32-bit Application Limiting Memory Usage

Post by UAAlumni » Wed Dec 27, 2017 9:45 pm

Memory Usage for Multiple Simultaneous Instances of MakeMKV
Capture.PNG (79.1 KiB) Viewed 755 times
I noticed that when I have 3 (or more) MakeMKV instances open simultaneously, they can only utilize up to 4GB (~3.7GB realized) of RAM (which is the cap out for 32-bit applications). Is there any plan to package a solely 64-bit compatible application?

I have 128GB of DDR4 in my computer. Understandably, MakeMKV can't (or shouldn't) use that much, but it might improve performance if it could utilize more RAM on setups that require simultaneous ripping of content from multiple drives.

I take it that you're referring to the MacOS version, and not Windows...

The Windows version comes with both 64- and 32-bit versions bundled together, and runs the appropriate one for the OS installed.... But the GUI portion shows up as 32-bit.
