Zooomr uploader update

OK, through Paynito I discovered the original Sourceforge home of the Java Zooomr uploader, jUploadr. Initially it wouldn't run - while other Java apps work just fine on my system - but after using the create a new envinronment variable fix for Windows I got the thing to work.

However it appears to be a Flickr uploader, not a Zooomr uploader, and if there's a way to get it to upload to Zooomr instead (I believe they have compatible APIs), I haven't found it...

Update Paynito pointed me to the "zooomr-ised" version of jUploadr. It's the one I found - via the Zooomr blog - the first time round, but failed to get it to work, no doubt as I had then not performed the environment variable fix.

It's also a bit weird that a Windows file comes tarred and gzipped! Still, being hidden away at the moment, I guess it's still on Kris's list of Things to Do and will be improved before being made public.

Hi Dan,

Zooomr does support the Flickr API and I'm working with key developers so that Flickr uploaders and applications can play with both Flickr and Zooomr alike.

Zooomr 2 will be coming out this week, so keep your eyes out for it.

I've been waiting for your post - in fact, that's why I turned comments back on :-).

I must say it's very cool to have the operator of a website check what people are saying about it, and even respond.

I look forward to Zooomr 2!
