    You could always export them from Quicktime to an iMovie friendly format eg .mov

    Failing that Mpeg stream clip or a similar app should be fit to convert them for you

    Try using VLC media player to transcode...see the link in my signature for specific directions, it's not hard to do.

    You can change it from .avi to .mp4 and iMovie likes .mp4 alot.
