@xelanaiznac @pastrychef unfortunately Quick Sync stopped working when I upgraded to 10.13.2.

An error was returned by the decoder layer. This may happen for example because of bitstream/data errors during a decode operation. This error may also be returned from VDADecoderCreate when hardware decoder resources are available on the system but currently in use by another process.

I have this problem unsolved for so much time. The update rarely works, I tried everything!
Now, for me, the solution seems to remove the file EmuVariableUefi-64.efi before upgrade. Than reboot, upgrade and replace the file EmuVariableUefi-64.efi.

I don't know what is this file. Is it for nvram ?

the best thing is to have a usb stick with clover without this file and use the stick only to update osx.
Did you try downloading and using the full macOS High Sierra installer to update?

The full installer updated me from 10.13.1 to 10.13.2 fine. All my apps, settings, etc remained intact.

xelanaiznac, can you post your copy of VDADecoderChecker? Mine is showing errors but I'm not sure if it's my copy of the checker. Thanks in advance.
