    iOS does not allow uploads via mobile safari. Some android OS allows uploads. In iOS 6 Apple has allowed media uploads. iOS 6 will be released sometime this fall. I am using the beta version of iOS 6 and the media upload works great. If you cannot wait there are JavaScript workarounds but they are not that great. You basically have to have a user download an app from app store then user clicks link to open a separate app.

    How do you think it can be made easy like an app that a lot of people use. I know they can create an app like link on the iPhone or an android but I don’t think they will think that out. I cannot think of any other idea to make it easy for users. Is there a way to make an app like link with a button click?

    By the way thank you

    The BP-Media team isn’t planning to build an iPhone app for uploading. We feel an app for the plugin would interfere with the host site’s branding and user experience …think along the lines of: “myfinancialcommunity .com wants you to go to the iPhone app store and install “BP-Media Open-Source Media Uploader” so you can use the site”. Developers have spent the past decade training users not to install things websites tell them to install.

    Instead, we’re going to support “upload by email” capability, which seems to work consistently across the majority of mobile devices.

    Users would upload videos and large batches of images though our conventional uploader on the mobile device’s host PC, since trying to upload 100 iPhone photos (about 300MB) or 30 minutes of video (about 350MB) over a mobile device’s WAN connection would be too slow and too expensive.

    ^F^

    BP-media works out of the box with iOS 6. Uploads a very easy.
