Browser without plugin

In the case that a page with a Flash movie would be viewed from a browser without the Flash plugin, I would like to know if it is possible in that cases (without the necessary plugin) to make appear an static or animated gif instead the movie, and the way to do this.

Place this script in the header of your page

<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
function MM_checkPlugin(plugin, theURL, altURL, IEGoesToURL) { //v2.0
  if ((navigator.plugins && navigator.plugins[plugin]) || //if NS, or
      (IEGoesToURL &&  //if flag set, and MSIE browser for Win95/NT (ActiveX)
       navigator.appName.indexOf('Microsoft') != -1 &&
       navigator.appVersion.indexOf('Mac') == -1 &&
       navigator.appVersion.indexOf('3.1') == -1)) {
    if (theURL.length>2) window.location = theURL;
  } else {
    if (altURL.length>2) window.location = altURL;
  }
  document.MM_returnValue = false;
}
//-->
</script>



Place this script in the body tag of your page

MM_checkPlugin('Shockwave Flash','enter thePage with flash animation herel','enter the page with the animated gif in here',true);return document.MM_returnValue"

I hope this answers your question let me know if you have any problems

copy and paste this script in the header of your web pages HTML  i.e. between the <head> and </head> tags

 <script language="JavaScript">
 <!--
 function MM_checkPlugin(plugin, theURL, altURL, IEGoesToURL) { //v2.0
   if ((navigator.plugins && navigator.plugins[plugin]) || //if NS, or
   (IEGoesToURL &&  //if flag set, and MSIE browser for Win95/NT (ActiveX)
           navigator.appName.indexOf('Microsoft') != -1 && 
           navigator.appVersion.indexOf('Mac') == -1 && 
           navigator.appVersion.indexOf('3.1') == -1)) {
    if (theURL.length>2) window.location = theURL;
                        } else {
    if (altURL.length>2) window.location = altURL;
                        }
    document.MM_returnValue = false; }
   //-->
 </script>



Place this script in the body tag (<body "insert it here">of your page)  

"MM_checkPlugin('Shockwave Flash','enter thePage with flash animation herel','enter the page with the animated gif in here',true);return document.MM_returnValue"

 I hope this answers your question let me know if you have any problems

What Kind of Coding Program is Right for You?

There are many ways to learn to code these days. From coding bootcamps like Flatiron School to online courses to totally free beginner resources. The best way to learn to code depends on many factors, but the most important one is you. See what course is best for you.

Sorry about that going a little mad in the head. What I forgot to tell you is what you need to do is create to web pages one with the flash and one with the animated gif then on the page with the flash do the following

copy and paste this script in the header of your web pages HTML  i.e. between the <Head> tags

i.e.  <head><title></title> PLACE THE CODE HERE </head>

<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
function MM_checkPlugin(plugin, theURL, altURL, IEGoesToURL) { //v2.0
       if ((navigator.plugins && navigator.plugins[plugin]) || //if NS, or
       (IEGoesToURL &&  //if flag set, and MSIE browser for Win95/NT (ActiveX)
                      navigator.appName.indexOf('Microsoft') != -1 && 
                      navigator.appVersion.indexOf('Mac') == -1 && 
                      navigator.appVersion.indexOf('3.1') == -1)) {
       if (theURL.length>2) window.location = theURL } else {
       if (altURL.length>2) window.location = altURL;                  }
              document.MM_returnValue = false; }
 //-->
</script>


THEN

Place this script in the body tag (<body "insert it here">of your page)  and enter the corresponding page names  in this piece of code.

onLoad="MM_checkPlugin('Shockwave Flash','enter thePage with flash animation here','enter the page with the animated gif in here',true);return document.MM_returnValue"

THEN

Once you have done this were ever  the page is being linked from link it to the flash page and on load this will then check to see if you have a plug in if you have it will load the flash page otherwise it will load the gif page

I hope this answers your question and it is clear enough for you let me know if you have any problems

Hi! I'm raulhdc, first of all thanks for your answer, but I have had a little problem with it, and I would be grateful you could help me. Well, I have made all that you said on your proposed answer, but when I test it I have problems. When the browser loads the page, at first the Flash movie begins, but instead of continue with the remainder of the movie, it begins another time, and in this way all the time. It makes an infinite loop all the time beginning the movie. If it can help you I will tell you that when it enters in the loop, if I press the stop button of the browser, the loop finishes and the movie continues with the remainder. Thanks for all.
