Hi there,

You should be able to detect whether the user has Flash installed with some JavaScript. I have an example of how this can be done here:

Are you going to be using RTMP or HLS for streaming? I ask because I would very much recommend using HLS for streaming as it would not require Flash in most browsers (with support for Firefox and IE coming soon) and browsers are starting to automatically block Flash content from playing.

Thank you!
