

Or is this a browser related issue concerned with e.g. cookies management or other issues?

And for items so affected, is there a manual fix that can be applied where the problem encountered, by the uploader if not by the reader?

Could IA look into this please?

Love it. Couple things I noticed or need to ask is whether putting all the info that we used to put in an "Info_Text.txt" file now need to be put into the Description field in order to get it to automatically display?

Does this take the place of uploading that "Info_Text.txt" file?

Other thing is that after I set some files to upload I decided to delete them and add more metadata to the actual files, then rechoose to upload them, but when I did that, the SELECT FILES TO ADD button would not work. I ended up having to use Drag & Drop to put them into the upload list (which worked fine).

Thanks!

Love it (so far). Just uploaded my first show using it. Spafford 2019-02-12. Works much easier than the old manual method (I never used the JAVA version due to security issues with JAVA, which I don't have on my PC).

Only thing I would ask (not related to the new HTML5 uploader) is that maybe the derived tracks (OGG and VBR mp3) files, could somehow be named by track number and title instead of the actual uploaded filename. Maybe give people a choice?

Also, I think which LICENSE to choose (or none) is a bit confusing for new tapers. Which should we choose for these audience concert recordings?

Finally, in order to show a placeholder photo for the show instead of the Archive "museum building" do I have to upload a jpeg instead of png? Or was that because I chose "Creative Commons, Non-Commercial, no derived works" for the license.

Thank you! The HTML5 uploader is a godsend for those of us unwilling to use JAVA. Much thanks and appreciation to the developers. I'm sure any "bugs" with it will be ironed out and it will make uploading shows easier for everyone, even newbies.

Hello archive.org,

I tried uploading to a item page, and I was immediately sent without confirmation or file moving after upload. I believe that the old interface had everything user-friendly. Also, there were greyed out folders/files, which in I was not able to move files there.

The upload still works, but a bit of file management is now missing. What's going on? Is email contact required to move files? How can I use the old uploader again?

the fix is to not have any spaces in your file names. the old uploader automatically removed them. the current upload does not in order to retain files just aw they were uploaded. spaces need to be escaped to %20 in URLs so just avoid the spaces.

The uploading as such works somehow (much slower than before), I don't see the new features, but the real problem is that I can't delete files from my items anymore. I mean, I delete it, as usual, it disappears from the directory tree, but if I press "reload" it reappears. Also, I can still see it on the item page.

It's Chrome (and Mozilla), Win 8.1. Any suggestions?

Well quite frankly I don't like that it doesn't work and there's no alternative. You are forcing your userbase to use a piece of software that isn't ready for production. You've had this HTML 5 uploader for years, and ironically back then when I joined, the beta actually worked. That's what I used.

I don't know what you guys did, but you broke it, and in such a way that it produces the same problem with every browser I have. At the very least please give us the option to use production ready software that isn't wrought with showstopping bugs.

And how many of those "uploads" are junk data from an upload that didn't work? I know the one I did yesterday was. Here's a couple more from your filtered list, and it looks like there's lots more.

if you look at the history of your item at https://catalogd.archive.org/history/FLIGHTSIM95 you'll see a yellow stripe over the server. that indicates it is read only while undergoing some maintenance. it could have happened during your upload which is why it failed to upload all the files.

that condition has absolutely nothing to do with the uploader itself. it is a server issue.

as far as the items you mentioned, the uploader deleted the files from those. the actual upload was fine.
the flash uploader is not going to come back.

The terminal command rejects the "ia" exec file we have saved on our drive, which usually permits mass uploading.

When attempting to upload zips one at a time, the new Item Editor stalls and displays the message "Network error." These zips are not large, they SHOULD be able to go into IA without problems, as they have in the past. Help!

Have the option to “lock” files to disable downloads, viewing or otherwise use.

But the page hosting the file is still visible. This enables users to preserve copyrighted material by uploading them to the site that do no damage to copyright holders, and once it becomes public domain, a user finds the page hosting it request the material to be unlocked.

Things I'd like to know before trying it: Can I modify an uploaded file later, e.g., add a DosBox screenshot? Should I use the original ZIP archive with sources + binary, or split it into the binary (for the software archive DosBox emulator) + C sources (for enthusiasts)?

Not getting the filechooser dialog with Firefox 57. Same extension set as with Firefox 56 and all visible JS enabled in NoScript. At the same time, GNOME web worked so not an overall problem at Archive, and the filechooser dialog worked in the classic uploader. Unfortunately, classic uploader uploads never completed in FF 57

Bug FOUND: had to replace the image blocker (turned on and off as needed to stop bandwidth loss on repeated image reloads on other sites)-and "EasyImageBlocker" turned out to be incompatable with this website's uploader code even when set to allow images! Replaced it with "ImageBlockX" which does not interfere with this site's function when set to allow images to load and is easier to use as well.

All other extensions were simply "WebExtension" FF57 compatable versions of what I had used before, though many were new code. None of them created problems here, they were tested one at a time. Not going to enumerate them as I don't want to assist attackers

I like the Beta uploader and prefer the metadata format, but I have gotten a lot of 500 errors which have caused a lot of wasted time, and I have not been able to determine what the problem is. I've checked the forums a while back but did not find any answers. It doesn't happen every time but often enough that I hesitate to use it.

Otherwise the uploader works fine enough.

This uploader worked well for me, a non-Unix non-programmer on a Macbook Pro running El Capitan. I have 3 issues:
1) I agree it's cumbersome to have to re-enter metadata for each entry in a series.
2) If I make a typo, I don't see any way to correct it once the file's uploaded, except to add a review. My workaround was to upload one file a second time, with corrected info.
3) I was uploading 78s. I'd prefer the files to be both in the 78rpm collection, & the Community Audio collection. Is it either/or? If so, they should stay in Community Audio.

Here's a link to the uploads:

Hi, I thought you might be interested in an exchange about the archive.org 78 collection from this Jewish Music listserv. If you'd like to respond directly to clear up misunderstandings you can sign up at
http://lists.jmwc.org/listinfo.cgi/jewish-music-jmwc.org

Meanwhile here's what I read today about the archive.org collection:

"From:XXXX
to jewish-music
This looks kind of exciting, although some of the metadata looks a bit funky. I can find 12 Yiddish records. If I add "hebrew" to the filter, there is a bit more. But, since 99.9% of what has been digitized is labeled "English", no idea how much of Jewish interest is actually there. Also, no idea if George Blood, the person behind this project, is working with Henry Sapoznik, who I think is doing something similar, but focused on Jewish 78s, at UWisc/Madison:

https://archive.org/details/georgeblood"

I replied:
"From: MJeanette Lewicki

9:21 AM (35 minutes ago)

to World
This summer I uploaded some Pepi Littman audio files to the Internet Archive, & after a week or so got an email request for permission to add them to the 78 collection. I agreed.

You can find them by searching archive.org with the search term "Pepi Littman" or "Pepi Litman" (I added both terms when I uploaded).

https://archive.org/search.php?query=pepi%20litman

The search term "Yiddish" yields almost 2000 audio files from archive.org which can be filtered by artist name & other preset filters:

https://archive.org/search.php?query=yiddish∧[]=mediatype%3A%22audio%22

I got 20 results for "Yiddish" from the George Blood collection. I conclude that these are a few 78s uploaded by one user to the wider collection.
https://archive.org/details/georgeblood

When I uploaded I added my own metadata. I was not given an option to upload directly to the 78 collection. Also, files had to be uploaded one at a time. I would add a few hundred more if I could figure out how to do it in bulk!"

1) about bulk uploading: i am using a mac with osx 10.11.6 El Capitan. i've never worked directly with unix. if somebody walked me through the prompts once i would be happy to try!

i have about 100 hours of yiddish songs to upload. they are not 78s; they are digitial files made from reel-to-reel recordings circa 1948. each file is about 1 hour in real time. i have them as mp3s & as .wav files.

2) about metadata: my own metadata has been corrected, thanks very much for that. was i right in saying on the listserv that George Blood is not a project manager but probably just another user?

The HTML5 Uploader looks nicer and works better. It's more stable, and less prone to errors -- at least for me, using Firefox on Linux.

It'd be nice if managing files *after* they are uploaded were a little easier. Moving, renaming, or deleting files one at a time can be a pretty cumbersome when updating a relatively large collection.

Unusable for almost everything. Maybe archive.org has throttled connections from GCS? Either that or there is a compatability issues with Server 2016.

It works well enough, if very slowly.
However, it's useless of uploading in bulk. Case example: I have about 100 magazines to upload, but in the current system I have to upload each one individually, then write the metadata, then repeat the process for the next 99 issues. Not something I have the time or in inclination to do. An option to address this would be very useful.

The uploader doesn't work by default in Tor Browser, because of its restriction of third-party cookies. In order to use the uploader, you have to click Torbutton (the onion icon in the toolbar), select "Privacy and Security Settings...", and then uncheck the box labeled "Restrict third party cookies and other tracking data".

If you leave the box checked, you get an infinite loop of "There is a network problem, [Resume Uploading], 403 Forbidden (details)" dialogs. Concretely, the 403 error comes from the XHR PUT to https://s3.us.archive.org/ (the console logs "onload received error status").

I have also tried using the classic uploader, which appeared to work but then said no files had been uploaded. There is no sign of them in my account so I assume it's true.

Hi,

I am just testing the new uploader out right now. Is there a way to batch upload/queue up multiple files to upload to multiple identifiers?

For example, i have to distinct video files, I want the first one to go to https://archive.org/details/file1 and the second one to go to https://archive.org/details/file2. I don't want to open multiple instances of archive.org/create and start them at the same time because it will slow everything down and I just want the files to upload one at a time.

It looks like I can add multiple files, with the new uploader but they would all go to one identifier, like https://archive.org/details/file1

Batch uploads saves a bit of time for me in case an upload task completes overnight, then the next job would get started immediately instead of having me to initiate it in the morning.

Thank you as always for the wonderful work you all do.

The new uploader is a mess. I need the triple time to upload. (I use Firefox 45)
* The old uploader started the upload during I filled in the metadata. Now I have to wait until every step is done before the uploads starts. During this time I can do nothing.
* The old uploader could be used by keys. Now every thing is to be clicked, so, its typing, clicking, typing and so on. A lot of unnecessary clicks by the way. I can not even use the Tab to enter the next field – very hard to understand.
* The old uploader provides autocompleting. To upload a series of periodicals I need just to type the first letter and I got the whole text. Now I have to type everything from the scratch or have a lot of unneccesary copy-paste-action.

Please re-install the old uploader – I do not want to waste my time with handling a handicuped program.

if you click the "Classic Uploader" button there a finder window should open where you should select the files you want to upload and then click "Open". Your files will then upload and you can see the progress bar.

First, let me start by saying that I really have enjoyed being an Archive user and I am really grateful for all the help I have received from you. But here on the matter I have started to have really bad experiences with the Beta uploader. Most of the files I have been uploading are in PDF format. Ever since the new uploader started I have not been able to upload correctly my PDF files. Many times already the derivative process gets frustrated to no avail when I try to read online. I have posted my concern and I have been helped kindly but I am hesitant to ask for help every time I want to upload an item. I have been uploading on Safari and lately on the Chrome web-browsers but the problem persist even with files that I have uploaded before; (please note: my PDF files are not corrupt, I can't imagine why they could)
but thank you really; many thanks on the great endeavor that you continue to do on Archive.org I hope this problem gets fixed eventually.
Your friend, Juan Luis

I hate that this publishes the item as soon as it uploads. The ftp option let me publish whenever I wanted (within 3 days), which I need in order to synchronize things with my website. This is inconvenient since I can't even estimate how long the upload is going to take. A simple checkbox for requiring confirmation before publishing would be nice.

gets changed to

on upload. Since the code for the streaming needs the _ this means I need to go back and edit the fields afterwards.

I was trying to upload a 750 MB .ZIP file that contains almost 2000 images of a scanned book using http://archive.org/upload/.

Unlike the other part of the world in my place (India) the internet is very irregular and the speed is comparatively less. So uploading a 750 MB file will take almost 1 or 2 hours. In between the connection might go also. But this upload form is refreshing (that is, it restarts the uploading from beginning) when the internet connection is reset. Most of the time this is happening after almost 50% of the upload process is over.

Is there is a way to add a feature for pause the uploading and restart the uploading from the place where it stopped when these type of disturbance occur? Many download/upload clients support that type of feature. Why can't Archive.org also do some thing similar?

Hi Brian,

When you upload files, you can choose a license for the them during the upload process. Click on the License field and then choose the appropriate options, like "Prohibit Commercial Use."

See https://archive.org/download/uploader-license/uploader-license.png for a screen shot of this.

Thanks,

This beta uploader is not user-friendly for visually impaired people using the JAWS screen reader. It's confusing having to click on each field you want to type in, rather than having the fields come up with boxes all ready to edit as in the old uploader.
I suggest you have a new uploader with the browse button on top, then all the
archive.org/editxml
fields right below it (in the easy edit format). I believe this would be a better solution for those of us who are visually impaired, and it would be an improvement over the old uploader as well, as a person could easily add files and add all the metadata at the same time. Currently, I have to go through three processes to upload one patent. I have to (1) create the identifier, (2) add the files, and (3) edit the XML so the title is different from the identifier. This new uploader is unfriendly enough that I'll need to stick with the old method until a more accessible version of the uploader comes along.
Thanks for listening.

hm, i'm still having this problem: with the new uploader, i select multiple files (flacs in this case) and begin, but when it reaches the end of the first file (in the latest instance, after 26MB) it announces a network error with the option to resume uploading. if i resume it starts from the beginning, uploads 26MB (or whatever the size of the first file is), and then errors again, endless loop. i would just use the classic uploader, but i'm nervous about not being able to specify which collection my item goes in, as it started putting my soundfiles under texts for some reason, and most recently put one in 'ourmedia':

Just wanted to let you know I have uploaded all my content to the site using the beta uploader. I have some files over 10 megs and numerous files below this amount. I use Linux Mint with Firefox and the beta uploader worked perfectly. Additionally I noticed a Unix warning about uploading and was immediately redirected to a page to manually upload. Instead of the redirection perhaps a redirection to the beta uploader by default would be better as I had to browse back from the manual entry page following the Unix upload error and quickly click on the beta uploader to use it. All in all a great job!

The search feature doesn't find the page after many tries using different keywords. Recent upload activity finds zero uploads.

Did my upload work or not? How can I move the file to a more appropriate place. If I can't find it, knowing exactly what to look for, how can anybody else?

This may not be a "New Beta Uploader" question, but something is definitely wrong.

Forum: forums Subject: Re: New Beta Uploader

For those of us who are not especially technically proficient with your system, I would suggest a revised and simplified format--as follows:

1. Users should be able to create a general page title and then have an option (a check box?) which would permit the user to indicate that they want to upload multiple files under that ONE page title.

Example:
(a) User creates a page captioned "FBI File Collection by..." (Enter User Name here) and then
(b) User has check box option to indicate "add files to this page".
(c) If the box is checked, then the user can select as many files as desired (up to max size limit) which will be added to that "FBI File Collection..." page. Each file should be able to be given a unique name (i.e. the specific subject of that file which is being added under the generic "FBI File Collection" title page.
(d) If the box is NOT checked, then the user creates a new title page for each uploaded file.
EXAMPLE: Suppose a user wants to create a general title page such as "FBI Files on Left-Wing Individuals and Organizations". With the check box option, the user could then add as many files as desired--which fall under that general subject---but each file uploaded to that title page would specify the name of the person or group.


2. There appears to be some kind of MAJOR flaw in the "choose files to upload" feature.

I selected 15 pdf files saved on my PC--each one of which was 20MB or less. I then clicked "upload".

After waiting (literally) 5 hours (!!!) -- I still was getting a message stating that your system was uploading my files.

So I then logged out of the Archive altogether and,immediately went back in to check how many of my 15 files had finished uploading.

To my astonishment, ALL 15 files had been uploaded---even though there was no "finished" message during the upload process nor was there any "progress" status shown -- which would tell a user how many files were still being uploaded.

By contrast, when I uploaded one file at a time, I could see the actual progress of the upload, i.e. how much of the file size had been completed and approx how much time was left to finish uploading the file.

That same progress summary (for one file at a time) should apply to multiple files being uploaded . Otherwise, users like me might wait 5 hours (!!!) for something which, for all I know, was actually finished uploading in one hour or less (!!!) [Incidentally, my PC upload speed is 6.5MB; my download speed is 50MB]

that is because it does not upload until you click the upload button. gives you a chance to add or delete files before creating your item. the old one did not allow that.

I happen to agree with you, for what it's worth -- I'd love it if the uploading was happening in the background while you're sorting out your information (like facebook does for video and picture uploading, etc.) and like we did with the prior uploader [ disclaimer: I wrote our prior uploader ;-0 ]

Maybe we can get "upload while metadata-ing" added as a feature in the future!

Hi Alexis One point noted uploading/comments/info, work OK, when I receive the Last dialog box it tells me how many other files it has to encode before the one up loaded. The Dialog box does not change nor goes away, just hangs longest test has been one hour.

I find if I check for the uploaded file using another machine it is already in place and functional.
Uploading transport Win & IE 11. Check Mac Pro / Safari.

Any reason why the uploader should stall at this point?

Love the new beta uploader except it doesn't address the main shortcoming of the classic uploader: that you still have to repeatedly specify collection, license, language etc. It makes the upload process painful as you have to constantly reenter these defaults. So populating a single collection requires far to many clicks over and over. And if a mistake is made for instance, forgetting to put in your collection, then your upload is effectively "lost" in community space etc. Is there any way to store a cookie or at least retain a session record of the last upload to make this so much smoother?

Please see these instructions on how to preset collection and other metadata with the new uploader:

These features were added to help populate entire collections.

Worked very smoothly, easily and well in uploading the files ("The 911 Letters").

However, it automatically classified them as "text" in the summary page, whereas actually they are mp3 audio files. Not sure if this matters - I don't recall being asked about the media type, and I can't change the metadata to anything but "text" now...

Any advice?

I had trouble last week getting the upload to accept my file at all; no clue why, tried restarting a few times and gave up. Today it worked with no problems. Using Chrome, on the same PC, both times.

The license selection is better, but I would like to suggest one improvement. I wanted "attribution", but permitting everything else. The menu does not make it clear what does or does not require attribution.

(and I also miss the background-uploading, as previously noted here)

Hello!

Today I tried the new uploader with a new release for my netlabel.
The upload of 92MB took 4 hours (and there's nothing wrong with my upload speed)!

Accidentally, I forgot to add the release to the Netlabels collection and now it seems to be impossible for me to fix it. Is there still a way?

Kind regards and keep up the good work,
João

Howdy!

I quite liked the fact that the older uploader started uploading immediately and you didn't have to wait to fill in all the fields.

Also while the file is uploading, there is no "stop" or "pause" button.

And given that there were a bunch of difficulties today, if you can keep the amount of data uploaded in KB instead of MB, it will make sitting in front of a fairly static page more entertaining.

Some nice improvements.

I do miss being able to quickly enter the item data by tabbing to the next field. Tabbing seems to send my focus anywhere but where I need it. It's a simple thing, but if someone has time to fix it, I'd be grateful. Also, it used to save me time that it would start uploading the file before I started entering the item data (description, license, author, etc.).

Thanks for the good work.

there will be more features in the v2 release. Tabbing will be one of them.

One benefit with the new uploader is to allow you to add and remove files after adding metadata. And, it is not unusual for folks to choose an incorrect file and want to remove it or wish to add one they missed.

Thanks for the feedback.

I hope to solve that soon and i hope you will find better ways for making uploading much easier .. thanks alot for that Great and Best uploading in the world Without exaggeration >> :D

Thanks for the uploader, but I have been unable to get it to work, after trying for 2 1/2 hours, now. It starts to create the page, but after about 7 minutes, it says that there was "a network problem." Not sure what that means. Anyhow, I would really like to make the pamphlet, "Minutes of Debates" (1792), available. It is an historically important document, of which only two copies remain in existence, and I am able to upload one of them--if only I could get the uploader to work! (Is it me?) Barbara Alice Mann

2. only Archive admins can move items out of the public collections to other collections. it may be done on request. send it to info@archive.org

I just want to inform you of some small issues I'm having with editing the content pages I was documenting.

First, when I did a mistake, I tried to delete a file that I accidentally inserted, but after submitting the change, the file is never erased, it was still there. The exact similar problem I also have with it is that when I try to move a file in the directory menu, it sometimes won't even transfer, even after submitting it. I left the documented contents the way they were for fifteen minutes, and it still didn't matter, nothing worked. I don't understand why that does, or does not happen in certain instances. The problems took place when I was documenting the machinima videos from YouTube in case something bad happens to them, even though YouTube is pretty much in a state of corruption nowadays.

It's named simply as "Machinima Pack (WIP)"

I'd very much appreciate it if this was all fixed. Many thanks.

With regards, ToxicHolyGrenade.
