Is there any way to check whether Flash Player is instaLLed in cLient's browser using the PHP code??

So that I can launch either flash banner of GIF banner. That wont hurt my visitors saying to install flash player.

php cant detect client-side events , you will need to use javascript, if you wish I can move this to javascript forum.

actually you could use a splash page that automatically redirected (via flash) and have a timed meta refresh so if flash is not installed the first redirect will not happen and the meta refresh could be to a 'get flash' page

Here the case is..
I have developed the pages using PHP fully. All pages are created automatically.
The flash banner is aLsO called from within the PHP codes. So I need to knOw wheteher flash is instaLLed b4 calling for the flash banner.

This is what i need here. I think in this s/m it would be hard to use Javascriipt, bcos javascript will work after client is achived. If I detect using Javascript I cannot again call the banner function using the PHP code.

Any suggession?

If you have any new way to do this, pls help me. pls pls:thumbsup:
