Internet Explorer and Firefox will automatically prompt the user to download Flash if they do not have the plug-in installed.

You can also post a link for your viewers to manually download the Flash Player.

Just hyperlink this url

<a href="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash&promoid=BIOW">Get your Flash Player here!!</a>

NO

"IE and firefox automatically find flash plugin?"

Not really find, it actually has a pointer in the browser program to auto download from a pre-determined location.


"My site build by php and flash, I used some computer at internet cafe to see, the flash cannot display and the IE6 browser doesn't request me to download any plugin, anyone know why?"

at the Internet Cafe, they may have the browser NOT run any Flash, so that it doesn't pose an inherent opportunity for virus attacks, thus will be prohibited at most establishments.
