    How to open video format '3gp' in iMovie?
    I shot some videos with a mobile camera and the format is '3gp'. They are stored on Mac hard disk in 'My Videos' folder. I want to open them in iMovie but i Movie doesn't recognize them as videos.
    Any suggestions?

    Here's one way with software you already have installed.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    that requires quicktime pro. If you just rename the extension from 3gp to mp4, iMovie will import it.
