This method is dependant on flash, while the other is PHP. I feel that 
the one that runs PHP is more practical because it can be integrated 
easily with Drupal, and will be compatible with all users who run 
Drupal. With flash, it throws another requirement in the mix, and I 
feel, at a users end, it will be much better to use the PHP file.

Any ideas on how to implement it?
