I get a hint when I have no pix, wierd message boxes open up or my
browser crashes. Then I check using technique in MM 12696. Links to why
MIME is needed, how to test and how to set are all at:
Every Flash Developer should know if his server has the MIME set for
Flash and the only way to do this is by a proper test. I have even
provided a set of files to make testing of MIME extremely fast and easy.
These files can be used to monitor whether the MIME has been set
correctly on a server and are 100% reliable. They require a Flash
capable browser other than MSIE 3+ Win 95/98/NT. If you only have MSIE
3+ Win 95/98/NT just post a message to a friend or the List. If you have
the test files up, it will take only seconds to determine if the MIME is
set or not.

Yes, there is no way to know if your browser will work correctly if the
MIME is not set (except for MSIE 3+ Win 95/98/NT) except by checking.
