How Can We Edit MP4 with iMovie?

iMovie is a great video editing software application sold by Apple Inc. MP4 is widely used for saving media data and obviously iMovie supports .MP4 videos. However, not all kinds of MP4 files can be imported to iMovie, why?

First, Let's view the problem from web:
1: I import an mp4 into imovie 11, but only the audio is imported, without the visual, any help?
2: I can't import mp4 clips from my gopro to iMovie. I can see them listed, but they are grayed out and I can’t select or import them.
3: I'm trying to edit MP4 files in iMovie, but failed! They can open properly in VLC.

Why We Can't Edit MP4 in iMovie?
From Apple: Some camcorders captures video footage in both the MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 formats. If your camcorder has captured video footage in both formats, iMovie may only recognize the MPEG-2 movies, so MPEG-4 files will not in the list.

Moreover, iMovie can only support not corrupted .mp4 files that are encoded MPEG4/AAC or H.264/AAC data. But MP4 is a video container that may contain various audio and video codec (and sometimes even subtitle streams included) that iMovie does not support.
