Problems embedding .avi movie in Firefox (white borders)
Hi all,

I hope someone can help me with this one as I've drawn a blank.

I am trying to get the following embedded avi. movie to look right in Firefox (2.0) on the Mac. The movie plays fine. However, I get ugly white borders to the left and right when playing:

The same page works fine in 1E6+, FF 2.0+ on a PC and also in Safari on the Mac. It's only FF on the Mac that I have a problem with.

Here is the code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "">
<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">

<META name="description" content="">
<META name="keywords" content="">

<body id="reeling">

ANY help would be very much appreciated.
