How do I output a default image if there is no Flash plug-in?
Posted on 2007-08-07
How do I provide a default image for those who don't have the Flash plugin installed in their browser when they visit a page with a Flash movie? For example: I have a page with a Flash movie that transitions block of text on and off the stage. If a visitor to that page doesn't have Flash, I would like to put a default image of a block of that text in the place whre the movie would have played. And I want to do that without there even knowing they could have seen a movie if they had the plugin. Being that this is a home page, I don't want to antogonize visitors with plugin requests when they first come to my site.
I have also posted a similar question for another related instance: How not to have plugin request or empty movie boxes appear if theydont have Flash installed (and, in that instance, no default image would be displayed either).
