    hey all,

    this is more of a heads up to those of us who have stuff in place or are developing new sites for clients.

    i've been using the flash 6 player for about a month now, and many sites that use a java based sniffer bounce me to the non-flash page.

    i doubt the penetration of the flash player 6 will be that fast, but you should make plans to update your clients' sites before they start getting emails from customers who can't see the nifty flash content they spent so much money on.

    What sniffer works?

    Does the standard Javascript sniffer that ships with Flash 5 works?

    Code below:

    if (navigator.mimeTypes && navigator.mimeTypes["application/x-shockwave-flash"] ) {

    // Check for Flash version 5 or greater in Netscape

    var plugin = navigator.mimeTypes["application/x-shockwave-flash"].enabledPlugin;

    if (plugin && parseInt(plugin.description.substring(plugin.descr iption.indexOf(".")-1))>=5)

    UseFlash = 1;

    } else if (navigator.appName && navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft") != -1 &&

    navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Windows") != -1 && navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Windows 3.1") == -1) {

    // Assume any Windows IE except for Windows 3.1 supports the OBJECT tag

    UseFlash = 1;

    }

    that one seems to work, but there are lot of third party and self-developed ones that do not.
