Can you download the files onto HD? If you can, can you import the files from the HD into iPhoto?Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2010 8:29 PM (in response to Terence Devlin)I use a Samsung ST-1000.
Same behaviour as HELLIS is reporting. Before I upgraded to iPhoto 11, I had iPhoto 09 (version 8.1.2) and it was importing the same MP4 files successfully.
I have just updated iPhoto 11 to version 9.0.1: still not importing MP4 !
I have downloaded these MP4 files onto HD and then tried to move the files to iPhoto with the same error message: «unreadable file - file could not be recognized».
Of course, these files are readable with iPhoto 09 on the other iMac computer I have.MacBook 2,4 GHz Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iPhoto 11

I've got the same problem with my Samsung GalaxyS and nx100.
Samsung may encode videos with their unique format.Macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 3, 2010 7:33 PM (in response to HELLIS)re ilife 11 - iPhoto: Same problem with my camera 1080i video file which used to import into iPhoto with no problem. Error log says it is an unrecognized format. Odd part is that QuickTime Player and iMovie import it OK. However, Quicktime will not save it as Quicktime due to a 'timecode' problem, whatever that means. I suspect that apple won't have to look far to find this problem.
Curious thing is that my camera is a Samsung as well? (WB1000)MacMini, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

Currently Being ModeratedNov 4, 2010 8:48 PM (in response to paulapp)My Samsung TL225 has the same issue. I can import into iMove but not iPhoto 11. Kind of a step backwards.MBP 15, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 6, 2010 8:26 AM (in response to paulapp)My samsung NV100HD has the exact same problem. Bit irritating really...
Currently Being ModeratedNov 8, 2010 10:47 AM (in response to HELLIS)I have the same issue.. I have a Samsung GPS CL65 which is same as the ST 1000 and I too have this issue since upgrading to iTunes 11. Here's hoping to an updated fix soon from Apple!MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

Currently Being ModeratedNov 12, 2010 4:00 PM (in response to BIJAH)Samsung ST1000 and will not import the MP4 files for me either on iLife '11. Thought I was going nuts but, was able to successfully import the files on my Macbook still at iLife 09 so must be something with iLife '11. Sure hope this gets fixed sooniMac, Mac OS X (10.6.1), 2 gig ram
Currently Being ModeratedNov 16, 2010 8:14 AM (in response to TOM COXON)I have the same camera:
It worked very well on iPhoto 09 and iPhoto 11 before the latest upgrade on Nov/2011.
The original videos that I have imported still working, but right now if I try to import new movie files (mp4) recorded from my camera, it is not recognized as a valid file, although Quicktime plays it perfectly.
One solution is to transcode all your videos using VLC to another format. But I absolutely don't want to do it to all my video base, it's nonsense.
Waiting for Apple to come with a fix.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.5), 15
Currently Being ModeratedNov 21, 2010 10:14 AM (in response to HELLIS)This isn't restricted to Samsung cameras. I converted my camera's AVI file to MP4 using ffmpeg and also can't import. Pre iPhoto 11 worked okay.iMac 10,1, Mac OS X (10.6.5)
