I'm taking video on a JVC everio and it saves in a .mod format.  I'm thinking I can change the extension to mpg or mov and it will work.  How do I change the extension names.  Anyone have experience with this?

Hi All,


I'm taking footage of my high school footballer and want to get it in iMovie so I can share it on youtube or burn a disc.  I'm shooting on a JVC Everio that records it with a .MOD4 extension so iMovie can't read it. 


Can I just change the extension to MPG or MOV and have it work?  I copied and pasted the file on my Mac but don't know how to change the file extension, can someone please help?  I hit the control key and clicked on the file but don't see "rename" as an option. 


Anyone have success working with the JVC Everio and interfacing with a Mac?  I have an iMac and a MacBook.
