hey, I am not quite sure the exact problem, but i guess it is because the some converted file format is not iMovie supported codec. as i know, even MP4 has different kinds of codec. Maybe you can try another converter that has iMovie column, I mean it is preset the iMovie codec. I am using Video Mate which has this preset. I am not sure yours has this preset. Anyway, if not, you can try to use Video Mate.

thank you for the quick replay on my issue!
That is exactly what I read about recently, but I coud`nt believe in that. Anyway, I did a different approach, downloaded the free trial version of "iSkysoft Video Converter" and have this program mp4 converted to mov.
The conversion took some time but nevertheless with a good quality.

The one I'm using now has very good conversion quality. It's Enolsoft video converter. You can try it.

There are many who tries to sell their product. Not OK here.
First: .mp4 etc are Containers that can hold Video Codecs that iMovie can or can not use
Open file with QuickTime-Player - here -
open Inspector [ cmd + I ]
Video format (Video Codec) : nnnnnnnnnnn
Frame rate : YY.yy
What does they read
then there are several free tools that usually can convert to what iMovie can use
- AIC Apple Intermediate Codec (for iMovie)
- ProRES - for FinalCut
• QuickTime Pro - can convert to several Codecs (not free - about $20-30)
• MPEG Streamclip (free) - can also do a lot (can need .mpeg2 component - not free about $20-30)
To convert frame rate I use
• JES_Deinterlacer (also free)
to burn a DVD (if iDVD is not avail.)
• Burn (very very simple/basic - no extras at all - very plain - BUT free)
