Hey ThemeForest developers :)

I need some help with HTML5 .. In my latest item I am using HTML5 techniques that include FileReader. The FileReader function only works in Chrome & FireFox, so I am looking for an alternative which will work in all of the other browsers.

Thanks Adam

Check out https://github.com/Modernizr/Modernizr/wiki/HTML5-Cross-browser-Polyfills

I think there is one in there that patches the FileReader API in non supporting browsers.

I think this is the one, right? I didn’t fully understand what exactly does it do? His demo uses FileReader() and it doesn’t work in Safari.. Thank you very much!

I missed your reply earlier, doh! Sorry Adam, I am just aware of the page I linked you to, but I don’t have a bunch of experience using FileReader unfortunately.

Want me to move this to the CodeCanyon forums to see if that might help? :)
