I was recommended to this site by flashbuttons.com. I was wondering what script can be added to cause a .swf not to load if a FLASH player is not installed, and to then inform a surfer that they need to download a FLASH player.
I was experimenting with Netscape Navigator which didn't have a FLASH player installed. On one site with .swf files, the page download stopped and a popup with a warning came up stating that a FLASH player was needed. Another site attempted to download the FLASH presentation and shut down the browser, causing other problems with the PC as well.

I spent a lot of time looking through the scripts. Most of it was "undecipherable" to me, but I will keep looking for something that makes sense to me and let you know. I even went to macromedia.com to check out some "kit" that was mentioned in some of the postings.

This might work:
<embed src="yourflashmovie.swf"><img src="noflash.jpg"></embed>
This should bring up the "noflash.jpg" layer if they have'nt got flash......and that layer will have a hyperlink in directing them to the flashplugindownload site.....
tell me if it works as I have no time as Im buiding the site and doing that last.........thanks
