I noticed that when I made the switch from 32-bit to 64-bit, I started running out of memory. Luckily I had an extra stick of RAM I could toss in. 64-bit code seems to take up a bit more space than 32-bit code.
Also, you might run into problems if you use of W32 codecs in MythVideo. One of my videos makes use of a W32 codec for which I have not yet found a 64-bit version.
