Hey, I just tested something out here, and it workd for me: I didn't let iMovie optimize the video. The unsyncronicity is gone.

I'm having the exact same problem. Any solution yet?

Oh my! I've forgotten to share that I've found a solution!
Just don't let it optimize the video.
Sorry for not relating this. When importing uncheck the box "optimize video". See if it works for you.

You are my new hero! I've had this type of issue with the audio and clips hanging for some time. All manner of advice and fixes. Some would work once but then back to the same issues. Very frustrating.
I looked at my video clips in iPhoto and they are in fact h.264. So in iMovie I selected the 34 clips in my current "movie from ****" and did the Optimization. Seems to take awhile so left it overnight. Today, my movie works as it should! You cannot image my relief!
I suspect that when I initially imported the clips that it may have asked (in iPhoto or iMovie) f I wanted to "optimize" and I did not because I did not know what that would do for me. So it is a self-inflicted wound.

I'm back to major frustration as the next time I played the movie, it did the same thing. Sorry for the post.

Recently... Well for the longest while I have had problems with my videos overall lagging as in iPhotobooth... Then I got a Macbook pro for christmas... There is still lagging with iPhotobooth, but I don't use that anymore. I use quicktime. Yes. Quicktime does work if you want to record without editing, or if you want to NOT import it to iMovie. I tried everything and iMovie just really likes to mess it up... Although if you go to: File > Import from Camera... It should work. I know its a terrible camera, but that is the only solution I have found and my video that I made is completely in sync when I imported it fresh and live like that. I hope this kinda helps you. Sorry. I am going through the SAME problems...

Well, okay. I tried it out. If I use quick time it doesn't work. If I use Photobooth it still doesn't work. So... For some weird reason it does work if I use my iPhone and upload that to the iMovie... There is also the thing of using only opening and making that video on your computer only about less than a minute long and it won't lag as well. Otherwise, I am sooooo close to buying a new camera. My camera had no problems because its being broken itself.

So I'm reading all of this talk about optimization. When I go into Imovie the option to optimize for my video is fadded and it won't let me click it. God I hate imovie, got to be one of the most frustrating pieces of junk there is.
Just trying here to make a simple video that should just be record export and I can't because audio trails off 5 minutes into the video.
