DDG can tell you your flash version but it doesn't give you the last 3 numbers:
Example: On DDG: "Your Flash Player version: 11.1.102 More at Adobe".
Full version: "184.108.40.206"
Also, it would be useful to have the version table available on Adobe at: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/155/tn_15507.html
@zekiel Downside to this is that the user would have to download more content to get it working because we have to use some other library which we're not currently planning on using: https://code.google.com/p/swfobject/
I think we should just tolerate this. @sdougbrown @bsstoner any opinion on this?
Whoa, I didn't realize we were building FlashDetect into core. Is it used for anything else besides this spice? Can we remove and just add to this spice?
You can get the full version without a lib. It's like 20-30 lines of code for cross-browser detection. Something like this in Chrome/FF: navigator.mimeTypes["application/x-shockwave-flash"].enabledPlugin It's a little more verbose in IE.
@bsstoner Yup, we can do that too, but I thought I should take advantage of FlashDetect since it's already there. It's not used in any other Spice, and a quick grep in the core repo didn't show anything. We should probably move it out of there then.
not my area of expertise :) defaulting to your judgement
@jagtalon @zekiel @bsstoner Seems like this can be closed then?
@javathunderman I don't think we've resolved it yet, so we should keep it open.
Fixed in #2373
@MrChrisW nice 👍
