Any way to get a large .swf to display when scrolled?

So, this is annoying -- hopefully it only affects a small number of people, but 14% of monitors are still 1024x768, and with the default bars on IE 8, that 768 is much reduced...

Please don't blame me for the intro movie, or the Flash, but here's the page: http://www.squeezepod.com/ie-fix.html

If you have a short browser window, and need to scroll down to see all of the page, the Flash doesn't show up -- only the background (and the Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Email buttons, hopefully; they're in the HTML).

Anyone know a way to fix this? Thanks!

Remove HTML scroll bar by setting CSS

<style media="screen" type="text/css">
body { margin: 0px; overflow:hidden; scroll:no;}
</style>

Hi dgofman --

problem is, I need that scrollbar because with shorter browser windows you can't see the last few sentences of the text.

Any other thoughts?

In this case you have to fix a Flash/SWF size

@amateur6:

I will recommend play SWF inside iframe in this case you will get full page with footer what is high important for you and user will scroll Flash context inside iframe in this case you don't need main page scrolling. Unfortunately who designed this page made many mistakes and this solution will be the best for you

Do you know the best example is yourtube. Any youtube videos has feature to share a video click on this button and Embed

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/T9ETxBHYBAU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

It's simple and working cross browser :)
