What can i do to find if the user has the flash plug installed or else i will show an animated .gif instead of the .swf? Does anyone knows how to go around this? I searched on the Macromedia site but didnt find anything.

I found this on the web. It's a bit old but maybe it can help you. http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx/detection.htm
var MM_contentVersion = 6;
var plugin = (navigator.mimeTypes && navigator.mimeTypes["application/x-shockwave-flash"]) ? navigator.mimeTypes["application/x-shockwave-flash"].enabledPlugin : 0;
if ( plugin ) {
      var words = navigator.plugins["Shockwave Flash"].description.split(" ");
       for (var i = 0; i < words.length; ++i)
      if (isNaN(parseInt(words[i])))
      var MM_PluginVersion = words[i];
   var MM_FlashCanPlay = MM_PluginVersion >= MM_contentVersion;
else if (navigator.userAgent && navigator.userAgent.indexOf("MSIE")>=0
   && (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("Win") != -1)) {
   document.write('<SCR' + 'IPT LANGUAGE=VBScript\> \n'); //FS hide this from IE4.5 Mac by splitting the tag
   document.write('on error resume next \n');
   document.write('MM_FlashCanPlay = ( IsObject(CreateObject("ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash." & MM_contentVersion)))\n');
   document.write('</SCR' + 'IPT\> \n');
if ( MM_FlashCanPlay ) {
      document.write('<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"');
   document.write('  codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" ');
   document.write(' ID="script" WIDTH="300" HEIGHT="200" ALIGN="">');
   document.write(' <PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="script.swf"> <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high> <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF>  ');
   document.write(' <EMBED src="script.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF  ');
   document.write(' swLiveConnect=FALSE WIDTH="300" HEIGHT="200" NAME="script" ALIGN=""');
   document.write(' TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">');
   document.write(' </EMBED>');
   document.write(' </OBJECT>');
} else{
   document.write('<IMG SRC="script.gif" WIDTH="300" HEIGHT="200" usemap="#script" BORDER=0>');
</SCRIPT><NOSCRIPT><IMG SRC="script.gif" WIDTH="300" HEIGHT="200" usemap="#script" BORDER=0></NOSCRIPT>
