It is all exported & compressed for DVD together so why the disparity in playback? This is very rare but it bugs me, can anyone explain it?</span>

      How are you going about exporting for DVD? Are you using Compressor? If not, you should be. And there are certain settings in the default DVD compression presets that are not ideal for DVD.

      Are you referring to the default DVD settings in compressor, DVD Pro, iDVD or all?

      The particular discs I am talking about have been exported as a quicktime movie into iDVD.

      Thanks

      I was referring to the default settings in Compressor.
