    I just downloaded adobe's 'wallaby' application to convert flash video to html5 video.
    The conversion was done, but I really cannot understand, why a 65k swf video is now a 700k video! Bigger even than the original fla file!!!

    I want to use html video in order to be able to deliver content compatible with ipad/iphones but I cannot accept a 65k video to be converted to 700k video.

    Am I doing something wrong? Is it normal? Any suggestions?

    are you simply trying to put a video online without using flash, or are you trying to convert a .FLA animation into something that can be viewed in HTML?

    If I do so, which line of code would be suitable to insert it in a web page?
    Is this video format browser-compatible?

    Uploading it to youtube sounds a good idea.
    But, how can I have control of it?
    For example I want the video to play all the time, 'loop'.
    Can I achieve it, using a youtube video?
