I have a headache from Video_TS to iMovie problem. I took my wedding tapes and had it converted at the local photography store to DVD. They are in Video_TS format. I wanted to convert them into a format that can be used in iMovie and edit them. I bought toast, but it looks like it wants to copy the video to a DVD, not convert it. Is there any software that can help me convert and open Video_TS in iMovie easily?
