Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra has announced that movie 3 Idiots, which is releasing today, will be the first Bollywood film viewers can download legally. "This is the first film ever that you can actually download and watch on YouTube after 12 weeks from now," said Chopra.

YouTube will allow users to download the complete movie at a fixed price. The download price has not been disclosed yet but it is expected that the charges might be equal to the cost of the DVD. If this happens, will the people still download 3 Idiots off YouTube or will they prefer to go to the nearest store to buy the DVD. Let us know your opinion by commenting below.

Withdraw Funds from Paypal to Any Bank in India

Paypal is the most secure way to do transactions online without revealing credit card details. The good news for Indian users is that they can now withdraw money to their Indian bank accounts within 7 days of submission of request. Paypal deducts a small fee of Rs. 50 if the total withdrawal amount is less than 7000 INR.

First, add a bank account to Paypal and then follow these steps to request for a fund withdrawal.

  1. Login to your Paypal account
  2. Click on Withdrawal under “My Account” tab
  3. Click the first option which says “Withdraw funds to your bank account
  4. Enter the amount to withdraw and select a bank account
  5. Click Continue to proceed to the final step
  6. Paypal will display the withdrawal amount in your local currency
  7. Click Withdraw to complete the withdrawal process

Generally it takes 3-4 days to get the fund deposited in your bank account. Be cautious to provide accurate informations such as account number, IFSC code etc, else the amount will be returned to your Paypal account and a return fee will be charged. Visit RBI's website to find IFSC code for your Bank.

Fix GTA 4 DD3D30 (D3D) Error in Windows 7

GTA IV is a action-adventure video game with high quality graphics, sound effects, various stages and characters.It is the sixth 3D game in the Grand Theft Auto series. Grand Theft Auto IV has already received overwhelmingly positive reviews, becoming one of the highest-rated games of all time on Games review websites.

Officially the game is compatible with Windows 7 but some of the users get the following error when pressing the “Play” button
D3D Error – Please re-boot your system
This problem continues even after changing the compatibility mode to Windows Vista or Windows XP for the game or rebooting the system.

Here is a workaround to fix this by reducing the color quaility from highest quality of True Color (32 bit) to lower quality of High Color (16 bit). Right click on Desktop >> select Screen Resolution >> Advanced settings >> Monitor tab. and change the display resolution. Else you can also reduce the desktop display resolution to 800×600 pixels as GTA 4 runs properly at this resolution. Once you are in the game, change back to original resolution.
