So a client of mine wants his homepage to start off something like this: http://www.roche-bobois.com/#/en-CA/home (It's basically a Flash intro that starts with a vector drawing of a furniture showroom that eventually transitions into the image of the actual showroom).
Given that some of his users will be using an iPad to view his site, what are some of the alternatives that other developers here use?
Option 1: With PHP, detect if the user is using an iPad/iPhone by checking their user agent string. If they are using a mobile device, then forward to m.abccompany.com (mobile version of the site).
Option 2: Convert the Flash video to MP4 or AVI and then embed that, which would allow all users to view his site.
Any suggestions if either of these approaches are a good idea?
