error 18771 (while encoding a dvd from a QT sequence)





First of all, sorry for my english !


I'm trying to make a dvd from this QT sequence (8 Go) :

DV-Pal, 720 X 576, 25 fps, audio 16 bit, mono, 48 hz


It fails while encoding (everytime at the same moment... about 15 %)

Even if I just try to make a "disk image"


Saying : "Problem with the originals files. Error : type 18771"


What does it mean ?

It's not a problem of space (I have 20 Go free), isn't it ?






Powerbook 1.67 GHz / Mac OS X 10.4.4

Your video is not MPEG so you have a different problem. I have not heard of this error with a QuickTime file. Try exporting the FCP project again. Go to Apple's FCP discussion group and to kenstone.com to find if other FCP users have had this error.

Brand new ! See below...


I found this on the Toast 6 forum :


"The 18771 error means there is a defect in the MPEG video. It likely is dropped frames."


Any confirmation ?


It means that I should do my export FCP to QT again ?

But how will I get rid of this dropped frame ?

How can I find it ?


Maybe just try to do an export again, without changing anything - just to see if something better happens ?
