Flash 5 Detection

No long Javascript or hefty actionscripting here Very simple on frame 1 of your movie put:

with (_root) {
    gotoAndPlay (3);}

Frame 2 put in a stop command and message saying they need the latest plugin, or redirect them to a different page.

Frame 3 Continue with your movie.

The reason this works is because in Flash 5 they have introduced the "with" command, therefore flash 3 and 4 don't recognise it and ignore it and go onoto frame 2. For flash 5 it jumps to frame 3 and keeps on going. Does it get any simpler
