I just got the new Mac Desktop and REALLY hate that I cant drap and drop videos into the newer (i-Life11) -Imovie like I was used to since 2010. Seems to only work for photos. Is there a way around that?


So I am making a church youth group video where I have spent HOURS trying to get parts of Youtube videos into the video to show them.  I have 2 forms saved on my desktop thanks to the software -   i have a FLV video and a M4V - both converted.  The Imovie already has plenty of clips that are M4V in them so I know it will take that form.  It just wont let me import them..they are there but are not accesible (they are 'faded') under the File/Import/Movies/Desktop  or File/Movies/RealPlayerDownloads.  They aren't darkened and  and I cant do anything with them.


What am I doing wrong?


HELP please.   Thanks for input. 


Frustrated volunteer who has spent too many hours on this!!!
