Subject: Re: FLASH: Flash: Yet Another Detection Script Request

The closest thing I've seen to 100% is the one we use on our site, which
uses no JavaScript (which is a good thing, since JavaScript is probably
enabled in less browsers than Flash). It's Macromedia's "self-detecting
sniffer" method, not something we came up with on our own, but if
you're interested, we have example source (FLA & HTML) up at:


I spent a lot of time testing out every method I could find, and this is the
only one I found satisfactory. The only drawback I find is the client-side
redirect, so if you're looking to avoid a client-side redirect, then maybe
JavaScript is your only answer.
