However, iMovie doesn't allow you to select the MP4 file sometimes. So what is the matter on earth? And how can we successfully import MP4 to iMovie at any time?
This article aims to solve the above questions in two parts.
According Apple official website, iMovie (including iMovie '11/'09/'08) can only import DV, MPEG-4, MPEG-2, MOV and M4V. Though the MP4 file format defines the storage of MPEG-4 audio, scenes and multimedia content using the ISO Base Media File Format, the MP4 file may also contain any number of audio, video, and even subtitle streams. So it is impossible for the MP4 file to determine the type of streams in an MPEG-4 file based on its filename extension alone. Therefore, you may have some clues that why people using Mac (even Mountain Lion) always meet difficulty in importing mp4 into iMovie.
