The dimensions that you use in the object and embed tag define the area that the flash movie will occupy in the HTML document. Whether these dimensions are expressed as pixels or percentages, they relate to the first movie that you insert into that space. That first movie is usually defined in the object and embed tags. If you load in additional content into that movie's space it will be applied to the size of the original image area as you've seen.
If you really need to load in a larger movie, then your best option is enlarge the size of the original movie's stage area. You could mask the size discrepancy through creative use of the background colors of both your movie and the HTML document.
I tried setting the stage of the base movie larger, and making the flash movie transparent in the areas that it doesn't have any contents. But what I end up with on the pages with a smaller clip is a blank space where I can see when I scroll down the page. This is not that much of a problem since the movie's transparent and it just shows the web page's background, but it would be nice to only "crop" out the area that has contents so the pointless scrollbar won't appear. Is there any code in actionscript or html to do this? Or any alternative methods that you can think of?
Nothing comes readily to mind.
