Is it possible to test the users bandwidth speed and return that speed? In other words when a user goes to my site is there any way I can have a flash out put the speed? (200/kbs)
not with flash but you could do it with a program called browser hawk. It would require a dynamic page that sends data back to flash. Or i guess you could build a preloader that would “count” how fast a user was getting that file. The problem with that is that it wouldn’t be accurate and if the file was in their browser’s cache it would say that their connection speed was something absurd.
