#70 SocketException: Too many open files


I see this error often with jUploadr 1.1.2.

190/95 photos failed to upload

Network error:Too many open filesjava.net.SocketException: Too many open files

As soon as I press the upload button, the up arrow flashes across all the photos. Then it either shows this error or uploads a few photos and then shows this error. If I try to press the upload button again, it will sometimes (rarely) upload all the photos correctly and sometimes have the same error.

It happens more often when ~>50 photos are being uploaded. I'm using the java-1.5.0-sun JRE.

Let me know if you need any more information.

    Same happens to me. I'm trying to upload 303 photos.

    Pretty annoyn, after having picked all the photos.

    Getting the same error. I was uploading multiple pictures with multiple sets.

    If I close and re-open it gives the same exception/error.

    If I remove 1-2 sets to make the number if pictures, says 20-30, then it works no problem. Obviously I have to do more uploads to get the result I need but I don't know what the max number of pictures will throw this exception.

    This might be happening when a large number of photos are selected (blue square around each photo). I just tried clicking onto some white space within the program so the photos are deselected and tried "Upload" and it starts to upload.
