I've browsed this forum a bit, in search for an awnser to the big 64-bit flac question, but haven't found any good awnsers yet.

In every discussion I've seen, the awnsers have been like:
"There is no use for a 64-bit compile because the 32-bit works just fine".
and ... "There is nothing to gain on a 64-bit compile".

But this is VERY wrong. And mainly because of one thing:

Windows Vista Media Center 64bit.

For the first time, microsoft have done thing the proper way when making something new. Windows Mediacenter for vista 64bit is 100% native 64bit, AND (unfortunatly?) written in 99% C ... so it's kind of a racist. It doesn't want to play with 32bit codecs.

Therefore, at the moment, it seems like there is no way to play flac files in windows media center 64bit.

I've downloaded ffdshow 64bit, which should support flac in theory (I think...), but I haven't got it to work.

Why isn't anyone compiling a 64-bit flac verison? Is anyone in here capable to do it?

64-bit is the future. Especially with Vista... 2GB ram is nothing these days, and memory is cheap. So i guess that if the worlds population is going to utilize more than 3,5GB RAM at most, sooner or later, 64-bit vista will get very popular, very soon (well... it allready is).
