What is it?

This mod will upload screen shots from in game straight to www.imgur.com. Once it has uploaded the image it will paste a link to the image into your chat. bUpload is multi-threaded, so while the image is uploading you can continue playing Minecraft as normal. bUpload does not save your file locally, it just uploads the image straight to imgur for safe storage, making it easy to share images with friends and post them on forums.


Features

  • Upload screenshot directly to www.imgur.com
  • Save images to your hard-drive within a sorted file structure
  • View all images in your history for the current session
  • Upload your images directly to your imgur account

How to use it

Press F12 in game to take a screen shot and upload it directly to imgur.com.
Once the upload is complete a link to the image will be pasted in your in game chat.


To view your session upload history, press the "=" key.


To link bUpload to your imgur account go into the settings menu, which can be accessed through pressing the "=" key and then clicking settings in the top right corner, then at the bottom it should say "Login to Imgur", click this button and follow the steps through and it will setup the link.

This is gonna become the place to go for "No Pics No Clicks" referrals, good job :)

But I have a question, if you take lots of screenshots in fast succession does it create a bunch of threads or just use one. Also, what would happen if you were offline?

It will create a new thread for every image. However, I'm not sure how imgur would handle multiple upload requests from one IP. In theory it will upload them all fine, but I will check.

If you are offline it will simply return the message 'Failed to upload image'. However in this case, I guess it makes sense to save the image to your screenshots folder, so you don't loose the image.

Makes sense, you did benchmarks on this?

It's pretty hard to benchmark as it's limited to the users internet upload speed. Thus why I threaded the upload. I have pretty quick internet so without threading it took a couple of seconds to upload so I didn't notice the lag really. However another one of the developers has extremely poor internet and had 30 seconds or so of lag.

So with the threading you can continue playing Minecraft whilst the image uploads in the background.

That's on the future features list. Currently it uses the anonymous api.

Sure is :) Works on single player and multi-player.
