    Macromedia automatic download.

    I have a flash program on my page, and (obviously) you need to have flash installed in-order to see it.

    Is it possilbe to make a code that automaticly opens up a download that says you need macromedia to view this page, click here to download?

    But I don't want it to redirect them to the macromedia site, I just want them to be able to download it directly from my site.

    You can specify the classid and stuff so it will automatically do that. I suggest visiting the macromedia website to find the exact code.

    Code

    Yep if you wrap your flash movie round the ol classid id like so

    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=5,0,0,0" width="80%" height="100">
    <param name=movie value="yourmovie.swf">
    <param name=quality value=high>
    <embed src="yourmovie.swf" quality=high pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="80%" height="100">
    </embed>
    </object>

    and just edit the width and height
    Or if you have dreamweaver go to insert, media, flash then it does it automatically for you.
