comment Directx9 , how to play Directx11 games? Emulator dx11 to dx8?
DX11 introduces new functionality that is not available in DX9. If your software requires DX11, its probably because it requires these new features. You should upgrade your hardware.

comment Understanding my router IPv6
The router admin page should show you both of the router's IPv4 addresses (LAN and WAN) and the router's IPv6 address (there is only once since there is no NAT with IPv6). Google is showing your computer's IPv6 address. whatismyip.com only shows your router's IPv4 WAN address.

When you say that your two routers and connected via a switch, is the switch connecting LAN ports on the router or WAN ports?

comment Understanding my router IPv6
@MatthewWilliams, everything you have said applies to IPv4 only. The question is specifically about IPv6 and with IPv6 there is no NAT and you don't need port forwarding.

Right, but I'm suggesting to resolve the path before you pass it to the DLL.

comment Decode Jpeg to MP4 Video
I guarantee writing an encoder is going to take you longer than a month. You've got 700 pages of a complicated spec to implement.

comment Decode Jpeg to MP4 Video
Is there any reason you're against using NDK? I don't think you understand what you're getting into in writing an ISO/IEC 14496-10 encoder. The spec is several hundred pages and writing an encoder is definitely non trivial.

"its not working" is not very helpful in debugging an issue. What is the specific error are you getting?

comment Instead of forwarding ports, is there a way to set up SSH on routers so I would have to login to my local network?
Or.. if your router supports SSH you could set it up to listen on the external interface. There is no need for the complexity of VPN. What kind of router do you have?

comment How do you change the hover text on a pinned taskbar item in Windows 7?
Correct, you'll need to kill the process, which will actually cause the taskbar to be reloaded.
