    If its not .DV format or mpg4 i believe your out of luck. iMovie only plays with those formats. What format are your files and what is the video that is captured.

    FRAPS 1.x, at least, use a custom codec, that's Windows-only as far as I know.
    I don't know what FRAPS 2.x use. Edit: Seems like it use the same, or a similar, codec.

    Either way, you could try using VirtualDub to convert the movie to something more Mac compatible.
