I have imported an flv file to save as a swf. I would like to stop all sounds from the flv file. Anyone know how to do that?

You could always re-encode the flv using FFMPEG from the linux command line...
Once you have ffmpeg installed (http://www.ffmpeg.org) you can simply issue the following command to re-encode with the audio removed from the video stream:
ffmpeg -i /home/somedir/inputfile.flv -an /home/somedir/outputfile.flv

ffmpeg can do a lot more than this too! Convert wmv to flv or mpeg or mov, change size, bitrates, framerates, etc...    http://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-doc.html

Even though this sounds like a commercial for FFMPEG its not, I just love FFMPEG!
