I.E Plugin detection

P: n/a
Hello all!

I need to do detect the IPXI move player plugin in IE. I know you have
to look for the Active X object, Netscape you just loop through and it will
print out the plugins.
Can anyone point me to a script that will detect IE plugins?
Thanks in advance!

It's QuickTime specific, but it demonstrates one way to detect plugins on
Internet Explorer. Pay particular attention to phrases such as "Since plug-in
detection is a notoriously tricky business, this script was written to make
detection of the most common plug-ins as painless as possible."

If the code at the above URL does not give you enough information, you can try:
