DVD to Quicktime Skipping Frames - please help



Hi I am trying to convert a short video on a DVD to a Quicktime or MPEG4 file. The DVD is clean - no skipped frames but the the resulting converted Quicktime file skips a few frames every 15 seconds or so making it unusable. What am I doing wrong?

Was the source DVD recorded with a standalone DVD recorder or DVD camcorder? If so, the problem may be time-code breaks which Toast doesn't handle well. A fix is to use MPEG Streamclip (freeware that requires Apple's $20 QuickTime MPEG 2 Playback Component). Streamclip has a fix timecode breaks command in its edit window. After completing the fix choose Convert to MPEG from the File menu and use that video in Toast for conversion.


Something else to try is converting to DV instead of MPEG 4 to see if the dropped frames appear in that format as well.
