Might be hard because flash has limit of 16.000 frames and it
won't allow you export
timeline beyond that number. And with Video, it's not hard to
reach that number.
In case of regular timeline, it's easy to work around it
using multiple movie clips
or SWF files etc... But video being single file it's more
complicated. Beside, no one
can play SWF on desktop unless the user has the Flash
authoring tool, because the standalone
player comes exclusively with Flash program. So you will
still need to
give extra file like HTML for them to open it in browser.
I would suggest providing different format for online
playback and different for download.
Download regular zipped MPEG-2 or AVI, common standards that
will run on any computer.
FLV and SWF won't play as standalone.
