H.264 .mov works fine in Flash. There's no reason to convert to if that's your source. .swf is the player/wrapper you create when building your interactivity.

Hi Craig.

Thank you for your comment.

Are you telling me that I can open a .mov in flash and start to add interactions, buttons etc?

Yes but the .mov must be H.264. It's the only .mov codec that works natively in Flash. If the file is another codec all you have to do is convert to H.264 though. Just make sure you target the data rate you want but Quicktime Pro, Final Cut Pro, even MPEGStreamclip (free) can do that. Flash became officially compatible with H.264 .mov in Dec 2007.
