I have the following script that checks for flash.  if it has it, it plays the .swf.  if it doesn't have flash, it plays the alternate text.   These parts work great.  However, I need to show an image below the flash video, but can't get it to ONLY show when flash is present.  So to reiterate, when flash video plays, it has flash installed...  all good, but I also need an image .jpg to show beneath it.   Here is the script that works

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://tactical-arms.com/template/images/scripts/swfobject.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[
                  var flashvars = {};
                  var params = {};
                  params.play = "true";
                  params.loop = "false";
                  params.menu = "true";
                  params.quality = "high";
                  params.scale = "noscale";
                        params.allowfullscreen = "false";
                  var attributes = {};
                  swfobject.embedSWF("http://tactical-arms.com/template/images/scripts/test.swf", "myAlternativeContent", "585", "270", "9.0.0", false, flashvars, params, attributes);
// ]]></script>

<div id="myAlternativeContent"><a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer"><img style="margin-top: 20px; margin-bottom: 20px;" src="https://www.xxxx.xxx/ver4.png" alt="Get Adobe Flash player" width="586" height="488" /> </a></div>

I was thinking that just adding a <img Src= somewhere after the swfobject line, but I don't think I have the right syntax.

But if you want to show an image when flash player presents you have to move out myAlternativeContent div

<div id="holder">
	<div id="myAlternativeContent" style="position:static;width:586px;height:488px"></div>
	<a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer"><img  src="https://www.xxxx.xxx/ver4.png" alt="Get Adobe Flash player"/></a>
</div>
