Find out if a visitor has flash 8 installed?

Recommended Posts

I am working on a flash header for my site but… I’m using flash 8, I know that there are a lot of people that have not yet updated to view these files,

so i want to add some code to see if they have a viewer for flash 8 files

Is it possible to do this with php?

All I need to know is how to find out if they have macromedia flash 8, I can work the rest out as I go

Thanks for any help

You can check whether the user has flash8 installed within flash itself. Have a look at this from [a href=\"http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=tn_14294\" target=\"_blank\"]Adobe[/a] for play detection.

I belive you can do this with javascript. You cant do it with PHP as it runs on the server.
