Video Progress Bar Issue

I am using ffmpeg to post video to my site in a modal. When I post I
have
a second pop up window opening where the video should be uploaded and
processed while showing a progress bar. This enables my users to
continue
using the site while the video is processed and they will receive a
notification when its done. The files and parameters are not being
transferred from the modal to the second pop up window. I am using quite
a
bit of javascript between the modal, opening the pop-up and polling the
updates to the pop up window. Specifically I’m using query.

Nobody is going to have any chance of helping unless you show the code
that is failing. First, however, debug in to find the bit that is
failing. If you have to post more than twenty lines of code you have
not done enough debugging.

If you don’t know how to do this have a look at the Rails Guide on
debugging that will show you some techniques.

Note though that this is a Rails list, so if the problem is a
javascript/jquery issue rather than Rails this may not be the best
place to ask.

I don’t think you can transfer the target of a post like that, at least
not after it has been initiated. What you can do is initiate the post
into the popup window (create that window, wait some number of
milliseconds, then send the post), either in the main page of the
daughter window or an iframe within it, and then do your polling in
another frame in that daughter window. That would leave your main page
free to navigate elsewhere while the file was uploading.
