Property Value

A boolean value (true or false). If true, the user can add folders to upload list. Otherwise only files can be added.


If this property is false and the user adds some folder to the upload list, Video Uploader will add all files from this folder instead of the folder itself.

Default value is "false".


When the uploaded folders contain subfolders, you probably would like to restore the folder structure on the server. To do it, you can parse the FileName_N POST field. It contains not just the file name, but the relative path (relatively the folder which is being uploaded, including the name of this folder). For example, if the user sends a MyDocuments folder, which contains a MyVideos subfolder; all files inside this subfolder will be received on a server and their FileName_i POST fields will contain MyDocuments\MyVideos\filename values.
