Strange flash frames after compression.

I'm VideoWrapping a "Microsoft DV AVI" file into an ".mov" under the "iPhone" settings. The problem is that every 9 minutes and 27 seconds, there is a quick flash frame and a high pitched screech.

This is what it looks like:

I'm exporting a movie that's about 20 minutes long, so it happens twice. It's not a problem with the source video, and it happens with every video file I put through videowrap. Anything over 9 minutes has the same problem. It's like clockwork. 9:27, 18:54, 28:21, ect. Is there anyway around this?

I'm also having trouble with beginning and end credits. Whenever there is white text over a black screen, the text only shows up for a flash frame. Also, in some cases, when the video fades to black between two scenes, the video will fade, but instead of staying dark, the first frame of the next scene is used to fill the gap. It's like watching a still picture for several seconds, then the movie continues.

I know this seems like alot, but it's been getting really annoying. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Do you get these problems when converting to other templates, such as the Flash templates?

Yes, the same thing happens in Flash and any other ".mov" files. I haven't tried any of the other AVI or console templates yet.

Well, I've exported it to every file type I can think of.

.mov, .mpg, .mp4, .avi, and flash. The same thing happens every time.

I normally edit on my desktop pc with Windows XP, but I've also tried using VideoWrap on my laptop with Vista and it STILL happens. So unless my laptop and desktop both have the same bug, I don't understand why this is happening.

Does VideoWrap usually have a problem with DV AVI files?

Is there anything else I can do to improve the quality of the videos I need to wrap?

Thanks.

Does it happen with *any* video you try, or just a specific one? I'm thinking that perhaps it has a really odd frame rate.

So far it seems to be fine when I wrap ".mov" files, but I get this problem with everything else.

Anybody have any ideas on how I can fix this? Other than buying a Mac, that is.
