I have been trying to get the bugs out of my DVD project for a week now.  I have one last movie, 30 min. 13 chapters, that I need to make sure works in iDVD, before I add the rest of the movies to the project that do not have audio/video sync problems. 


I use "share" to import it into iDVD.  Then I hit the play arrow to take it from the edit mode to play mode.   Once in play mode, Now, as soon as I hit play or scene selection, this blue MultiMediaImporter.Oxygene folder pops up and does nothing. 


Normally, I would ignore it, but I've found that when it pops up, it must be telling me there is something wrong with iDVD.  Because I've tried 3 times, "sharing" the movie to iDVD,  to check my project.  And it always has the sound/video  out of sync towards the end of the movie??? 


I've read some posts about changing the codec and some confusing number codes or something.  but, all of my other movies that I am going to put in the project, worked fine in iDVD, when i checked audio/video on each one separately. 

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), IMovie 6 / iDVD 6

    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.

    I have iDVD when I click "share"

    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.
