I have managed to successfully open a new window containing a swf file.The problem is now that for some reason the quality of this swf file is very poor.

Does anyone know why this is happening and how it can be rectified?

A pop up window should have no effect on it.

Can you give some more details about how and what you used to create the SWF file in the first place. Which version of flash does it use? Does it contain Flash Video?

Hi Alan,

The swf was created to a certain size. When you open it in a window with no html around it (like http://mycoolstuff.com/mycoolest.swf) the player scales itself to fit the entire window. I suspect the window size doesn't correspond to the "intended" size of the swf. Does it look kind of distorted? That might be why.

If you have the .fla file, you can know what the intended size is. From there, you can decide to embed the swf in some html (that explicitly tells the browser's player what size to display the swf), or size the pop-up window to fit the swf. If by "open a new window" you mean a pop-up window, that is.

Hmm. A pop-up window with Flash in it? This wouldn't be an annoying ad that you're building now, is it?

But how did the elephant get like that? What did you do? I think all we can do now is read this tiny ad:
