LX5 video and the Mac?

My Mac seems to not want to see or play AVCHD (MTS) video. I dl'd a player called VLC which played, but I still can't bring into iMovie and edit.

Is there a difference in quality between AVCHD and "Motion JPG"? Would I be better off on a Mac if I shoot in the latter? Or would it be better to use AVCHD and convert?

Other advantages or disadvantages to both formats?
