Need I say more? This is from a cookie-cutter Wordpress site with some flash mixed in with a template. The flash was only added to make a little transitional animation for the navigation bar.
We need to educate web designers on how they can break free from their Flash comfort zone, save a few hundred bucks in software licenses every year, and make their websites load two to three times faster (not to mention, more quickly and without requiring buggy third party extensions).
95% of Flash use is avoidable and unnecessary, in my opinion.
I think it means your actionscript programming is crap.
No matter how efficient your actionscripting is, the .flv file itself is already overhead, and will take up a lot more space than a few lines added to your sites' minified CSS or JS file.
