The primary factor is the native format. Quicktime is a raster video,
while Flash is a vector animation. Converting between raster and
vector in any format is an image quality killer, so the final .mov or .swf files need to be made from the high-res original source. Anything you find that tries to convert one to the other will not
produce results with decent quality.

That's right, but it's simpler than that: Flash isn't a video stream.

It's like making a PDF that's nothing but an embedded graphic. You can do it, but what's the point? The graphic's now one-off from its native format, and no more usable for the effort.
