I bought a DVR with four video inputs. Opening Safari, Firefox etc, it calls for installing additional plugins, which in this case is ActiveX. This means I cannot log in to see this online from my Mac. Then I start VMWare, Windows XP service pack 3. Starting IE8, I manage to access and log in to the DVR recorder. But I cannot see any video I can hear the sound, both on the live view, and in the recordings, but I have not yet managed to see any video at all. Video shows fine on a monitor using video out from the DVR box. Is there any way I can get to see this video? Also, it lets me backup the video files, great! Although, they have .264 file extensions, and I have not yet managed to play them back. I have tried to change .264 to .MOV, .MP4, .AVI, tried to open in VLC, QT etc ... no joy yet. WHY does it have to be this complicated!!!
