Flash Plugin Detection in Flash 8

by @ 2:33 pm. Filed under Flash Tutorials

Flash plugin detection is very easy to implement in Flash 8. Its actually built-in. In this tutorial I will show you how to activate Flash plugin detection for whatever version of Flash that your Flash document requires.

This Flash tutorial will be presented in a step-by-step format:

1. Open the Flash document that you want to insert Flash plugin detection on or create a document.
2. Go to Publish Settings. Click File>Publish Settings… (shortcut key: CTRL+SHIFT+F12).
3. In the Formats tab, make sure that Flash (.swf) and HTML (.html) are checked. Click on the HTML tab.

4. Click the box next to Detect Flash Version. Select the version you require for your movie (the default is Version 8 ).

5. Click Publish at the bottom of the window and your done.

The Flash plugin detection script is located in the HTML file that was created when you published your movie. If you want to use the Flash plugin detection in a different HTML file then take the scripts between the tags from your original HTML file and put them into your new HTML file (between the tags).
