By Sam Deering

Simple jQuery snippet to check if flash is enabled on your browser. Also I found a useful article of how to turn flash on and off for browser testing.

function isFlashEnabled()
{
    var hasFlash = false;
    try
    {
        var fo = new ActiveXObject('ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash');
        if(fo) hasFlash = true;
    }
    catch(e)
    {
        if(navigator.mimeTypes ["application/x-shockwave-flash"] != undefined) hasFlash = true;
    }
    return hasFlash;
}
