About iMovie and iMovie supported video formats

iMovie is an Apple-based software used to create and edit movies. The software can use clips that are recorded off a camcorder, a webcam, or network camera to be edited directly into the software. Importing movies and video clips into iMovie for further editing are possible as well. However, do note that the software can only handle a few supported movie formats.

iMovie will generally accept file video formats having the following extensions: MP4, MOV, M4V, DV, and AVCHD. If the file that you would like to work on doesn't fall under these formats, you would have to convert them first. And if it happens that one of the listed video file formats above is not accepted by iMovie for any reason, the error could lie in the codec that was used in creating that video. The same solution applies: convert the file into another compatible format.
