If you download the Defender DVR software, it comes with an AVI generator to convert the .264 files to .AVI. defender-usa.com/files/21013/software.zip

comment Resize Windows partition on a Mac without destroying data
No it is not possible, even in 10.8. You have never been able to resize an NTFS partition with Disk Utility.

Worked for me! Required a restart then I could install.

We need to verify that the software is launching open with the proper permissions.

I never posted an attempted solution so I'm not sure what you are talking about. I don't want to run a browser as root. I want to know why the command was not working as expected.

Thank you, this is the answer I was looking for: "The system ran open as root, but open is just a client for Mac OS LaunchServices which is still running as the logged in user."

My posted got edited. I don't need a browser to be opened with root permissions. I need a way to determine if an open command was launched with root permissions in OS X.

I think the problem might be that when I launch sudo -u root open http://www.google.com/, the browser is not opened under the root user and I'm not sure why not.
