If file size really doesn't matter, then why compress at all? Use DV- 
PAL or the like..

I'm no expert on flash video, but I seem to remember that Flash  
initially used the Cinepak codec, and now also supports the H.264  
codec. But QT can't play Flash movies. QT supports Flash files only  
up to Flash 5 and Flash 5 only had very poor support of video.
