    I was trying to import some videos taken on my iphone 4 to my macbook pro today and iPhoto keeps crashing.

    I'm using lion 10.7.2 and iOS5.

    I'm not sure if these videos had been sitting on the phone prior to me updating to ios 5 or not or if that could even cause the issue but when I highlight the clips to be imported the iphoto app starts to work then it crashes. One time the mac saved the first attempted video file to a folder. I opened the folder and it played just fine but it was saved in a special folder as a failed import.

    Just writing to see if anyone else has had any import problems as of late.

    edit: Checked on of the saved files and it said it could not open it because it was the wrong format. It was taken with an iPhone 4 so I know thats bull***. Strange! two of the other clips did save to a folder on the laptop but not in iphoto and they did open in quicktime player when I clicked them. They wont import to iphoto and it just keeps crashing.

    I have same problem

    I have had the same problem since I got my Iphone 4S this week. Have not been able to import from new phone. Iphoto crashes. Save photos to a recovery folder. I don't have an answer so far.

    same thing happens with my old phone. Not just 4S. Maybe the problem is ios5?

    Figured it out

    Uninstall 3ivx. Worked for me. Search this forum for details.
