SPMC - XBMC Port With H.265 Video Codec Support

Successor to the hugely popular H.264 MP4 codec, HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) or H.265 is a new video compression format which offers smaller file-size with better video quality then it's predecessor. While the new codec is gaining popularity online with new contents getting published in this new format, multimedia players are still catching-up with support for decoding of this new codec. Desktop player's like VLC are now capable of decoding this new codec but we still do not have H.265 support on mobile device like Apple iOS and Google Android.

Luckily, SPMC (Semper Media Center) - a fork of XBMC for Android can not only be installed from Google Play or Amazon AppStore (One needs to download and install XBMC/Kodi from their website) but also comes with some handy tweaks and modifications. The latest version takes the lead from it's parent by adding support for H.265/HEVC on platforms such as Rockchip RK3288, Amlogic S805/S812, and other SoCs using MediaCodec API and libstagefright.

India's FASTag Technology

FASTag is the brand name given to automated "Electronic Toll Collection" system launched by India's Ministry of Road Transport & Highways. While such type of highway tag brands are common in developed countries under brand names like “Eazee Pass”, “SunPass”, “e-Pass” and “Salik”, this is a new technology for India. The system comprises of a simple to use, reloadable RFID tag which can be used to pay toll charges without stopping at toll-plazas. The Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) technology used in the tag allows users to travel non-stop through dedicated FASTag lane at toll checker booths, automated scanning of RFID tag on vehicle's windscreen deducts toll charges from the linked prepaid account without stopping for the cash transaction. The tag employs Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) technology and is affixed on the vehicle's windscreen after the tag account is active.

The RFID cards can be purchased and loaded from banks, at the moment Axis Bank and ICICI bank have started to offer the same with more franchises/agents at points of sales are planned in coming days. The technology not only saves users time but also helps save fuel as one don't need to wait for cash transaction, this reduction in idle vehicle fuel consumption is expected to save Rs 60,000 crore in fuel bills.

Fixing "The program can't start because the detoured.dll is missing from your computer." Error On Windows

Majority of Windows users face missing .dll file errors every now and then, but missing detoured.dll takes the prize for being the most annoying of them all. Unlike other missing .dll errors this will popup with message "The program can't start because the detoured.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." everytime an .exe file is launched on your computer either manually by the user or via autostart.

On the computer I diagnosed this, the error was being flashed 7-10 times on every boot and one needs to close each prompt, on further digging I found detoured.dll is infact part of an Microsoft Research technology named "Detours" which allowed hooks into every application launched on Windows OS (scary!!!). Having such a dll on a computer without any specific use-case was not acceptable so I devoted time to get rid of this error without the need to re-install this dll in my System folder.

Fixing Lastpass Android App Login Prompts On MiUI 6

Disappointed with not only the design but overall package of the new Apple iPhone 6, I finally gave it a ditch and went for Xiaomi Mi4. The phone is not available in India but importing the device from HongKong costed me roughly $450 (Rs. 28000/-) and I am very satisfied to get such a brilliant phone for almost half the cost of an iPhone6.

Xiaomi phones are also known for their popular MiUI Android interface, and I installed the latest MiUI 6 Beta having Google Android 4.4.4 under the hood. MiUI 6 comes pre-installed with an excellent Security app which features an Anti-malware Scanner, System Cleaner, Data Monitor, Call/SMS Spam Blocker, Battery Manager and an excellent permission manager which lets you take control of which apps have root access and other permissions. Having Android allows you to do a lot more like LastPass Auto Login feature for applications, this however failed to work on MiUI6 and always timed-out as shown below, thankfully the fix was easy as instructed next.
