Hi,
I'm using a Flash movie in a corner of a web page. Is it possible to also insert an image in this space to compensate for the big blank that users get if they haven't got Flash Player on their machine?

If so, what is the code please?

Thanks.

In your any flash detection tech. if it don't find flash player instead of redirecting to macromedia site call your image. If it finds flash play it will play flash movie.

Use any bellow flash detection tech.

You could always export your flash movie as an animated gif from flash using export movie from the file menu.
