    I've never used video on my computer before, only on my digital camera.

    So I have a mac and iPhoto.

    When I download (import) my photos to the computer the video files do not import with them. I have to go to the camera on the desktop and drag them out.

    Once I do that, I can put them on the desktop and play them using QuickTime Player- I don't think I have the full version though, but I am able to watch my videos.

    I tried uploading them to YouTube but it seems they are too big to upload and I haven't figured out how to edit them to a smaller size using QuickTime.

    Do I not have the right programs or am I going about this all wrong.

    Thanks for any help; it's my first time utilizing videos.

    Does this help?

    I use Image Capture to transfer still image from my camera to my iMac.

    For editing images, I use Gimp.

    Sorry, I don't have experience with videos.
