i2 Level 1 Level 1 (80 points)
I am new at converting video from DVD to iMovie. I have home movies that were converted from 8mm to VHS and then to DVD+R using a Sony converter. The DVD's play in a standard DVD player and my Mac OK. I want to import them into iMovie 08 for editing. From elsewhere on this forum I followed the advice to use the free MPEG Streamclip. I installed MPEG Streamclip 1.9.2 and the Apple Quicktime MPEG Playback Component. When I try to open the DVD from MPEG Streamclip I get the message "File open error: unsupported file type." I tried opening the individual .VOB files with same result. I have Quicktime 7.6. I must be doing something wrong or there is something wrong with my install. Any help would be appreciated.
