In iMovie, you could import all these videos as Events. iMovie would leave them as mp4, but it would take some time to generate thumbnails.
You would start a new project. You can select clips from multiple events to add to the project.
If I were you, I would use iMovie's FILE/IMPORT(from file) command to bring in one of the m4v and one of the mp4 files. If this does not work, you may need some pre-processing or conversion.
If they work, go to the Movies/iMovie Events folder on your internal drive. If you prefer an external drive, you will need a drive that is formatted Mac OS Extended (journaled) (Not FAT32), and add a folder at the top level called iMovie Events.
Create a folder under this folder. The folder name should be the event name. Then, drag the files for this event into the folder. This is a way of rapidly importing multiple events. The next time you open iMovie, it will generate the thumbnails.
