    -Downloaded a movie from a torrent site (Dont shoot me, I rented it like 6 times)...

    -After download was complete, i opened it up...

    -it was an .mp4 file and it played in Quicktime and I could see it AND hear it, everythings' fine...

    -I drag the file into iMovie HD...

    -After the clip (or movie) was imported I played it and it doesn't show video, i can only hear it.

    Any suggestions? ive been wondering what it could be, i upgraded to quicktime pro to try and convert it to .mov and still, same thing happened...

    any help will be extremely appriciated!

    I'm unfortunately having the same problem myself with all my mp4 files.

    Also unfortunately I don't know how to fix it, but I figured I'd let you know you're not the only one.

    I hope this gets fixed I don't want to have to buy an mp4 converter.

    MPEGStreamclip is a free video converter that can handle mp4 files. For best results for use with iMovie, convert the file to dv before trying to import into a project.
