Adding on to @TerryN's answer, the open command has additional options that allow you to explicitly specify what application does the opening. RTMP.

comment OSX Mavericks Root User
@zigg Thanks for the correction--I was thinking of <a href="administratosphere.wordpress.com/2007/07/19/the-wheel-group/… line</a> being changed to allow the specified user to execute commands as root.

comment How to prevent resetting a login password in single user mode or from a recovery partition?
A common saying in IT Security circles is "Physical Access = Complete Access." If one person can get in, so can someone else.

comment Front facing camera stopped working on the iPhone 4s
I know that this screen indicates a hardware failure from personal experience. When I took apart my iPhone that was having the exact same problem, I discovered my camera cable connection had come off somehow. I'm revising my answer to include relevant links and stuff.

comment How do I access the files in a deleted user account?
Another way to create the System Administrator (root) user is via Terminal: dsenableroot will ask you for the current user's password (if admin), and then for a new root password twice.
