Which MPEG-4 standard is better? The one used by Airtel or the one used by Reliance?

Also, does Tata Sky encode the HD streams in MPEG-4?

I know its very off-topic, but codecs and formats were being discussed, so I thought I'd ask.

When considering quality MPEG-4 Part 10 AVC or most commonly known as H.264 is the best standard available. It is difficult to say which is better Airtel or Reliance without looking at the encoder settings. Hmm.. I guess Airtel and Reliance must be using hardware based encoders, if you could just get the model numbers of the chip used we can find out who is better, like I said it is difficult. It would fairly correct to assume that all current service providers must be using MPEG-4, which level, that is difficult to say, most likely Advanced Simple Profile ( ASP )/Xvid or Advanced Video Codec ( AVC )/H.264. :)

It was good 4years ago,not sure about now.
AFAIK nowadays we have encoders which can use the gpu to encode(much faster)

Super is still in development - so it must be improved with new features to take the advantage of gpu / new cpu features to encode videos faster like other softwares though I've used after version 2011.

I have a query. Does video editing in 32 bit vs 64 bit makes any sense. Like performance wise or thread handling. Ss native vs emulator kind of.

Using 32 bit on 64 bit may give you a "lil" bit lack of performance, but not much noticeable.

Haven't tried it, I use x64 edition. You can also try Handbrake.
i have handbrake but I can't find an option to convert into avi. Can see only mkv and mp4.

Also, help:

Handbrake uses x264 so it supports only MKV and MP4, you could convert in Handbrake and then remux in avi, that is possible but that defeats the purpose.
