iMovie can accept just about any content as source material so long as you have the QuickTime codec to support it.

Yeah, the previously linked page is a bit mesleading until you get to the bottom of the page:

iMovie HD also allows you to import most QuickTime-compatible formats. For more information on how to do this, click here. If you need to mix different footage formats from multiple cameras, click here to find out how to use them all together in one iMovie HD project.
I've used iMovie & iDVD 5 to make DVDs from the mini-movies in MJPEG my digital camera makes.
