    How can I make swf/ flv flash video in a website play in any/all version of flash pl

    First, thank you for the reply/help Terrencing, please I am replying to your kindly response on the forum that I posted earlier, my reply is how possible can I apply the script to allow flash video play with the lowest flash player possible installed in the system, ( Please you can see below the swf flash code script attached in it) it wouldn’t play in some browser especially IE browser it ask for a newer version of flash player to be downloaded before playing the embedded video, please where exactly can I apply the code (looking into the flash video script inside the html page) that will prompt the flash player to play movie with the lowest flash player installed in the system starting from (flash player 6).
    In some computer that even has flash player 11 installed in it IE still asking for a newer version to be installed and refuse to play the video and below the browser (IE) you will see a message asking you to authorize a blocked element and when you click on authorize IE will then play the flash video, why is it so and how to eliminate this behavior from IE.
    By my experience I see flash video in some website like mine (the comment applied without my knowledge) with a comment asking the browser to download the latest flash player to play the video, why don’t they apply a code that will allow the browser to play the flash video with whatever version from e.g. from flash 6 to play the video, once again thank you for assistance.

    It is the flash player version you publish your movie at that makes most choice, you can only publish as low as video will allow, you have no choice over what player people have or want, you can only make it playable in the lowest possible, for video is reasonably higher than 5.

    value="8.0.35.0" will make it so people need that version or higher, you can remove it and let the browser choose.

    I think you have difficult problem with this as you not going make everybody see it, i would say most people have a later flash player installed, not everybody, but must be higher than needed as operating system comes with a low one, i think, then to view flash people will need to at least install a version somewhere.

    Thank you Terrencing once again, so once I remove this code (<param name="swfversion" value="8.0.35.0" />) then the browser will automatically chose the available flash player installed in the system to play the movie without asking to download a newer version?
