Err.. you can't.

That's the simple answer.

Manually by hand (is that redundant or what?), frame by frame making images and importing them into the library and then reverting them to some form of glossless file format only to re animate them agan using tweens and frame by frame animation.

Which would prompt one to ask.. WHY?

im trying to put vids. online, would you suggest i just use the .wmv file itself?

Ahh.. what you want is an FLV converter, not FLA.

FLV (FLash Video) is the output format you need. an fla is the file type associated with Flash that is used to create Flash Movies. Then you publish your FLA into an SWF (ShockWave Flash element) and this is what is uploaded to the server, and what I thought you were after.

Try this link (http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html) or search google for FLV converter software.

Alternatley you can search the Flash thread here, as there were a few posts about this, for other links. I personally don't use FLV so I haven't had a use for any of this software before. Meaning I can't say this one is good or that one is bad, etc.
