    They probably need to be converted to a format that iMovie can work with. For that you'd need a video converter like Handbrake:

    Video formats that iMovie can handle:

    If you paid for it, watch your credit card. iSkysoft, Aireesoft, Aimersoft and other shady Chinese outfits peddle the same crap product with different front-ends. They advertise it by spamming forums and email addresses. I would not recommend their products.
