With the iMovie on iOS or Mac, you have fun creating videos and combining videos, photos, and music, to make your own movie.

No one can deny that the iMovie could never be better, but indeed there is an obvious shortcoming in it. Videos in only limited formats are supported to be imported into iMovie. Below is a list of iMovie video formats.
According to Apple, iMovie supports these video formats: MPEG-4, QuickTime MOV, MPEG-2, AVCHD, DV (both standard and high-definition videos). And iMovie supports most of the commonly-used video codecs, including H.264, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DV, and AIC.
