Flash or HTML
Is there any chance to download Flash or HTML contents into browser automatically?
Something checks if a client browser (IE or NN) has a right Flash plugin installed.
If yes - server sends a Flash movie.
If not - server sends a substitute HTML content.

Don't cross post - you already posted this in the PHP forum.

Yes, but according to someone`s reply PHP has got nothing to do with that, so I`ve decided to move this thread to another forum. I think Flash forum is the most suitable now.

if scripting is disabled:
make a 1x1 flash movie that uses geturl(...) to load another page.
if the user has flash - it forwards automatically.
if the user doesnt but the browser can auto-install, it will. (probably not if scripting is deactivated, but thats another story)
if he doesnt like flash, he will just see the page but won´t notice the 1x1 flash.
if scripting is enabled there is a more elegant solution which i dont have here right now (its 22pm here and i am about to leave). but the way was:
- VBScript: create flash object, this will succeed or fail. Set same Variable true
if variable then document.write(<your flash-code here>)
if variable then window.location.href='...'

This all depends on how detailed you want to go. The moock flash player inspector, or "moock fpi" is an all purpose, user configurable flash plugin/activex control detector, created by Colin Moock:

what did you expect from a spanner?
