    For you to convert mpeg files to something like mov in Quicktime to use in iMovie, you would need the mpeg2 plugin from Apple.

    MPEG-1 is not MPEG-2. But what causes problems with MPEG-1 is the sound; get MPEG Streamclip and either 1) convert to another format there, or 2) extract the sound and insert the audio and video separately.

    For WMV you'll need the paid-for Flip4Mac.
