I have downloaded a lot of free funny video clips from the Internet and I want to edit them on iMovie. But they are .flv files and are not compatible with Macs or QuickTime or iMovie. How can I convert these files into a format that will be compatible with iMovie or QuickTime?
In this post, let me show you how to convert FLV to iMovie supported format using Video Converter Mac App.
