iMovie '09: iMovie may not load or recognize iPhoto Videos


If you are using Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard, iMovie ‘09 may not recognize iPhoto Videos in the iMovie Event Library. This can occur because some older video file formats need to have QuickTime Player 7 installed in order to play.


To resolve this issue:

  1. Follow the steps in Installing QuickTime Player 7 on Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard.
  2. After you install QuickTime Player 7, choose Software Update from the Apple () menu and install any updates related to QuickTime.
  3. Restart your computer.
