What is the souce of the movie? First use the Share ➙ Media Browser menu option and add the movie to iDVD from the Media Browser/Movies pane in iDVD. The Share ➙ iDVD route degrades the movie quality over the other route.
MultiMediaImporter.Oxygene is a plugin in the iDVD applicaiton itself. I'm guessing here but you might try running Disk Utility to repair disk permissions. Other than that I'd try reinstalling iDVD from the soruce it came from originally.
Also if you want to confirm that the movie will work before buring to disk follow this workflow:
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.

thanks, the source of the movie is my Canon camera which is HD. I have iDVD 6...so when I click "share" I don't get a media browser option, I only get iDVD/iWeb/Garageband, and a few more. and yes, thanks to you, I use disc image all the time now, to save on wrongly burned DVDs.
I ran disk utility and hit "verify disk permissions" it said everything is ok. I then hit "repair disk permissions" and it was fine.
I took my July-Sep movie and made a new one with just July footage to see if length was the problem. I shared July to iDVD and then hit the play arrow to verify. And again, as soon as I hit either play or scenes, the multi media folder came on again.....
wow, this is frustrating... anybody have any tips...

From what applicagtion are you tryintg to use Share? What version of iMovie do you have? If it's iMovie 6 HD all you need to do is close iMovie and drag the iMovie project file into the open iDVD window. That will import the movie.

I have iMovie 6 and am sharing from there to iDVD 6. I have tried dragging it has the same effect.
