    I downloaded photos from my camera to iphoto which included some videos. The video files appear in iphoto but i want to transfer them to imovie. However when I tried to do this - a message in the imovie program says there are no video files to see. When I tried to transfer them through the share option, which opened my photo albums but only the photos appear not the videos. Can someone please tell me how to transfer the video files from iphoto into imovie.

    To save someone else asking:
    which Mac?
    which OS?
    which versions of iPhoto and iMovie?

    May be missing something as iPhoto is not what I use for any videos myself, but.. drag them out of iPhoto onto the desktop, then open iMovie and import?

    If you have iMovie '08 or '09, do the videos you have in the iPhoto Library not appear in the Media Browser?
