Folks, Somehow I have lost all my iphoto content (about 12,000 pictures and videos) and now only have thumbnail images of about 75kb for all photos and videos. I am trying to restore from back ups but no luck so far. Whilst looking for the video files - I have found some .dvdproj files that I can play in VLC. I can see the videos but cannot hear the audio of the people speaking or the music I have added. What I don't understand is - if I can't find the video files in iphoto... how can the .dvdproj file play the video? I thought it was only holding a link to the video files. And why does it play video but not sound? So I have 2 questions.... 1. I do not have a DVD of the projects so can I burn a DVD from an old .dvdproj file that I can send to people to view? 2. How can the .dvdproj file play the videos if I can not find them in iphoto? Are the hidden files in iphoto?
