Can you right-click on one of the clips you are trying to speed up? Then choose Reveal In Finder.
In the Finder, right click on this same clip, and choose OPEN WITH.../QuickTime Player.
In QuickTime Player, hold down the command key while typing the letter i.
That should bring up the inspector.
Tell us the dimensions of your clip and everything you see next to the word FORMAT:

Thanks for your answer.
It's not just one movie. I've got about 15 movies with different lengths. I wanna make one video of different bits and pieces of all of them. But here an example of a bigger movie:
Source: /Users/myname/Movies/iMovieEvents.localized/New Events/VID00362.mp4
Format: MPEG-4, 720x480, AAC,44100Hz,Stereo (L R)
Volume: 2,69 GB
Rate: 4,92 Mbit/s
Current size: 720x480 (original size)
All of them have got the same informations but the length of the movie and the volume needed
I've imported all of them and (about 30GB) and just tried to take a piece of 1 minute at once in the editor window not to overstress imovie. But even when I just have a 10 second part that I wanna speed up in this 1 minute scene it "crashes" and stops working. The only time it worked was when I just had one little clip about 10 seconds
and nothing else. But when I added another clip (about 10-20 seconds) to this existing speeded up clip it crashes again.
I've also tried to clean my RAM with a ram cleaner tool as well as reseted the PRAM. Nothing changed.

Have you tried optimizing your clips?
Right-click on either an Event Clip or on an Event Name and see if it offers to optimize.
