What to choose Windows 64 bit or Windows 32 bit?

64 Bit vs32 Bit

Well, Since 2005(I guess) Windows has been launching 32 bit and 64 bit versions of their OS’. They are bit different or may be you can also say they work differently. They were implemented to increase the capability of handling max Random Access Memory (RAM).

Choosing between Windows 64 bit and 32 bit is really a big decision, but you must be careful while choosing one.  These days all the newly bought computer systems are delivered with 64 bit OS, you know why? Answer is simple the 32 BIT operating systems were designed to support maximum of 4 GB RAM, where as 64 Bit OS will support 4GB and above.

So what should you choose?

The answer is. If you are having 4GB or more RAM, then to juice out every single drop out of it, you must install the 64 bit. 64 bit will let your hardware run at its max. If you are having less than 4 GB, you may give it a try.”

What will I be risking installing 64 bit?

As you know before 64 bit came out 32 bit was everywhere and people till today use those in high number, so the availability of software support for 64 bit is less than 32 bit, However many software run on both 32 bit and 64 bit without problems but some software don’t. So, you may have trouble finding the software compatible to your OS.

Not only that, the another problem is driver support, certain drivers may not support your 64 bit so the device may stop working, you will need to search perfect driver compatible to your OS.

What will I be Losing if I don’t use 64 Bit?

Well, you know the ability of handling maximum ram is better in 64 bit version, so the operating would be better and smooth. you will be losing this control.

These days many software are built to better use capability of 64 bit machines, so this would be great.

Beware, 64 bit operating system use more RAM than usual, The operating system will take one or couple of GB more than usual to store its operating system and software.

I am just a Gamer, will it matter for me ?

I have seen that many games run smoothly on both 64bit and 32 bit without any difference but I still think 64 bit is deserved by 4 GB + machines.

[How To] RIP DVD or CD movies to smaller size.

You want to RIP DVD movies to just 500-800 MB and store them in computer? Well, it’s way too easy. You wont need any external hardware or any special computer for that, all you need is just a simple converter software. I am using MediaCoder HQ which is free and powerful as far as I know.
Today, We will learn how to convert a DVD or CD movie to a single compressed file while keeping its quality good enough.
First you download Media Coder from here http://www.mediacoderhq.com/download.htm
Choose the right edition for your computer, If yours is 64bit Version then download 64bit one or if it is 32bit one choose 32bit one to download. The selection of right version really matters. 
After completion of download install it as usually you do with any other applications, It must be easy.
Now Open the Media Coder and under the File Menu choose Add file, add all the files related to the movie in serially(I meant from beginning to end if the unordered file adding is done then the movie will really amaze you :D)
Here I have added two files of two CD in right order select the both files holding “ctrl” key, and then right click on them and select “Group” or press key “G” holding “ctrl” key.

Now select the “Video” tab and apply these setting.
Video Bit rate =>768 kbps. ( you can try lower bit rates if you believe you can get good quality with it, remember the lower the bit rate is the smaller the size if video and the more detail is lost.)
Format => H.264 (That is the format I use because it gives very good quality and is best in competition with others, You may try others but you wont get the same good quality at such lower bit rate.)
Video Setting For Media CoderOn the right side of it set these,
Profile => “auto
Level => “5.1“( The Higher the better quality you get and this is the highest at present I guess)
Preset => “Slow” (The slower it is the better quality is output)
B-Frames => “4” (3-5 recommended , the higher is the better)
Ref-Frames => “5” ( 3-6 recommended, higher is better)
Remember the more better quality settings you apply the more time it will take to convert video.
X264 settings for Media CoderNow Move to “Audio” tab,  and choose the settings as below.

Format => LC-AAC ( This format because audio sounds better even in small size or less bit rate to say.)
Rate Mode => Target Bitrate( This will keep bit rate under certain limit)
Bitrate / Quality => 76 kbps ( Believe me, The audio will still be sounding as good as it was even with such low bit rate)Audio Setting for Media Coder.Now Move to “Container ” Tab
Container => MKV or AVI or MP4.
Container setting for Media CoderNow to The “Picture” tab.
Color Space => “Original
On the Right
Auto Level => “Full Range”
Denoiser => “HQ 3D
Deblocking => Check both “Horizontal” and “vertical”.
Picture setting for Media Coder
Now we are done with editing conversion setting, click Start now to start conversion process, it may take few hours,it depends upon the file size, file resolution and length.

The output quality must be as good as the one before but with smaller size. Good Luck.
