[Feature Request] Sending Multiple Files And Folders
Are files compressed during transit to reduce the bandwidth. And is the file compression very high?
Please allow the ability to select multiple files and folders to be sent over Jami. I think a good way to do this is when the user selects multiple files, it will compress them into a 7zip archive file with ultra compression and then send it.
Once the receiver downloads the file, when they open it they can choose were to extract the file
I would suggest using .7z as the archive extension since it is open source and has very good loseless compression (Especially when the compression is set to ultra). I would still suggest compressing any file, even single files when it is in transit to help reduce bandwidth, transfer speed and since by sending files in Jami, it makes a copy of the file from your computer and pastes it into the Jami conversation.
If 7z compression is added, the file transfer should tell you what the file(s) size is compressed and uncompressed so the receiver know the actual size of the file(s) and the transfer size.
