How can I replace error msg with "please install flash" for IE users playing HLS

We have a live 24hour HLS stream on our site. Some of our users that are using IE and dont have flash installed are seeing : Error loading player: No Playable sources found

How can I replace that with a message instructing to install flash. I have searched the support questions and someone suggested using :

//add the install flash message code here

However, I dont think an actual error is being triggered in this case. The only alternative I can think of is doing a check if IE/FIREFOX & Flash installed before JW Player is even called but it would be nice to have JWPlayer handle this situation.

You need to add:

fallback: false,

To your player setup.

And then add a message to install flash inside of the <div> that the player replaces.
