What are some methods to reduce the size of .swf files. The file is currently about 80 MB and I am trying to optimize it for the web. There are alot of .flvs which are adding to the size of the file. I am currently working on reducing the size of those videos. However, I am not sure if there are settings with in Flash that I can change to reduce the size even further.

Thanks for any advice!

Here's a pretty thorough page by Adobe explaining the methods,

This thread explains that you should load your video into the SWF at runtime (which will reduce the SWF size drastically),
