Re: How do I do IE6 only
View the source cage on my page at http://www.cwdjr.net/flash/grubs.php
. This forces flash code that uses an ActiveX object for IE browsers
only. This has certain advantages on IE for large video file sizes
such as this. (The video actually is a FLV flash video that you do not
see in the source code. The SWF is just a container file that contains
the control bar, large start button etc that links to the FLV that
gets downloaded to the browser temp cache and can be played nearly at
once if you have a fast enough connection - high broadband in this
example.) Notice the object file just under the ActiveX one for IE.
Most other browsers do not support ActiveX, but this ordinary object
will work on most of them. This is enclosed in a not IE code so this
path is taken by all browsers other than IE. This not IE code has to
be modified a bit from the simple one shown at Microsoft, because the
Microsoft one will not validate at W3C and the one used will.
Microsoft has several other IE only conditional comments, including
ones that consider the version of IE.
