    Thumbs up flip video
    I thought I would tell my flip video experience. I wanted to get a flip video so I had a video recorder always close at hand. So today I bought the flip video ultra. After hours of research before I bought it I was prepared to go through a rough time to get the videos into imovie 08. I almost bought quick time pro, but I found a share ware program that converts. So I took a couple of short takes. I decided to just try going into Imovie before any thing else to prove it won't work. ( everything I read on the web said it won't work) So I made a new folder in my movie folder named flip movies. I plugged the flip into my macbook and did not install any software, I just dragged the files into my new flip folder. Then I opened imovie 08 and imported them. Well, lo and behold, they imported and I can edit just fine. No extra software no trouble at all. Just as easy as my mini dv.
    I am using tiger with I movie 08. I Hope this helps anyone considering this video recorder.

    Update: Just installed snow leopard box set with imovie 09. Works the same way in 09. Wants to open iphoto though, have to quit that first. Sample of snow leopard box set made with flip video and imovie 09. Nothing great just a quick movie.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-beb1IE2ng

    Update: Imovie 09 will import directly into events without dragging files into another folder first as described in op. ( as tested on new flip ultra 120 min) 08 and 06 will not work directly importing, follow op instructions. oops sorry about the link, I didn't know it was set to private. should work now.
