I gathered some commonly raised issue about how to import WMV to iMovie, you may find the result would be all the same: they got no answer yet very confused. Let’s check it out:

Situation 1: I get a lot of videos from work that are in the .WMV format, and want to work on them in iMovie, but I can't figure out the best way to get them there?

Situation 2: I have recently converted to Mac but all my videos are wmv’s when I chose file/import/movies all the wmv's are grayed out & can't be selected.

Situation 3: One of my friend imported video from a DV cam-recorder onto a WinXP laptop. Video clips were made on his machine using MS Movie Maker in WMV files. But I’m using iMovie, I would like to import the video clips he created with Movie Maker inside iMovie so that I can "merge" them with other clips I imported directly on my iBook. Does any of you know if we can (if yes - how?) import clips made in MS Movie Make within Apple iMovie?
