Does anyone know how to change the size of the text in the FLVCaptioning component?

I have been wrestling with this for a while. It seems that the type style can be set in the captions XML file so embedding fonts is a problem. I tried device fonts with no luck. I put the text field inside of movie clip and tried to scale that clip.

Here is a really cool sample I found today that does just that..

Thanks for the reply.

This article looks like it shows how to a caption at a particular size. This is worked out with the FLVCaptioning component. What I would like to do is change the size of the caption text while the movie is playing back.

My specific problem is to set the size of the text when the movie goes into fullscreen mode. I ended up solving the problem by wrapping the caption TextField in a MovieClip and scaling that.
