    Hello All,

    We normall load a movie on level_1 or any specified level and by default it aligns it to the top left corner. Is there a way I can specify where I want my movie to load on the page.
    I know a way to go about is change the placement of the movie in the file itself so it loads where you want it to load, but I think there should be another way of doing it. My movie is very complex and its not possible to move all the frames. I encountered this problem coz the movie I am trying to load is 640X480 and my movie on the _root.level is 800X600!

    plz help!

    Thanx

    You can either:

    a) Load the movie into a movie clip.

    or

    b) Once the movie has compleately finished loading, you can set the _x and _y coords for the level.

    _level1._x = value;

    Its the same as for an MC, only the movie needs to be completely loaded before you try and change its properties or ir wont work.
