I've created AVI files using VirtualDubMod
I'm using Riva to create FLV's
Problem: the files are 2.5 the original avi file size
If I tweak the settings to make smaller, then my video will be degraded
What's the best way of keeping the avi as much like the original as possible and making and FLV?
Also: I've seen in a few places VirtualDub mentioned with FLV
Can I use it to make FLV's?
I've done a few searches and all I can fine is info about how to make avi's from FLV's

Nope, virtualdub can't create flv.
Try instead make a mp4 with h264 video and aac audio using for example handbrake or xvid4psp. You can then get lower file size and keep good quality. And, yes it works FINE with flash!
But if you want the old flv with the flv codec you can't do much to improve the quality.
great: i'll try one of those softwares u suggest
thanks a lot
Change the bitrate settings to get lower file size. You can even set the desired output file size in handbrake or xvid4sps(under video encoding settings).
And to get the mp4 to play directly you must change the header in the mp4, xvid4psp does this for you directly, or use MP4 FastStart on the mp4, see http://www.datagoround.com/lab/ .
edit: Remuxing with yamb works similar as mp4 faststart.
xvid4psp maybe was a psp encoder but now it's a very good all-on-one solution that has profiles for most devices and you can adjust all settings manually.
But handbrake (and then yamb or mp4 faststart) is also another good option, both are based on same h264 encoder so you will get same video quality from both.
