Javascript :: Detect If Mobile Browser Can Install Flash?

I've run across several websites, including mine, that prompt users to download Flash even though their browser cannot install it. I want to avoid this confusing messaging by detecting whether a mobile browser can install Flash, not whether it has Flash.

Some known mobile browsers that can't install Flash are:

iOS Safari
Android Chrome beta
Android Firefox

Instead of building an ever-changing list of Flash installability, I would like to detect this in a general way in Javascript.

Javascript :: Detect Flash And Prompt To Install?
If no flash is installed and one browses to http:[url].... it'll launch a popup box: How exactly are they doing this? Through some jQuery java-script code snippet or other? Second, I would like to know if there is a better way to inform the user that they need flash. Or is this an appropriate way?

Javascript 3 :: Can A JavaScript Function Detect Which Flash DOM Object Called It
Here's the challenge: I have a Flash movie which will be embedded in a page using an unknown DOM ID that I want to be able to identify/store for callback in a JS function. My ideal user flow would be: User clicks button in Flash. Flash pauses any animations / video / sounds / etc. Flash calls an injected JS function to display a page-covering overlay experience. When user closes overlay experience, a callback method on the Flash object is called. Flash resumes playback.

The problem is, when AS3 uses the"functionName", args...) method, there doesn't seem to be a DOM event triggered, and thus it is impossible to tell which object called a JS function, so having a "registerMe()" function doesn't seem to work. Basically, the injected JS function has no way to determine which DOM object to call, because the ID of the Flash object is unknown.

Javascript :: Sending An Email From The Browser With Javascript And Flash?
I'm wondering if its possible to do what I'm thinking, and if it is possible, does anyone know of a flash object that does what I need? I know a Flash object can provide a javascript API to interact with it, what I dont know is can Flash send an email directly without the need to talk to the webserver to do so? If thats possible would it not be possible to write a flash object that did nothing but provide an API to send emails? Has such a thing been created that is out there for others to use?

I'm looking to create a email form on a web page but the site is static (no server scripting). In my situation server scripting is not possible as there is no server, the site is 100% client side on a CD/DVD/USB Stick.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Possible For Flash To Detect Browser Is Printing?
Does this sound at all possible (doesn't to me):Flash site is open...

1. User goes to their browser's options and chooses PRINT.
2. Flash (or Javascript) detects that and tells Flash.
3. Flash then responds by modifying what it's displaying before printing begins

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash / SWF File To Detect URL Browser Is Currently On
I'm mostly an art/design oriented person but am trying to learn some new things. I'm currently working on a test site for myself as a self-learning piece that will be a CSS laid out site with some Flash elements. Anyway, I'm completely stuck on this current problem..I will be placing a SWF file that will live on each page but will need to do different things based on which page the browser currently is on. It's nothing complex...will probably be something as simple as "on enter frame, if the browser is on this page 'http:www...', then jump to frame '#' ". This is how I'm placing the SWF file through the CSS.[code]

I read that "FlashVars" was the start of how to do this but as you can see in that last line, that's as far as I got on the CSS side. I have ZERO clue how to make the SWF file detect that value or detect the page the browser is on and then do something with AS3. Does this all make sense? I've searched through books and online for a little over 6 hours today and have not been able to figure this part out. Is it a simple line of code I need in the flash file or am I embarking on more than I can handle at this stage?

Javascript :: Detect Time On A Playing Flash Video?
I have a video playing on my page. I want to show and hide some div's when the video reaches a certain point. Lets say hide something on 10th second and show it again on 20th second.I can easily do it in HTML5 with video tag and currentTime attribute but for IE I have to create the same functionality and I think with flash based videos (from YouTube or something like that).Is there a way to detect the current time of a video playing on my website, embeded from YouTube, Metacafe or any other video sharing site?I know I could detect it in flash and make it run some JavaScript function but I don't have flash nor have the skills to do it in AS3.

Javascript :: Detect If An Embedded Swf Is Created With Flex Or Flash?
Is there a way (in javascript) to detect if an embedded .swf was created with Flash Professional or Flex.We have a page with several tabs, each of which can contain an .swf.All tabs are defined within the same HTML file and the javascript framework calls a .rewind() and .play() on the swf when the containing tab becomes active.This works great on regular flash animation, making sure they start playing from the beginning when the tab is opened. On an swf created with Flex however, the rewind and play wreak havoc on the Flex framework and the application doesn't load.

The best way we've come up with to detect Flex is to count the number of frames the .swf has. With flex that's always 2. But this doesn't sound like the best way.We've also tried to add a callback method with ExternalInterface on the Flex application preinitialize event.Unfortunately this event is called quite late in the application startup and the javasctipt code checks the callback before the Flex code has added it.

Javascript :: Jquery - Detect Flash Object Click?
Is there a way I can have JavaScript/jQuery know when a Flash object has been clicked (and still have Flash process the click)?

I tried putting a table on top of the object with position: fixed and a z-index and the object set to param name='wmode' value='transparent' so I could have my JavaScript detect which column was clicked using jQuery's click(), but the clicks were never intercepted by JavaScript (Chromium Linux).

Iphone :: Flash - Detect When Control Is Returned To Browser?
My client has a website that plays YouTube videos. Once a video is finished playing, it will automatically play the next one. This is done by using the YouTube API and swfobject.After some research, I was told that Safari on iPhone does not support flash. This make the current swfobject code not working on the iPhone browser.As workaround, when the user clicked on an embedded player, iPhone will launch the YouTube app.

Actionscript :: Detect Type And Version Of Browser From Within Flash
I want to know the type and version the browser that the user is running from within my Flex 4 application. I know I can get that information by using ExternalInterface to call Javascript. I know I can get that information from the server. I'm looking for a way to get that information directly from actionscript. I mean, isn't there a global variable or something that keeps this information?

Detect When Flash Player Is Disabled In A Browser Using Script?
I know how to detect if Flash player is installed in a browser. I'm using the hasFlashPlayerVersion() function of swfobject for that. However, I can't seem to find any documentation on how to detect if the plug-in is installed and just disabled. I didn't see any documentation in the Flash Player Detection Kit that checks if the plug-in is enabled either.
