As imovie will not handle AVI's they have to be converted to mpeg4 or dv. Streamclip will not play these movies, all I get is a white screen. Any clues? Quicktime will not play them either.

It should tell you what video codec it is using. If it says something like Indeo video or IV50, IV32 etc, you will only really be able to use Windows-based encoders to convert them, though MPlayer can decode some of them.
