Hi all,

What is that folder "MultiMediaImporter.oxygene" that pops up whenever I use iDVD08?
It just sits on the dock and doesn't do anything. Right click says "application not responding".

Is that common or my iDVD has some problem?

Sorry if this is an old question but using the search I couldn't find any topic related to it.

Thanks

    Yup .... I've seen this issue before. Take a look at John Gawler's post in the following thread. Hopefully it will help you also but if not just come on back.

    I have the same issue on my MacBook Pro; I just noticed it today. Did you find the codec? ... it is not on my Mac. Also, do you have any Adobe CS4 programs loaded on your iMac? I do and I am wondering if that is causing the issue.

    Thanks.

    MultiMediaImporter.oxygene folder stopped popping up and bouncing in the dock on iDVD8 start, when I uninstalled Perian 1.1.2. Guess I will wait for the next version.

    I bet Perian could be the problem .....




    That would be my guess also.

    Yes, Perian IS the problem! It tried basically everything as deleting iDVD, reinstalling it, deleting iDVD themes, updating OS X, deleting different plists.

    A simple update of Perian to 1.1.3 finally did it. No problems anymore.

    I confirm, the newest update from Perian (1.1.3) fixed the issue.

    I am now very happy!

    This may not help but ... I've been having negative experiences adding .mov files, encoded using H.264 from FCE 4.01, into iDVD and I've also been getting this 'MultiMediaImporter.oxygene' folder popping up too.

    The .mov assets in my iDVD project that were encoded with H.264 ran very badly, choppy etc, so I looked up the details of my version of Perian (1.1.2) and it said something about only using the H.264 codec with AVI files. I was exporting my videos wrapped as .MOV.

    I changed H.264 to something else like DV-PAL and everything is playing nice now.

    I hope this is of some help (sorry if its not!).
