Video size problem in flash - Macromedia Flash

The size of my video file is 5MB (.wmv) , as soon as I import it to flashMX04, the fla file size becomes 69MB and the output swf file is 25MB. Can someone explain to me how can I have a smaller swf file and why a 5mb video file turns out in flash 25mb? TIA...

    Depends on the compression settings. Anytime I use video I process it
    in two steps. First with Vegas, (a high powered video editor)
    rendering to WMV at a moderate bitrate (1 MBPS) and frame size of
    320x240. Then I inport into Flash. I start compression at 90%, see how
    it looks and how large the file is then keep increasing the
    compression to reduce file size without destroying video quality. I
    usually end up with a SWF file that runs about 4-5 MB per minute. The
    Flash file size is in the 5-6 MB range. You don't need Vegas, any
    decent editor that can vary the bitrate will do. I never tried taking
    a raw video file and letting Flash alone compress it since I always
    seem to be cutting down the file, its faster and simpler to edit in a
    real video editor application.
