Thanks again, and unrelated request for advice

Thanks again to everyone who donated to the ramp drive (and those who haven't received ficlets, don't worry! I'll be on those shortly). Te's (in-character) voice post is here -- so, if you've ever wanted to be thanked by Brucie and the cartoonverse Tim, mission accomplished! As they say, "Happiest Thanksgiving ever."

I have a post about what I'm thankful for (other than, for obvious reasons, fandom), but I'm having an *incredibly* annoying time with it -- it's a videoblog post, and it's ready to go, but for some reason YouTube and Google Video are both mangling the translation of the .mov file. And when I say mangling I mean 1) major sync problems and 2) sections of dropped video. It looks perfectly fine in Quicktime, so I don't know why those sites are barfing so hard. I'll try a few other things, but don't know if they'll work out. In the meantime, I'd appreciate advice from anybody with vid fu. I'm working in iMovie, and YouTube and Google seem to be having the worst problems with those sections of the video that have separated audio and video tracks. (I'm playing audio while displaying a video of corresponding duration generated from a still image, and the flash translation ignores the still and plays instead a freeze-frame of the last shot on the previous section of video. This is exceptionally annoying, especially for anybody who watches it, because instead of the still I'd planned you get a shot of... well, my dorky mug, only in freeze-frame and thus looking even dorkier than usual).

Seriously, any advice is appreciated.
