If you export as MP3 the file size will be reduced but only those with
Flash 4 plugins will hear the sound.

You can adjust the settings in Flash (Export, Publish or for individual
sounds in the Library) to reduce the Sample Rate and/or Bits Rate in
ADPCM sound or Bit Rate for MP3 sound. This will reduce the sound
quality but it may be acceptable depending on the sound. In the Library
you can not onlt set the sound individually but test the sound and see
the file size reductiom (or increase) based on your settings.

For Internet use always leave MP3 Quality as Fast......

Coming Soon Flash 4 Web Animation F/X and Design
