flash movie file size

I have a video (Windows Media) that is about 5 MB in size. When I import it into a Flash movie (that otherwise has nothing else in it) the size of the Flash file (.fla) jumps up to about 27 MB. The import settings for the video are:

Quality: 75
Keyframe Interval: 24
Scale: 100%

synchronize the frame rates, I also import the audio.

Does anyone know why this would increase the file size.

Btw, when I publish the Flash movie (.swf) the file size is 7 MB, still significantly bigger.

Also, if I try deleting the embedded video from the movie, the file size doesn't change.

Any ideas?

Hello

well, if you can convert the windows media video in a quick time video an then import ir in the flash, you'll get better results.

May be this white paper from macromedia helps...
