It is because in your publish settings you have an <OBJECT> param called

SALIGN

By default, I think the value is LT. Set it to Default. Default centers the movie and crops the edges if the browser window is smaller than the movie.

I hope this helps!

in the HTML tab, you have HTML alignment, which should be set to 'default.' Also set Flash alignment to "center" and "center" for horizontal and vertical.

Infcat when I started to buid my movie, I opened new, I was not knowing but later on when I click Modify>Moview I saw. Width=550.8 px, Height=438.45 px
And my monitor is at 800x600, do u think that might be the error. If so what should I set as the width and Height so that movie covers the whole of screen and also centre at 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768.

Cover the entire screen?

Ah, I see.

Once again, in Publish settings, in the HTML tab, click the Scale drop-down list. There is an option for exact fit. This means that the movie will fit your window regardless of what size the movie or the window is. Show All simply shows the full movie at its dimensions in the window.

Choose Exact Fit, this should solve it =)

What is the best size that u would recommend that I made the size of my movie as  I designed it at  537x439 , is it OK and now just choose EXACT FIT or some other modificatios are required??

SuperMarioCommented:
Any dimension will work because EXACT FIT will resize the movie to fit the window. No resizing on your part is required.

I hope this helps =)

I have found out that by using 100% from Dimension Setting in HTML Publish and Setting Default (Show All) from Scale the movie Fits in at all resolution but at the same time if u Check the IE5 with normal tool bar size the portion between Toolbar and Status bar is such that Width is 1.82 Larger than Height. So only if u set ur movie size, with that portion than at Left and right side of ur movie in browser, will be fine othr wise there will be at least 1.5 error. NOW my question is I have already made my movie how to change the dimensions so that all the object do not loose their shape( i.e don’t get skewed  because of changing height. Hope u understand what all was wrong with my problem. So how to rectify that ???
