I'm running my Kaby Lake system as iMac 18,3 and can't play iTunes movies either (don't know about the h.264 export issue as I don't make any videos.

Have you played with the Shiki values?

After reading all 41 pages here is my conclusion;

Downloading Media works(Which I confirmed myself all downloading media (Dramas Episodes) works for me) Online watching doesn't.

Note: I am downloading HD movie(Hugo) right now I will test it when I finished. I will share the result.

Edit:
Download finished and the movie works without any problem but extras don't work.

Had good luck doing a fresh install of Mojave with AMD (running dual cards in the same machine-- AMD RX560 and Nvidia 1080TI (currently disabled; no drivers available and primarily used for Windows). System definition 18,3. Lilu and Whatevergreen installed.

Went smooth and surprisingly, everything worked out of the gate.

Interestingly, iTunes streamed DRM video. 'Inject Intel' was selected by default during install.
Final Cut worked but without acceleration so render performance was slower. However, unchecking 'Intel Inject,' hardware acceleration returned, Final Cut renders were normal, but iTunes didn't stream anymore. Downloaded content played though.

I'm still not clear how Whatevergreen works. I know Shiki values can change things but with Mojave I haven't added any of those. Ordered a Saphire RX580 which is on the Apple recommended list, curious if that will help.

After using NoVPAJpeg.kext my Netflix and iTunes DRM start working. I need more test for a couple of days. If results are still persisted I will edit this post.

Normally Netflix never worked and iTunes DRM working just when I download. But HD movies extras never worked even I download the media. Now everything works.

Here is the link who wants to try;

Please dont forget to share your results. :thumbup:

I'm no video rendering wiz so this may be an easy knock-down...

With my setup I just used QuickTime to export a video created with the web-cam at 1080p. In the Export option I had the tick-box for HEVC encoding - not greyed-out or similar - and though it took a little time the export went ok. Saved about 8MB from a 58MB mov video.

iTunes plays DRM videos fine.

No Shiki but I do have Whatevergreen.

System Definition = iMac14,2 (as we discussed previously etc)

No other kexts except the NoVPAJpeg one for Preview etc.

Not sure that's of any use but just noticed while recording a podcast.
