Just found the following paragraph on a forum to help you:
Why Sometimes Can't Import MP4 to iMovie?
Reason One: iMovie only supports importing MP4 formats with MPEG4/AAC or H.264/AAC data, not all kinds of MP4 formats. Some MP4 files from like Sony, Hybrid camcorders and other devices cannot be accepted by iMovie.
Reason Two: iMovie contains all the essential codecs to read MP4 files. Any different codecs included in audio and subtitle will cause the issue. In the circumstances, we still cannot successfully import MP4 files to iMovie.

How to Import MP4 to iMovie?
All in all, to successfully import MP4 to iMovie, you'd better to convert these MP4 files to iMovie totally compatible MP4 or MOV (QuickTime) formats.

Here is just the detailed guide at How to Solve iMovie Won Import MP4 Video Files

SOURCE: Capture video from Canon Vixia stopped working with iMovie

Video files come from Canon Vixia hg20 are in AVCHD format and this is a format which is difficult to be imported and edited by FCP and iMovie. So you have to convert AVCHD files to other easily edited video format, like FCP and iMovie preferred MOV format.

As for AVCHD Converter, have a try Aunsoft MTS Converter for Mac which is is a powerful video converter, player, editor for Mac and Windows. It can play many various movie files; it can encode movies to many formats, including iPod; it can cut, trim and join movies.

You can use this program to open and play most movie formats transport streams; edit them with crop and Trim;export them to QuickTime, AVI, DV and MPEG-4 files with more than professional quality, so you can easily import them in a DVD authoring tool, and use them with many other applications or devices.

How to rotate a video from vertical to horizontal from a HTC sensation 4g to a Mac computer was recorded holding the phone wrong way.


source: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/rotate-video-files-mac-pc/ Rotate Video On Mac OS XThis tutorial works the same for iMovie '08 and iMovie '09. If you're still stuck with iMovie '06, you'll need to use a third-party plug-in.
Another point of conflict is the video format. Some of the more obscure ones, like 3GP, aren't supported. A shame, because these are actually used quite regularly for mobile compression. For these files, you'll first need to convert them to another file format. This can be done in QuickTime X, via File -> Save for Web.
Alternatively, you can use a third-party file converter like ReduxEncoder, or an online convertion tool like Zamzar.

imovie1.jpgUse File -> Import Movies... to select your converted video. iMovie will analyze the video and generate thumbnails, so this can take a few minutes for larger video files.

imovie2.pngBefore we're able to use the video, you'll need to add it to your Project Library from your Event Library. Just make sure you select the whole clip, and drag it over to the other side of the screen.

imovie3.jpgNow deselect the clip from your Event Library, and select the copy in the Project Library. To rotate your video, open the Crop menu, make sure it's set to 'Fit', and use the rotate buttons. When you're sattisfied, press Done.

imovie4.jpgYou'll notice that you're video has now been rotated in your Project Library. To export it, go to Share -> Export Movie... or press cmd+E.

imovie5.pngAs with Windows Live Movie Maker, you can also upload your rotated movie directly to YouTube, or your personal MobileMe Gallery.

Can't upload videos to Imovie


Kodak series cameras capture videos in MOV files. iMovie will only import codecs that it can edit. iMovie can import MP4, DV, Apple Intermediate Codec, H.264, Photo JPEG, Motion JPEG, Apple Animation, and perhaps others. MOV is a multimedia container file, not a codec. It can contain any of the above codecs, but it could contain other codecs that are not editable by iMovie, such as MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 so that sometimes iMovie cannot recognize Kodak videos directly.
please try this video converter, good luck. kodak video to imovie

Copying a recorded file so I can edit it in iMovie on my computer please


I'm pretty sure that iMovie can cope with lots of different file formats. If you can burn the file onto a DVD and get the file off the DVD onto your computer's hard drive I think iMovie will cope with the rest. I know I have worked on Imovie in the past with DV files from my camera, but I'm sure that something like an mpeg file or a mp4 file will work too. What are the file options for recording from the HDD to disc?
