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!

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