Thank you for posting this problem; can you confirm a few things for me please with regards to this issue (so that we may pinpoint the problem)

  1. What OS are you running on? And what Motor version are you using?

  2. Is the clip playable in quicktime? (ie, does it play correctly all the way through in quicktime; I assume that it may not be able to)

If you could get back to me then I will endevour to look at this issue more in depth.
