I'm having the same problem with the file size limit in SWFUpload. I put the following in 'mysite\_config.php' and nothing happened. The file size still showed a max of 20M

SWFUploadConfig::set_var('file_size_limit', '50M');

I then put this in the swfupload\_config.php file and this did change the error message but it's not exactly recognizing the file size.

Now I get this when trying to up load a 17.5M MP3 file.

"The file you selected is too big. The maximum size allowed is 50M. This file is 17.5M"

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The max file size is whatever your PHP configuration allows. So it will do no good to put in a higher value. The file will just get rejected.

I tried using your scripts on page2 and when I upload an image over 2MB, it is broke in the preview as well as the main gallery. Now if I upload an image that is smaller in size, it works properly and displays just fine. I own a VPS and have set the PHP upload limit to 6MB, the images are all around 4MB in size..
