    Thumbs up imovie problem
    i have a problem with imovie, i am new to using it.

    i have some movie files in imovie that i wish to delete but am unable to delete.

    the FILE drop down that says "Move rejected clips to trash" and "Move to trash" are lightened , not darkened, and I am unable to click on them to use.

    How can i change this status so i can delete some videos.

    thank you in advance for any help and direction.

    Have you selected the clips that you want to trash before opening the Menu?

    Earlier I transferred some Windows Media Player files(MPEG) to my Mac. They showed up as QuickTime Folders but when I clicked on them they would not play. Then I went to Open the files With VLC they worked. I need the files to work with QuickTime Player so I can edit them in iMovie HD!

    Just becasue they play in Quicktime doesn't necessarily mean that they will import into iMovie.

    Use MPEGStreamclip and export them to Quicktime using the Apple Intermediate Codec option, then they'll be fine for iMovie.
