I would look at the timecodes in the movie file. There are programs to fix timecode breaks - not sure if imovie has an option itself but the program MPEG Streamclip has an option to fix timecode breaks.

Also, never burn straight to DVD from idvd. Always burn to a disk image if your HD space will allow it and then burn using Toast or Disk Utility.

Also, I wouldn't add audio tracks or what not in idvd. I tried to make a photo slideshow directly in idvd and it stuttered and jumped in a DVD player too despite playing OK on the computer. It was the adding of the audio track that did it.

Hi Syno,
I had the same problem and here is my solution: I changed the brand of disk to Verbatim -R and burned the project to a desktop image with best quality setting and when I burned it to a disk I did so at 2x rather than a higher speed. Try it and let me know if this works.
