    My 2 and 1/2 year old broke my Macbook and luckily I did a back up not to long ago. I am able to transfer my pictures and music to my windows laptop but the movies that I had on Imovie will not play on anything. I have tried handbrake and a couple of other programs but nothing will play them. Does anyone have any ideas that I can try? Thanks

    Were these iMovie Projects? Were they already in .mov, .mp4, or some other format?

    Have you tried Quicktime? It's free from Apple, even for Windows.

    your kid broke your computer. Have your kid re-act all those scenes. ;)

    Have you tried VLC or as mention in the previous post, Quicktime?
