if Flash not installed?

P: n/a
Hello,

I have a web site which uses Javascript and soundManager2 which uses
Flash to play mp3 files

What is the best way to deal with a user whose PC browser does not
have Flash installed?

Thanks

One or both of:

Include a polite message pointing out that to hear your sounds they
should install and/or enable Flash and enable JavaScript.

Link to the MP3 files so that they can play them in the player of
their choice

Thanks Steve - I guess the first option!

Why? My mp3 player is much better than anything Flash comes up with. Why
would you want me to use an inferior product? Or to enable a dangerous
scripting language?

Good point.
Or to enable a dangerous scripting language?
Please stop distributing FUD. Client-side scripting is not any more
dangerous than the security leaks in the environment it runs in are. For
example, if JScript poses a danger in IE/MSHTML, it is MSHTML's fault which
provides the necessary API, particularly IE's borken insufficient security
model, not JScript's.
