Top 10 Most Popular File Upload Scripts – Live Demo and Free Download(Part 1)


A File upload script is essential for every website and there are a plenty of such ready file upload scripts available on the web, but with their own pros and cons, So I thought that It would be a great idea creating a post on the  top ten file upload scripts ever and would serve as a very useful resource for all webmasters.For every script I have listed their advantages and disadvantages, so it would be easy for you to choose the right one. Below is my list of  top ten File upload Scripts :

Since I want to give a detailed review about all the ten scripts i will be only revealing the top five Upload scripts in this post and in my next post I will be revealing the next five upload scripts


1.Plupload


Review

For those who know some of these scripts might be wondering how Plupload came on the first position in the list rather than SWFupload.What really brings Plupload to the top of this list is its support for HTML5 Gears, Silverlight, Flash, BrowserPlus. If the user’s browser doesn’t support any of these then a normal HTML4  file upload is implemented moreover it-seems to be very stable.

Description from official website

Allows you to upload files using HTML5 Gears, Silverlight, Flash, BrowserPlus or normal forms, providing some unique features such as upload progress, image resizing and chunked uploads.Plupload is a highly usable upload handler for your Content Management Systems or similar. Plupload is currently separated into a Core API and a jQuery upload queue widget this enables you to either use it out of the box or write your own custom implementation.

Features

Feature Flash Gears HTML 5 Silverlight BrowserPlus HTML 4
Chunking
Drag/Drop *
PNG Resize *
JPEG Resize
Type filtering  *
Stream upload
Multipart upload  *
File size restriction
Upload progress

Pros and Cons

ADVANTAGES DISADVANTAGES
Upload files using HTML5 Gears, Silverlight, Flash, BrowserPlus or normal forms Lack of support, Forum is not very active
unique features such as upload progress, image resizing and chunked uploads.
Highly usable and stable upload handler with custom implementation

2.SWFUpload


Review

SWFUpload logo

SWFUpload uses both JavaScript and Flash library to provide a great upload experience.It is exactly similar to the attachment uploading Gmail which is very popular.It is a great upload script with almost every feature we want except for one main disadvantage that it uses Flash library.

Description from official website

SWFUpload is a small JavaScript/Flash library to get the best of both worlds. It features the great upload capabilities of Flash and the accessibility and ease of HTML/CSS.

Features

Features
Upload multiple files at once by ctrl/shift-selecting in dialog
Javascript callbacks on all events
Get file information before upload starts
Style upload elements with XHTML and css
Display information while files are uploading using HTML
No page reloads necessary
Works on all platforms/browsers that has Flash support.
Degrades gracefully to normal HTML upload form if Flash or JavaScript is unavailable
Control filesize before upload starts
Only display chosen file types in dialog
Queue uploads, remove/add files before starting upload

Pros and Cons

ADVANTAGES DISADVANTAGES
Upload multiple files at once and JavaScript callbacks Requires Flash and does not work in browsers with flash not been installed
Exactly similar to Plupload Customization becomes difficult without proper knowledge of javascript
Unlike Plupload, the forums are very active.
