#6979: Flash Player 10 breaks the media uploader

Comment (by filosofo):

 I've added a patch for SWFUpload 2.2.0 beta.

 The upload.png image is meant to be the background image of the flash-
 generated button.

 The problem is that in Flash 10 you can't trigger the file browse dialog
 window from an event attached to normal html, so you have to create a
 button in Flash.  SWFUpload will do that with text of your choice, but its
 styling is limited to
 a few styles] or a custom background image.

 The background image, if you use that, has to be in "sprite" form, which
 means that you have four images one above the other: normal view, hover
 view, click view, and disabled.  See the SWFUpload documentation
 [http://demo.swfupload.org/Documentation/ here] under button_image_url.
