so I just installed High Sierra (10.13.2) and noticed that iTunes crashes as soon as I start it..sometimes after 2-3 seconds, sometimes after a song starts. I didn't try a movie or other video contents, just audio.
I tried to roll-back to iTunes 10.6 but it's the same.
I don't have dedicated GPU, but only Intel HD520. Also, I'm using Lilu, but not Shiki.
do you think I have the same problem of the one you're talking about here, or a different one?
thanks

Yes. I had the exact same issue. Same iGPU and no dGPU. Another thing that you may notice is that no album art is displayed for an audio file in the finder. Use shiki, and it should be resolved. It will also display your album art in the finder.

Thanks. Actually album art is displayed, but I will try shiki to fix the crash. Do I just need to install the kext, or also use some bootflag?

shiki.kext goes into EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other and then you restart. That should be it. And make sure that `shikioff` is not a Clover bootarg.

Guys I do NOT have any problem with itunes and I am trying to figure out what cause the problem to many hackintoshers.
(Just to be clear I am not using shiki). I just upgrade my rig with an AMD RX 560 and everything still working great.SMBIOS 17.1 10.13.3 and latest itunes checked.
