Question Flash Player Question

If flash movie is saved in a flash player version 8, can the movie play with a browser that has flash player 7 /or 6 installed? If not, please provide a solution here.

This question may be related to the above issue. If a computer does not have a flash player, is it possible to install a flash player without the users knowledge on their browser?

Thank you.

It could, depending if you're not using Flash7 or Flash8 only features...

As for automatically installing a Flash player, without the user's acceptance in one way or an other, no that's not really possible...

You could use a Flash player detection script, and possibly warn the user that the movie will most likely not play correctly, and that he needs to install a new player plug-in... The script can even direct him to the download site, but the final decision, to install it or not, remains his own.

Attemp to publish your movie for the Flash 6 player...
If you get no warnings, then the movie will most likely play if the user only has player 6...
Otherwise, you'll get warnings when attempting to publish for player 6, that this movie contains features that are not available if published for the Flash player 6...
