How to import MP4 to iMovie for free editing

“I’m trying to import a MP4 video to iMovie. But whenever I import it the first frame freezes and the whole video just becomes that whole frame, the sound still works, but the moving picture is what I really need. I’m looking for a good solution. This is very important for me so any help would be much appreciated.”    —— Answers Yahoo
