You will need to get some third party software, the good news is it's FREE. Check out www.squared5.com and look for MPEG Streamclip 1.9 or later. I did this and all good now, my movies go straight into iMovie without a problem.

Upload DV video camera to Mac.


Hi Dana
I would be inclined to suspect that the firewire on your Mac has gone bad - it does happen now and again.
Is it that the camera doesn't show up in iMovie or does it not even show on the desktop as an untitled drive?
I have an unknown brand HD Camera that only has USB and it will not show up on my Mac - but if I take the card out and put it into the card reader it shows up as a drive and the Video files are there to download.

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

How do I upload videos?


Hi Elisa, I was having the same problem with my MAC. I have a G5 tower. After much searching, here's what I found:
If you open up Image Capture and have this open when your camera is connected. You will be able to download everything, including AVI files. Once you've downloaded the file, open up iMovie. Import the file into iMovie. Do what you need to do and then you can export it as a Quicktime movie.
Phew!

Uploading my videos on my mac.


I finally found out how to download the videos from the camcorder to the mac. First I called JVC Customer service and was told to go to the Pixela website and download the following: captympeg.edit.ex and use the latest version, it works but it is going to cost you $49.99. I figure I had to buy this or I would not be able to make a DVD of my recordings. Once you download is easier if you use Quicktime app.
