Flash Slideshow Troubleshooting

I have Created a simple slideshow, worked fine on local machine.

Uploaded it to my web site hosted …, it didn’t and displayed the “Download Flash” message.

Looked into the flashdetect.js source code, found the vendor’s url, went there, saw they had a new version, swfobject.js v.1.5. Downloaded that code, tested again,
now it worked.

Summary: flashdetect.js v1.4.1 does not work for example on Godaddy hosted sites. Replace it with swfobject.js (you can rename it to flashdetect.js) and everything works.

It is very hard to find the version 1.5 so you can download it here : flashdetect




Since 30 years I work on Database Architecture and data migration protocols. I am also a consultant in Web content management solutions and medias protecting solutions. I am experienced web-developer with over 10 years developing PHP/MySQL, C#, VB.Net applications ranging from simple web sites to extensive web-based business applications. Besides my work, I like to work freelance only on some wordpress projects because it is relaxing and delightful CMS for me. When not working, I like to dance salsa and swing and to have fun with my little family.
