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...

there is no fscommands in my javascript code above?  are you using it somewhere else?

you can have as many Javascripts on a page as you want...

just place the one I gave you first, and it should relocate the page and make it fullscreen...
