I tried to export it to iTunes and save it in my camera roll as well. when I found it in my iTunes last week I couldn't play it on my dell computer. wanted to know any options I have to get this iMovie off my ipad and saved onto my computer or at the very least somehow burn it ont a dvd
Mac Support Specialist: Mike, Mac Medic replied 2 years ago
In iMovie on your device, do one of the following:
From the Projects browser: Tap the project you want to share.
If you’re editing a project: Tap the back button to return to the project details screen.
Tap the Share button , tap iTunes, then tap OK when the export is complete.
Connect your device to your computer, then open iTunes on your computer.
After a moment, your device appears in iTunes in the Library window.
Click the device’s button at the top of the iTunes window.
Select Apps in the sidebar on the left.
Select iMovie in the Apps list below File Sharing (you may need to scroll in the main window to see it).
In the iMovie Documents area, select the file you just shared, then click the “Save to” button and save the file to your computer in a place where you can find it easily.
You can also save the file by dragging it to a location on your computer.
Disconnect the device from your computer.

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
no! if I could get it to play in iTunes id be happy cause I could burn a cd from there!
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I thought it would just go right into my iTunes like a movie I downloaded or something....but it did not. it doesn't give me the option to play it in itunes
Mac Support Specialist: Mike, Mac Medic replied 2 years ago
So it is listed in iTunes under Movies or Home Videos but when you double click on it it won't play? Is there any error message?
Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
no not listed at all
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
only place I can find it is right where you told me in apps only when device is plugged in
Mac Support Specialist: Mike, Mac Medic replied 2 years ago
Are you sure follow that procedure exactly? Select Apps in the sidebar on the left.
Select iMovie in the Apps list below File Sharing (you may need to scroll in the main window to see it).
In the iMovie Documents area, select the file you just shared, then click the “Save to” button and save the file to your computer in a place where you can find it easily.

yep that's exactly what I did
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.that's exactly what the error message says when I try to play it.
Mac Support Specialist: Mike, Mac Medic replied 2 years ago
The file should end with .mov, not imoviemobile. Here are instructions with pictures a slightly different way

ok I read the instrctions and think I know what I need to do. but I have a few questions for you before I do so....I had options to save it as medium or large I chose medium. is that ok or need to do it again?
in my camera roll on ipad, after saving iMovie like it said, it only put in the videos and pictures from movie....not whole iMovie. is that correct? it doesn't even seem like all of them are there to me....
Mac Support Specialist: Mike, Mac Medic replied 2 years ago
That depends on what kind of quality you want I would do large. I am not sure what you mean whatever is in iMovie is all there is. The movie is the movie
Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
that's what I thought too. but what saved in my camera roll is just all of the separate pictures and videos in the iMovie and that is what just got imported as well. should I try playing it again on windows media playernow that pics and videos are imported?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
nope, still wont play
Mac Support Specialist: Mike, Mac Medic replied 2 years ago

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
