View Full Version : I Movie sound problem

08-02-2010, 04:46 AM
Can anyone please help?
i have an iMac G5 PowerMac 2.1Ghz with 1GB memory.
Running Leopard and iLife 09.
I had an intermittent sound problem which is now permanent.
When I edit a project in iMovie everything is fine including the sound.
When I prepare it for iDVD there is no sound in the iDVD preview or on the finished DVD.
If I add music in iDVD that works fine but no soundtrack.
iDVD works fine as there is still sound on old DVD projects I have.
If I try to save as a QuickTime movie instead it seems to start saving okay and then the time band just keeps getting longer and longer and it never finishes.
I can however save it as an MPEG-4 video file for watching on my ipod and the sound is fine.
Could the problem be with QuickTime and if so, any ideas how to fix?

Many thanks,

There are a few rare instances where having Flip4Mac WMV Player (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/wmcomponents.mspx) and Perian (http://perian.org) installed can cause these sorts of problems with iDVD. You might try disabling them if you have them installed.

Thanks Chas but I have neither installed. You think other non-Apple plugins could be the problem?
