I shot some HD 1080i video, imported and edited it. The finished video (about 7 minutes) looks great. I'm trying to save it as a QT movie in the highest resolution possible for Youtube. I use expert settings, but it won't do a complete compression. Gets about 10 seconds in and the video cuts out. Audio is still there.

Any idea what I'm missing?

Are you saying that the export does complete, but the video stops about 10 seconds in and the audio is playable to the end of the 7 minute sequence?

A problem I've seen randomly is the export not completing. That is different from my question above. This has been fixable by adjusting the data bit rate up or down.

Maybe my iMovie Export Guide can give you some ideas.
