To get a movie from YouTube into iMovie you will need to convert it into an iMovie friendly format. There are various ways and software tools to do this - the Perian plug-in and VLC may prove useful if you do not have Quicktime Pro (See links below) 1 Open the YouTube page, with the video you want, in Safari. 2 Open Safari's Activity window from the Window menu 3 Find details of the movie page, find the largest file there and double click on it. This will be the movie itself which should now download and is usually called get_video. 4 Once it is downloaded you need to rename it and add .flv onto the end - moviename.flv 5 Open this movie in Quicktime player (if you have upgraded to Pro version) or in VLC. 6 Export the movie in an iMovie friendly format such as mpeg. 7 Import the movie into iMovie.
