    Flash only Player Detection

    Hi there,

    Please can somebody tell me the code required to do a GetURL which only the Flash Player 6 will do?

    Thanks,

    CN.

    You mean condition the getURL to work if and only the Flash player 6 is installed?

    Use getVersion()...

    // a simple function to get the version number...

    _root.getVersionNum = function() {
    var num = getVersion().substr(4, 1);
    return num;
    };

    // and use like so...

    if (_root.getVersionNum() < 6) {
    getURL("http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash");
    } else {
    getURL("/main.htm")
    }

    Oh, hang on.

    'getVersion().substr(4, 1)' will give you a blank space if the platform is UNIX.

    Look here

    C.

    Check for the platform also, then!

    But new one's may arise.

    What I need is some code which simply won't work in 5 and below.

    For the Flash player 5, I think this could be achieved by calling a function.

    I think I got it.

    I just switched compression on.
