I just picked up a new Flip Video and was dismayed to find out that it used a custom app to import its movies, and that this custom app was PPC. I was also dismayed to find out that iMovie ‘08 refuses to import AVIs even if you have the appropriate codec installed. So after some hacking, I put together an Automator workflow that will convert all your Flip videos into DV and import them into iMovie. You can download it here.

Update: I’ve put up a new version of the importer that has a much longer timeout when waiting for Quicktime to export each movie.

eddienull on #macdev posted a great link to a video of George Bush singing Sunday Bloody Sunday. I thought it was pretty great.

Yesterday morning, before I left for work, I stumbled across a list of videos of a guy named Matisyahu. He’s a Hasidic Jew. He’s also a Reggae singer and beatboxer. And he’s quite good. I liked him enough I bought his latest album from the iTMS. I definitely encourage you to check him out.
