    i'm new to macs and this forum but not forums in general and i've tried searching, but i need some further clarification

    i made a clip in imovie that i want to burn to dvd and then upload on to a website through my pc (my G5 isnt connect to the web yet)
    the problem is when i did some searching around on here all i found was a bunch of video format codes that i dont understand and programs i'm pretty sure my bone stock G5 doesnt have, so i just need a more basic explanation a possible solution with what i'm working with

    so i guess what i'm asking is how to convert the video format that imovie uses to what can be uploaded on this website like www.vidilife.com

    You could convert it into a Quicktime movie.

    This was from iMovie HD help...

    No DVD Needed

    You won't need to burn a "movie" DVD to do this.

    Once you follow the intructions above you can transfer the rusulting file by any means available... Key Drive, CD, DVD-ROM, network connection, etc...

    The file you create doesn't need to be too big or it will be difficult to upload it and for it to play over the internet.

    Do a few test with the export setting in iMovie to Quicktime.

    Size, quality, bit rate.... don't be afraid to try the pull down menus. You're not going to mess up the original footage. You are creating a new file.
