Hello,

for several weeks now I get very predictable crashes as soon as I try to play a movie within iTunes. Furthermore my Hackintosh acts kinda weirdly with videos in general (Quicklook in Finder, YouTube, Twitter or other video streaming sites), it looks something like this:

Help of any kind would be greatly appreciated :)

errm, I didn't enable anything. I built my computer in 2014, my GTX 770 worked out of the box as far as I can remember.

Make sure that (inject intel) is false its known to cause issues. Attach config.plist.

Did you edit my config.plist file? Should I drag and drop it into my clover folder and replace my current one? Would you suggest disabling the iGPU?

Yes. Replace Config with the one i provided. Disable onboard IGPU then see how iTunes movies youtube etc works for you.

Alright,

iTunes doesn't seem to crash my computer anymore, however the movie won't start playing, I see the controls at the bottom and the timeline at the top but the screen stays black. Within finder the small thumbnails for videos still look glitchy (like the YouTube screenshot from above).
