I imported YouTube videos into I Tunes movie using I Squint but now I want to edit some parts using I Movie. What is the easiest way to move the video file from I Tunes to I Movie and then back to I tunes movie? Thanks.

First, three things for you to remember. I is iTunes and iMovie and iSquint. Capitalization counts as does spacing.

In iTunes you can drag the file from the listing onto the desktop or into a folder. I recommend dragging it into your Movies folder.

In iMovie, select Import from under the File menu and choose that file. Edit as needed. Assuming you are using iMovie 08 or 09, use the Share menu to export a copy of the movie for your intent and write it to your Movies folder with a unique name. Actually I think in the Share menu there is an option to send your creation straight to iTunes. Otherwise...

Open iTunes and drag the file onto it or use the File --> Import option.

If you have an older version of software, we would need to know that. Also, I'm assuming that the file type you have will work in iMovie.

iMovie 5.0.2
OS X 10.4.11 Tiger
iTunes 7

iMovie does not have the iTunes in the share options. Email, HomePage, Video Camera, iDVD, Quick Time, and Bluetooth only. Do I need to upgrade? If so, do I need to upgrade iLife ($79) first?

As I explained, get the movie out of iTunes and bring it into iMovie. Then try editing. Your iMovie version is a bit old buy I think my iMovie Export Guide can help you get your product out.

As for the iLife upgrade, review the specs required for it because your machine, what ever it is, might not be powerful enough for iMovie.
