Total Commander 64 bit plugins

Total Commander 8 will be released soon, offering native 64 bit support for Windows. The author kindly asked to recompile the available plugins for 64 bit, offering bounties to plugin developers.

The plugins to encode and decode gif files and avi videos are available in 32 bit and 64 bit versions now, ready for download. While the gif plugin seems to work fine, the avi version is facing the windows codec hell all over again in 64 bit world. On a 32 bit system I recommend the use of the ffdshow-tryouts codec pack, on a 64 bit system I wish you good luck to find working VfW (Video for Windows) codecs for encoding and decoding. 🙂

I should probably rewrite the plugin to use either DirectShow or just wrap ffmpeg…

Homepage over IPv6

On June 8th, 2011 my webhoster participated on the World IPv6 day, making my homepage temporarily IPv6-enabled. Shortly after they went productive, so all my subdomains, the homepage, this blog and even the ftp have IPv6 records enabled by default. has address has IPv6 address 2a00:1158:0:300:8e72::1

Only the email servers don’t run IPv6 yet, but I’m sure that’ll come. Welcome to the future. 🙂
