What I don't use is Exact Fit, since there is no one aspect ratio that
all browes open up to unless you do full screen there will always be
shape distortion for some people if you use Exact Fit in a regular
browser window.
At Flashcentral we use 1150x620 which is an Aspect ratio of 1.85 to 1.
550x300 is about the same at 1.83 to 1.
Full Screen is 1.33 to 1.
To determine the aspect ratio divide the width by the height.
