For Mac users, Macintosh supports MPEG-4, namely MPEG-4 part 2 (a.k.a. MPEG-4 simple profile) and MPEG-4 part 10 (a.k.a. H.264).iMovie,, iTunes, iDVD,Quicktime etc like mov etc best. If you are having issues with playing your Flip videos on your Mac computer, you need to download the necessary codecs or convert flip video to right formats.
1: Someone recommends installing the free FlipShare software, and run FlipShare at least once to install the required codecs to enable playback of your Flip videos on your Mac. However, flipshare only convert flip video to wmv, and newest version even no this function
2: Someone suggest：Try connecting first before launching iMovie and see if that fixes it. Then vise-versa if no luck. You might have to try different combos like powering on the camera then plug it in or plug it in then power up. Try as many combos as you can before ruling out a worse problem. Sometimes it's just a bad connection - bad cable. Be patient and it should work with the right combination. You also can try, but to be frank, useless and waste time.
3 : Download various codecs may help you, however, complex and you must be a master-hand. I just suggest a simple and useful way for all the people, iorgsoft flip video to Mac converter decode you flip video to Mac by just three steps.
