    Unhappy Simplest way to put iPhone movies on YouTube?
    Hi, I'm new to the Mac. My PC finally bit the dust after 8 years and I moved to a 27" iMac.

    It's been a smooth transition as I'm a Linux admin by profession, but a few minutes ago I went through the hassle of publishing an iPhone movie to YouTube.

    The way I did it was to import the movie from my iPhone into iPhoto, then export the movie out of iPhoto. I then imported the exported movie into iMovie, did some slight clipping to get rid of a few seconds in the beginning and a few seconds at the end, and published it to YouTube right from iMovie.

    That sounds stupid to me. There must be a way to import directly from my iPhone into iMovie ... or at least import directly into iMovie from iPhoto without having to export the movie out of iPhoto first ... no?

    You can edit in the iPhone via the iMovie App you can purchase.

    Or sync your phone to get your movies into iPhoto on your iMac (~ automatic depending on your settings)…then open iMovie and let it build thumbnails…which imports the new movies in iPhoto into it.

    I tried that. Got the movies into iPhoto, but couldn't figure out how to get iMovie to either see them or import them.

    Ding ding, we have a winner. Never even thought to see if that was possible. This is officially my "doofus-of-the-day" moment.

    Yes, and DL the previously noted iMovie App and then you can do a decent amount of clipping or editing to your preference….with everything done right on/from your iPhone.

    Maybe you are overcomplicating things? When iMovie is opened, it notes any new viddies in iPhoto and asks you if it can generate thumbnails. If you allow it to do so, then you can edit those clips.

    So in my case when I sync I have things set to automagically suck in any new vids or pics. So then they are backed up in my Macbook Pro and available for heavier duty editing in iMovie once I let the latter generate the thumbnails. If iMovie was not open then opening it makes it asks about generating the thumbnails.

    Easy, however you want to go about doing things.
