I have a movie my kid made.  He sent me a DVD.  On it are Audio_TS files and Video_TS files.  How do I import these into iMovie, or into QuickTime?

You can try handbrake, to take the dvd contents and convert it to a .mov

its open source and free, works like a charm.

Handbrake is Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard compatible. An older version also supports Tiger.

Apart from this you can use Popcorn which is specifically designer for Macs, but not free.
