The thing that you might be facing problem with, can be one or all of the following:

1. While experimenting you might be creating symbols and then ending up not using them. Thus your library would have more symbols then you are using actually. This would increase the file size.

2. Similarly you might be using one symbol more then one place and re-creating that symbol every time you need it. The best way is to use the symbols from the library.

another rhing to keep in mind is that use less of bitmap images like .jpg , .gif, .bmp etc.

If you intend to use these images then restrict their movement to minimum.

Yes of cource you can load parts of the movie and keep playing them while the rest of the file is being loaded.

For that you don't need to break your file into part, just create a preloader and let it do the job for you.

say you have two scenes say, scene 1 and scene 2

Then ceate a preloader that says if last frame of the scene 1 is loaded then go to and play frame1 of scene 1.
This will start your movie as soon as the first scene is loaded while scene2 is still loading in the background.

Hope this helps.
