place this code in the first frame of the movie to make it a fullscreen:

fscommand("fullscreen", "true");

you would have to use Javascript in conjunction with a getURL(); to make the window maximize.

you create an Autorun.inf file by opening notepage and type the following:


and then save the file as AUTORUN.inf

the autorun file will open the moviename.exe file ...

here is the javascript to auto maximize the window...

<script language="JavaScript">

if (document.all) {
else if (document.layers||document.getElementById) {
if (top.window.outerHeight<screen.availHeight||top.window.outerWidth<screen.availWidth){
top.window.outerHeight = screen.availHeight;
top.window.outerWidth = screen.availWidth;

just place this code in between the head tags of your html file...
