PNG Compression for flash

what is the best way to compress png’s for flash movies? I’m doing a flash screensaver for a company and they want it to be 1024x768… crazy right. But they want to keep the file size low.

My big dilemma is that i just need a way to display transparencies and at the same time keep the quality and size of a jpeg.

I like to compress my png in photoshop at maximum and then use a compression of 80 in flash. 80 hardly changes the png quality but still compresses the file a bit.

My images come out to be around 300k each. How much of a difference does the flash compression make?
