Greetings, I created a small video on Final Cut Pro 6 for our church. I then imported to IDVD for a quick DVD, everything seemed normal, video and audio were great. However, when we went to play it at church, there was no sound. The program that our church tech imported it to was PC based. should I be changing my audio output or something in FCP or IDVD. Please help, for I would like to continue to show videos at our church.

    This problem resides with your PC tech.

     

    Why not simply play the video using a DVD player?

    If the video was made in iDVD, and plays correctly on a set top DVD player, then the problem is the software (or the operator of the software) they are using to ingest the DVD.

     

    Ask the person you are in contact with, if the software they are using can accept your video as a file instead of a finished DVD - and if so, in what file format.

     

    If the formats acceptable to the PC software are standard video formats, you will be able to export your video from FCP as a QuickTime file, then take that exported file into Compressor and convert it to the file format specified for delivery.

    For wmv, you will need to get Flip4Mac Studio:

    for Mpeg2, can use Compressor, it has the presets to make the conversion. You will need to find out if they want an MPEG 2 transport stream and any other requirements.

    Hope it works for you.

    Make sure you take the files on media formatted for PC, as PCs cannot read drives formatted for Mac. A USB stick will likely be formatted correctly to read on the PC.

    Not sure what the story is with later versions of windows, (post xp) but windows xp by default did not come with dvd video playing software.  You had to buy a seperate piece of software or a mpeg2 decoder.  This might be what's causing the problem.
