I'm afraid I can't be much help - I'm not able to do HD here yet.  Maybe
your best bet is to go with a 32 bit OS for the time being.  I don't know
enough about it to know if you can use the 32 bit driver under a 64 bit
Linux via a compatibility layer.

That, or auto-transcode to a resolution/bitrate that your machine can handle.

Sorry I'm not much help.
