I have videowrap and several times now I have encoded videos for youtube but the output file will be missing a title slide or picture and instead shows a freeze frame from the next scene in the movie for the duration of the missing image! I have looked at the source files and they do have the missing image. So what could the problem be? It's not the source files format as the rest of the video plays fine. For an example I will give the link to one of my movies. Note how at the beginning of the movie it freezes for a few seconds before playing the Bleeding Ink Studios clip, between that and the Torched Entertainment clip there was (in the source file) a title slide saying "In Association With". If you look closely you will see the missing title as it is displayed for a split second instead of the length it was supposed too. Please help as this has become a re-occurring problem that is getting on my nerves.

How did you create these videos? What program did you use?

The source files are exported from either Visionlab or Premiere Elements 3. The video I provided a link for was originally exported from visionlab after some final grading was done. It was exported as an .avi file with the cinepak codec. The one I am currently having trouble with was exported from Premiere as a quicktime file with the photo-jpeg codec.

Well, you definitely want to avoid the cinepak codec, it tends to be rather old and nasty.

While you're still in the editing process it's best to use high quailty codecs. If you're using DV footage then stick to DV codecs. If not, try using Quicktime's Animation codec - high quality and fully compatible with VideoWrap.

I tried using the Animation codec but the converted file did the same thing. Is it possible that it is simply a glitch in the programming?
