This is a known issue with Adobe stuff and (real) iMac Pro and OpenCL.
Switch to Metal in Premiere Pro and Media Encoder and problems might go away.
I have had issues with software that use "hardware acceleration" too and my system locks up sometimes....but the switch to Metal helped even though its slower than OpenCL.
I haven't had lockups with VLC or anything....try using IINA instead.
Also do you have Shiki.kext or anything installed?
I did use Metal on my last encode with Media Encoder. It worked fine other than Media Encoder hanging after it was finished encoding. A force quit took care of that.
I do not have Shiki.kext installed. Are you asking because you think I ought to have it installed, or to make sure I don't have it installed as it could be causing problems?
