all failed: flv, mov, mp4, mpg, avi
Non of these are any Video Codecs - they are all containers and can hold Codecs iMovie can use - OR NOT
Open one with QuickTime Player and then open Inspector [cmd+I] and read
Video Format/Codec: nnnnnnnnnnnn
Frame rate: yyyyfps
What does they say.
I use - StreamingDV - and this Codec works in iMovie alt is - AIC (Apple Interchangably Codec)

Thanks for your reply. As requested, I have opened one. I opened an mpeg one and it said:
Format: mpeg1 muxed
it does not say frame rate, only
Data rate:1.296.54 kbit/s
I used to have no problems importing video files, but this time inn 3 days of trying I have not been able to import even one, regardless of what 'container' the video was in. I don't get why this is so very difficult.
Especially since I tried a video converter and even when converting to other containers or formats, nothing works whatsoever. I thought that the extension after the dot is the format! for example .mov etc
