1 ) Try to use a black background for your whole HTML webpage
2) Convert your flash file into transparent background
1) Verify if you have inserted the SWF inside a table (1x1) if so, click once on the embeded swf and choose in properties the background color to black
Good luck !
Html background is all black. That's how I noticed the white space.
The SWF is publishing larger than it's import size. About 1/2" is being added to the right and bottom on publish.
Tried the transparent background, no difference. Running a test in FC shows that the image on the screen is still larger than it's import size.
I have to get rid of the extra space, rather than masking it, because I center vertically and horizontally. It's really noticeable.
can you give me a link to see your code ? be well..
I just noticed something curious.
If I "play" the flash movie in Dreamweaver, I don't get the border. In Dreamweaver > in 'Design View', the image is obviously centered with none of the extra space.
It only appears when run in my browser (IE 8). So it has to be in the html or a supporting script.
This isn't really a fix, but in my html code I changed the width and height of the Flash object incrementally untill the white space disappeared and that made it appear correctly. The published SWF is 1024x625 and I changed that to 985x570 or something in the html code.
