I am trying to get a flash movie (.swf file) to appear larger. I am embedding the movie using CMS pages and I am TRYING to style it with CSS (with no luck so far)
Unlike my PNG/JPEG files that appear at the same scale that I build them to be- my .SWF file comes in at only a fraction of it's actual size. I am told this is normal for this format and that css can be used to govern the scaling. Is this true?
I am hoping to come up with CSS that will allow me to enter a percentage for height & width. (so I can skew the movies if needed).

When using the CMS system,, I have an option to "upload" the SFW file to a cloud server. (this is where all of my images and files used in my CMS system are managed). to be more specific - I'm not coding this by hand... I am using the user-interface provided in the CMS system. It has no over riding values.
_This is the CODE surrounding the movie when placed:_ (according to my developer tools)

Those two values (150 x 150) are coming from the "editor"/user-interface. There are actually options to set the width and height of the SWF file(default set to 150) when I insert the SWF; but they are having no impact on the scale of the movie. I was told this was because SFW files need to be defined with CSS. I was under the impression that these values are being used since there was no existing CSS for this SFW object.
I was hoping to generate the CSS rule and have it over ride the malfunctioning scaling tool's info. Is that possible or am I heading down the wrong road?
