Final DVD made in iDVD skips when played back

Made slide show in Final Cut Express.  Exported as a QT movie and placed it in iDVD.  When I play it back it pauses and skips in certain spots.  I also have video on this movie and it paused on it also. 

The usual causes would be poor media (like Memorex or TDK) and/or burning at a high sped (8X or higher).  Use Maxell or Verbatim and burn at a max of 4X.

  • DVDs made in iDVD won't play on a Mac

    I've made a fair share of dvds from DVDSP and iDVD (version 7.0.4) but a few days ago I tried playing one that was created in iDVD on my computer (in the same drive that burned it) and it wouldn't recognize the disc. I tried several other dvds and they're spit back out too (all of them play fine on a standard dvd player). At this point, none of the dvds I've made from iDVD will play on my computer, while the dvds made from DVDSP seem to play just fine.
    It seems odd that a dvd won't play on the very same drive that burned it. Does Apple do this intentionally? I need to copy one of the discs, but that won't happen until the computer recognizes it. Is there a workaround?

    Thanks for the help. I looked into all these possible issues:
    The drive itself works fine. Tested about 15 "homemade" discs and they all played normally.
    I don't think it's the DVD brand. The at-fault dvds are Panasonic but my other Panasonic-burned dvds work okay. And they're all DVD-Rs.
    I have 30g of hard disk space.
    I checked the burn speed and it is set at the default ("Maximum Possible"). I've used this setting on my other DVDs which play fine, but maybe it could be the culprit?
    The only other issue I could figure out is that the DVDs that won't play all have the same iDVD menu template. Perhaps there is a glitch with that menu?

  • Disc I Made With iDVD Will Not Play Back in DVD Player

    I used iDVD to burn DVDs I made with iMovie. The DVDs play back without problem on my home DVD player, but when I try to play them on my Mac G5, the computer keeps ejecting the discs. How can this be? Sureley the discs are compatible with my system or they would not be burnable. Please help!

    Hi r
    No this is an often described problem.
    To make a DVD playable to as many devices as possibly there are some alt ways
    to go,.
    1. From iMovie to iDVD: I don't use the Share/Export to iDVD from within iMovie.
    I drop my movie project icon (with a Star on it) into the open window in iDVD.
    2. After done necessary adjustments I go to File/Save as a Disk Image.
    3. This disk image I burn with Roxio Toast™ but You can also use Apple Disk Util tool.
    4. AT AN AS SLOW speed as possibly eg x1, x2 or x4 => Less errors in burn process.
    5. I use Verbatim DVD-R. There are other High Quality brands - this I use.
    DVD+R or +/- RW I don't use !!
    This DVD should play on nearly all devices.
    Yours Bengt W

  • CD-Rs I burn on my iMac skip when played back

    Hi there, when I create songs in Garageband and then "send to iTunes" and burn the disc, many of the songs skip randomly. I've tried playing back the disc in multiple stereos and computers, and it's the same thing. The discs are not scratched. What could be the problem?

    Two things to try:
    Unless you're using a high quality brand, change the brand you're using (the Superdrives are very finicky about the media - mine only likes Verbatim), and
    burn at the slowest speed available (which cuts down on burn errors).

  • DVDs made in iDVD won't play on same computer

    Why is it that every DVD I make in iDVD burns fine but will not play on the computer?
    They play fine on DVD players but not on the iMac that made them.
    On the iMac it just says the disc is blank, but it is not and plays fine on a DVD player.

    Thanks for the help. I looked into all these possible issues:

  • MY IPOD SKIPS WHEN PLAYING SONGS

    MY IPOD SKIPS WHEN PLAYING SONGS AND THE SOUND GOES IN AND OUT. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    Is the Battery level is low?
    The harddisk might be dying, run the disk diagnostic, the procedure is
    http://www.methodshop.com/gadgets/ipodsupport/diagnosticmode/index.shtml
    if it is too technical for you, but it does gives you the condition of your harddisk.
    What's happening is that some songs are on bad cluster, which need to be moved or reallocate to good cluster.
    To fix it in Windows simply run
    chkdsk drive: /R /F
    where drive: is the iPod drive ID. D: or E:
    in Mac run Diskutilty -> FirstAid -> repair.
    Good luck!

  • Shadowy jerky effect on slo-mo shots when played back on television monitor

    Has anybody else noticed this problem?
    When playing back a movie edited in imovie 4 on a DVD-R through a television monitor all the slo-mo shots have a shadowy jerky effect on them. They don't play smoothly as they do when the same DVD-R is played back on my computer monitor.
    Any suggestions on how to fix this would be appreciated. It ruins the whole effect of the slo-mo.
    Emac 1.25GHz PowerPC G4   Mac OS X (10.3.9)  

    Did iMovie prompt you to render the project when sending to iDVD. Slo-mo needs the deinterlacing that process does -- otherwise the output is jerky on a TV.
    See also a related iMovie 4-6 bug you should be aware of:

    And besides, you get better quality slo-mo with 3rd party apps:

  • Export QuickTimes freeze and skip while playing back

    I’m new to Motion, and growing concerned. I’ve purchased and learned Motion for a specific job. I’ve built some very cool elements with many layers. I’ve grown accustom to the slow performance, skipping etc. while working on the project. That’s ok.
    What concerns me is exporting. When exporting Draft or Best versions, most all the time the movies freeze or skip while playing back, either in QuickTime or Final Cut Pro
    When exporting I select Export, as QuickTime Movie, using current project settings
    I’m using Motion 3.02-HDV 1080-60i project, 10 seconds long
    4x 2.5 Ghz G5
    5 GB Ram
    I would appreciate and advice or tricks to be able to export a decent version of what I’ve built.
    Thanks!

    Andy, thanks for your help.
    I have 30 gigs available on the hardrive. The file exports are usually less than a gig. I have a GeForce 6600 card.
    When I select export setting from “current project settings” it uses the Animation codec and plays with freezes and skips. But with in that video that does play well, it plays very clean and clear.
    When I change the export to 1080i60 at best quality, I’m guessing it uses the HDV codec? It does play back with out the skips and freezes. But it looks like **** with horizontal lines in titles stripes etc.
    Is there a way to make the 1080i60 video playback clean?
    Thanks!

  • Audio Clicking and broken up when playing back from timeline

    Can anyone please give me some advice about a possible solution to a continuing audio problem I am having when using the Tascam Fireone with Final Cut Pro 5.1.4. (Fireone working well with Logic 7 on the same machine)
    The Symptoms are as follow:
    When playing back edited clips or music from the timeline there are constant ugly pops and clicks.
    Any audio or video and audio even with differing sample rates when played in the source monitor are unaffected and play perfectly.
    I have tried everything I know and am now at a total loss as to what to try next.
    Tascam's so called support ignore any communication from me about it, as do most people on this forum.
    Any suggestions welcome.
    Thank you

    I think it is a driver issue between Tascam and Apple Firewire connections
    It's all very frustrating as Tascam just do not respond to support questions well.
    Thanks for your comments, it's back to the drawing board with the Fireone and Final Cut Pro, a great shame because it's cheap and very good with Logic.

  • CS4: Hangs When Playing Back Stills

    Can anyone reproduce this:
    Sequence is AVCHD, 720p... I've inserted a couple of pictures from my digital camera along with a couple of short movie clips (camera: Panasonic DMC-FT1)...
    After inserting a couple of stills into the sequence, when playing back those stills I can't stop playback until playhead has either reached one of the movie clips of end of sequence.
    Is this a bug of the current version (version 4.2.1)?

    I have sporadically seen a very similar problem with stills in Premiere
    CS4 when editing both mini DV footage and P2 footage.  It seems to
    be related to project complexity and not to a particular type of footage.
    It seems to happen more often if I have a lot of large stills that are scaled
    and panned as opposed to stills that are exactly frame sized.
    When the problem happens, killing Premiere and restarting usually
    seems to work ok, so it is not clear what triggers the bug.
    I know nothing about the internal architecture of Premiere but it is
    clear that there are multiple threads at work when playing from the
    timeline and I am guessing that something about playing a lot
    of stills causes the thread
    that is responsible for listening to the user to "block" forever (wait for
    some event that never will happen).  So the player thread(s) keep on
    playing but you can't stop them.  Its unfortunately an all too common
    type of bug in complex software and goes by the colorful name of
    "deadly embrace" or deadlock.
    I have mostly avoided this problem by preparing sequences of stills
    in separate projects and importing them into a single final project
    near the end of my editing process so as to mimimize the exposure
    to situations likely to cause the problem.

  • I have recently upgraded my iMac Intel G5 iSight to OS 10.6.8 and now the internal mic does not work with skype or facebook. I can here static when playing back clips. Do I need to update firmware or reload old sys parts

    I have recently upgraded my iMac Intel G5 iSight (iMac5,1) to OS 10.6.8 and now the internal mic does not work with skype or facebook. I can here static when playing back clips. Do I need to update firmware or reload old system parts. I have zapped PRAM. The blue indicator in system audio panel will appear for a second as I slide the bar for internal mic but then it disappears. Is there a fix?

    The sound seems very faint but can here static on playback.

  • Picture breakup when playing back recordings of HD...

    As above really, only noticed this since the latest software change but my be coincidental.
    I have recently had picture breakup when playing back reordings on BBC1HD and Ch4HD, when I watch the channels live there is no evidence of the breakup and if I check the signal strength on both channels I am getting Signal strength of 78% and quality of 100%
    Anybody else experience this or have any suggestions for solutions please?
    Thanks

    I think that is what he is saying Alex...
    If you think about what I tested, the model seems pretty right...  Delete the room, it does not delete the file from webdav...  So, when the room is re-created, it will play back original content so looks like they are not storing room historical data, i.e. is there a recording, how long etc....
    I think it is an great solution to be able to remove completed rooms and FMS pick the old room up from webdav on the fly.  Seems the most logical option.
    Nigel, I don't suppose there is any solution of sending the recording to Amazon S3 or other cloud resources rather than the webdav folder?  I think, for those with thousands of recordings, storage could become an issue...  I have looked at the possibility of mapping my box to the S3 bucket but then I am reteiving it to send it to you every time a file is requested which could cause bandwidth issues...
    Maybe integrating some sort of API where when setting up the recording, we provide specifics (i.e. an authentication token), to allow the file to be placed there?  Or maybe a slightly different approach would be to provide a cloud front url for picking up the files and the transfer could go on behind the scenes....  Also with the cloud front, distribution would be much quicker as the files could end up closer to the location of the FMS which in turn would create a richer experience with less waiting...
    Anyway, maybe you can advise.
    Thanks for your time.

  • My "older" songs stutter when played back

    my pc is only 6 months old, but the first songs i downloaded from the itunes store
    "stutter" when played back. they don't stutter on my ipod, and the more recenlty
    downloaded songs are also ok. i have deleted them, reloaded from the ipod, updated
    itunes, all to no avail. any ideas?

    First a correction. I am using the latest version of FCP – 5.
    Regarding the encoding, I have tried going from native HDV MPEG-2 to H.264 at 720P from 10 to 4 MB at 24, 30 and 29.97. The Mac seems to play everything back very well, but most PCs (the latest IBM T 40 – 43 series laptops) a couple of Dell desk tops (2.6 GHZ with 64 and 128 MB graphic cards) and a 3.2 GHz Shuttle PC with a 128 MB graphic card (that we routinely use to decode four MPEG-4, 4CIF images simultaneously and display on a 42” ED Plasma) choke/stutter to varying degrees with processor utilization hitting 100%.
    So, the real issue here is what is the difference between a 720p trailer that I can download from Apple and what I can output using Compressor 2 at a similar data rate – other than the frame rate?
    And why does the Compressor output stutter on most PCs?
