File > Import Movie > Original > Copy

I found that if you let it use the default "optimize" settings, it will corrupt old video.

Share > Export Using Quicktime

I found that if you use iMovie's export it reduces the quality of your video.

I followed youtube's advice for iMovie export settings.

Options >  Video Settings
  Compression Type: H.264
  Frame Rate: Original
  Key Frames: Automatic
  Frame Reordering: Unchecked
  Data Rate: Automatic

Options > Sound settings
  Format: AAC
  Show advanced settings >Constant Bit Rate

For size, selecting origial size didn't show the correct size so I used getInfo 
in finder to see the orignal dimesnions and set size to custome chosing those.
