    You have to open imovie and drag and drop compatible video clips or quicktime compatible to the empty time line on imovie. if imovie doesn't let you import the clips, probably you are using video clips not compatible with imovie or you are trying the wrong way. You will see the movie frames like a lot of rectangles. You have to re-arrange the order of your clips on the timeline and cut the frames until you get the the time code desired for your movie. Not all video formats are compatible with imovie. If you downloaded flash video clips or windows media, you have to convert those clips to quicktime format to be compatible with imovie. watch the imovie tutorial if you have imovie 09. This will help you a lot.

    Watch the tutorials for imovie 08 if you have imovie 08.

    I hope this works for you.

    Do you make sure of your video files are suitable to imovie, if not, i think you need to convert the videos to mp4 or mov formats. Perhaps you may give a look at this mac video converter, it's really a good one for me to convert all my video files, with simple process and powerful functions.It can support many input and output formats, you may like it as i think it's really a good one for you to convert video files:

    Although it's not free, it only needs little money with good service and powerful functions that freeware can't compare to, and you can try it free first before you make a purchase decision.

    Hope you resolve your problem asap!

    this will help you.... Use 'zillatube'. This is the easiest (and also the fastest) way.

    Zillatube produces mpg/mp3 video or sound formats from youtube that are compatible with windows movie maker(or windows media player), and more. Also for high quality conversion, use vcd mode to get good quality mpg file.

    Just get those clips you want , save & convert them, and then mix/match with pix/sound/etc using windows movie maker(included in your windows machine) to create new masterpieces..

    It is very easy to download and convert videos. Then edit those converted mpg videos with windows movie maker.

    It works very well -
