    Hi guys

    I took some small video on my mobile phone last night and I want to try edit them quickly but am having no luck

    I tried to import them in FC express but it could not do it, so i tried to convert the video using mpeg stream to another format and that would not recognise the video.

    Anyone know how I can get this video into FC to edit it?

    We'll need more info: what phone did you use, what codec does it use, etc.

    sorry I did not realise you needed that phone as its simply an mp4 file

    The phone I used was the htc tytn II if thats any help.

    it's sometimes a matter of which codec is used to make the mp4 file. But try using iSquint (google it) to convert it to a workable file. If that doesn't work, your file might be corrupted
