Hi all,
I have managed to modify SWFupload to upload files to Amazon S3 directly. But now I need to pass the folder values over so that I can put the files in a specific folder on the S3 server. Can someone tell me what variable carries that. I see where its written on the page at
<h2 id="FileDataObjectManager_Popup_UploadForm_HeaderFieldAdd-files-to-images-s">Add files to "images"s</h2> where "image" is the folder name, but I cant find where that is writen in the code.
Can someone help?

You can use SWFUploadConfig::addStaticPostParams() or SWFUploadConfig::addDynamicPostParams() to pass data to the swfupload handler. A dynamic post param would be the name of a field on your form, in case you want a user-defined value for the post, but it sounds like with S3, you just need static params.
