    Help with upgrading client from Flash 4

    I am currently working with a large corporate client that is still limiting their site to the Flash 4 plugin. I'd like to put together a comprehensive presentation that will discuss the benefits of upgrading at least to 5. I'd love 6 or 7 but that might be pushing it. Does anyone know where I might find a compare list on Macromedias site or anywhere on the web that could help get me started?
    Thanks guys

    This may be a good place to start

    Looks like you'd be loosing about 2% of your audience. realistically though, that probably equates to nothing; dependent on you audience...

    These links are definitely great to have. Thanks!
    However, I was hoping to compile a list of the differences between the player versions...for example you can't use getBytesLoaded in 4 which is essential for creating exact preloaders. Stuff like that. I need to convey this to the client so they will understand the technology a bit so they will be comfortable upgrading.

    open up flash 5 (or whatever you want to publish to) and find the key functions and other actionscript code that you would like to use (of course describe the benefit) and in the help menu it tells you what version it is available in.
