          Well, you haven't really explained much about your movie.

          What is the stage size? What do you have in your library? In the Flash project settings, are you compressing the exported swf? What is the jpeg quality set at (if you have images in this video)? Is the fla document 650mb or the exported swf? Sometimes the library can remain a large file even if you delete some items in the library. I've noticed this when opening a fls document that's (say 4 mb), then without changing anything, I save it as a new name (which means I should have 2 identical copies of the fla), yet the file sizes are completely different.

            Oh sorry

            I dont really know what do you mean by stage size and I would like to know.

            I dont have alot of things in library just some symbols i didnt import anything

            I dont have any images or videos imported and i ddidnt even put the sounds.

            The .Fla file is 650mb and the .swf is 2mb .

            And I did the name thing before actually the file size got smaller but thats

            not the problem the problem is when i open the file my computer becomes

            very slow and even the flash .

            Thank you very much for trying to help :)

                Have you tried a "Save As"? Also, in your Library menu, choose "Select Unused Items", then click the trash can. That will get rid of anything your FLA does not use. Then try "Save As" again.
