How to detect flash installed / enabled in a browser

P: n/a
Hi friends..

i know it may be a repeated Q.
Though i had search across i couldnt get the right solution and in
some, links were broken..

I want to check a browser when a user clicks on a link whether it
supports playing Flash files or not,

If yes it starts playing the Flash file.
or else it should pop up a screen to ask downloading flash plug in
into the system.

Please help me

Regards,
Anees

Hmmm. Googling for "detect flash installed enabled" reveals 104,000 hits,
the first of which is the Adobe flash player detection kit. I recon Adobe
would be the authority on the subject :-)

Unfortunately they are not. Their detection kit is awful. Examples
posted elsewhere are typically just as bad. This issue will be
addressed in the CWR project soon.

The answer for this varies according to whether a specific version is
required and whether parameters need to be passed to the Flash movie
(older Safari browsers ignore those.) If the answer to those two
questions is no, then nested objects with a download message as the
fallback will work. The script would simply find and display the
outer object on click.

That is not even close to a good solution as it relies on browser
sniffing.
