    JPEG substitute for Flash

    When someone doesn't have Flash installed (what kinda browser are they using?) or if it's just disabled or what not, what is the code you need in order to provide alternate JPG or Code for the Flash area content.

    I know you could create a javascript program to detect it and then either show the JPG or embed the SWF, but is there code that's built into the Flash Object or Embed tags?

    You could put the Flash movie in a table cell and give the cell a background image (this works also if you want your movie to be transparent, but it's useless unless you don't have your movie moving...).

    Cheers!

    i believe the 'publish' settings in flash will
    give you the option to have either the first
    frame of your .swf or your own chosen .gif file
    if the user don't have the player.

    hope that helps..

    in the publish settings you have to create a gif file at the formats tab, then choose detect flash 6 at the html Template. never tried to see whether it works though
