    I have a page with a full flash content. The size of the flash files are more than 1.5 MB in one page.
    So it will take some times to load the page properly.
    Is there a way to compress these flash files, with no effect for the page?
    It will be more fun for the user if I could reduce the loading time.

    thanks b4.

    Unfortunately, I do not believe you can compress flash without reducing the quality whilst keeping it as flash.

    I believe the servers already use mod_gzip to compress content for browsers that support compression, but I expect flash files won't compress very much using this technique as they use compression internally. When you author a flash file, there are various steps you can take to reduce the size of the file, and you can also try an optimizer, though the latter will probably involve a reduction in quality. Don't discount reducing quality, as the result may still look good enough.
