Somehow I’m back to a previous problem I had when using MP HD (current version 2.1.4t) and using ACC audio files. The solution to use Perian (version 1.0) worked as well as did AC3 Codec.component (v .4). I could use ACC audio files with MP HD and they played fine when exported to QT or Toast.
I am using a PB G4, 10.4.10 with all updates, QT 7.2, Flip4mac 220.127.116.11 (beta).
Here is what I do.
1. Open MP HD.
2. Select photos from iPhoto and drag them to the picture pane.
3. Select a song from iTunes (AAC audio file format) and drag it to the music pane. If I double click on the audio file, it plays fine.
4. Click on make movie.
5. Click ok. Select settings.
6. Click ok. Select QT Full Quality DV.
7. Click Export.
The export takes place, seems to take much longer than in the past. When its done and I double click on the QT file, it opens and plays 2-3 seconds of the audio and then the audio stops but the video plays. I’ve tried this several times with the same result. If I use an aiff audio file or an mpeg audio file, the QT movie plays both the audio and video as expected. It’s only when I use an ACC file format that it doesn’t work.
I even tried exporting the slideshow to Toast instead of QT. It did the export and opened toast and when I tried to play the slideshow within Toast, it stopped playing the audio after 2-3 seconds just as it did when exported to QT.
Funny thing is that when I use Toast 8.0.1 and create a DVD album, then save as disc image, those same AAC audio files will play fine as a disc image.
Here is what is in my QT plugin folder:
Flip4mac wmv advanced
flip4mac wmv import
flip4mac wmv export
I have done repair permissions, etc.
