I record a video with my iPhone 3GS (iOS 4.1), then I connect it to my Mac.
In iPhoto 11 I choose to import all (or just the movie - doesn't matter). The photos are imported but the for the video iPhoto claims that the format file is unreadable.

"Unreadable Files: 1
The following file could not be imported. The file is in an unrecognized format.

/Users/Yaron/Pictures/iPhoto Library/Import/Masters/Roll 1/IMG_0098.MOV"

LOL, it does not recognize a MOV video file?!
Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
