I have a dvd with a video consisting of raw .264 files (not h.264). Does anyone know how to convert this into something - anything - I can play? I'm running 10.6.4.

Thanks very much for any help.

You can probably play the file as-is in VLC. No conversion necessary.

Don't hate Windows. Just use Parallels! Best of both worlds!

Security systems use a containerless format called .264 which is not the same nor interchangeable with mp4, h264 or m4v, avi, etc.
You'll need the security system's proprietary codec converter to convert this to mp4, which is the best choice for the least lossy conversion.

I searched for the same software for a long time, and just came across this:

It doesn't let you save the video, but you can view it, so you could always use a screen recorder to make a quicktime copy.
