Do You use iMovie (version ?) or FinalCut (version ?) ?
• iMovie'08 to 11
- I do not "Share to iDVD" but "Share to Media Browser" and as Large or Medium (Medium especially if Audio behaves bad in Large - can do so)
• FinalCut Express/Pro (not Pro-X - have non)
- Save as QuickTime .mov
- NO QuickTime Conversion - IMPORTANT !
- Not as selfcontained - not important but saves time and space
I'm very specific in what kind of Audio I use.
• only .aiff 16-bit 48kHz or 44.1kHz (from Audio CDs)
• .mp3 and all other ailient formats I convert to .aiff
• iTunes - I collect needed audio into a New Playlist - BURN this as one .aiff Audio CD (Not .mp3) - the files on this CD I use in my movie project's
By doing like this I have very very few Audio problems (at all)
Happy New Year !
Yours Bengt W

Also follow this workflow to help ensure the best quality final product:
Once you have the project as you want it save it as a disk image via the File ➙ Save as Disk Image menu option. This will separate the encoding process from the burn process.
To check the encoding mount the disk image and launch DVD Player and play it. If it plays OK with DVD Player the encoding was good.
Then burn to disk with Disk Utility or Toast at the slowest speed available (2x-4x) to assure the best burn quality. Always use top quality media: Verbatim, Maxell or Taiyo Yuden DVD-R are the most recommended in these forums.
Thank you, OT, thank you very much,
I followed to all of your points since few years, the hardest to me is to get good DL DVDs… (Verbatim, this is the one I can buy), once Apple had it in its store. Finally burning happens best with the lowest speed, since the answer by Bengt I see, Disk utulity has the possibility of lowest speed.
Single layer DVDs I let „burn“ as image, longer DVDs as folder to disk,… this is a hint from the application, too.
Another bottle neck for me is the tramondous need of storage.
Thank you for your post,

Bengt, reading your mailI I thaught first it would be a thing like Hurz and Pfurz but in Webbrowseer I saw it is a normal setting. This - may be - I have seen earlier and forgotten because usually I „burn“ to disk first. Maybe it reflects to „burn to disk“ too?
It is helpful for me because I am to remember to look closer to settings anf further, not in iDVD, to look for new functions in new versions.
