You could try putting it in a table, setting the table size to 100% width and height.

Is there more that I have to do on the Flash side?  I tired putting it in a table with width=100% and there was no difference except the alignment at times.  What I have is a flash movie that is 600x450 this works well with monitor res of 1024x768 but I want the movie to become larger on highter res screens and smaller on lower res screens.  
I know on the Flash side of things when you publish you can set the size attributes to a set pixel size or a percentage.  However, since I want to retain the aspect ratio I think I need to do something more...

In the html page, check the paramters for the flash movie - there will be one there called scale. Change that from noscale to default(showall). In the meantime check out this link

Hey,

For those who were able to figure this out, can I ask where exactly would you place the SCALE property in my flex application? A sample code would be very very useful please.

Because I'm new to flex, events, etc... I don't understand how and where to use the SCALE property. Please help!
