    What size?

    Im making a site and i need to know what size (pixels) to make it so that it fits on an average screen? I tried 1024x768 (my res) but it was too big and didnt fit.

    Thanks for any replies!

    I'm against 100% scaling. Movie should be embedded at 750 x 550 in a table to center it.

    Are you using an html to embed your movie or are you linking directly to the .swf?

    Not really! This is used to embed the movie in the html. Then you'll have to modify the html and add a table tag, to center the embedded movie.

    With this a movie of 750 X 550 will appear the same size and centered, no matter what resolution. It will not expand though and will remain a 750 x 550 sized movie.
