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
