LOL. The ultimate hack.

iMacPro may be a bit easier to install though. :geek:

EDIT: Installed the latest 10.4.6 beta, changed smbios to iMacPro1,1 but still getting the dreaded dumpGPURestart. Will try the swapid.kext and see what happens.

EDIT2: Can't boot with swapid. At a loss, any ideas on how to fix this I would be eternally grateful.

Yes sir. Tried IGPU on/off with 14,2 18,3 1,1 with 10.14.5, 10.14.6 Beta(s), 10.15.0 Beta. Weg on/off. Couldn't get SwapID to work.

The RX580 is an ex-mining card. Flashed various different vbios. I wonder if it's a hardware issue.

Making a 10.13.6 install media now.

Hi, I have Rx 560 and would like to get HEVC decoding for H265 video working better – currently stuttering on 10.14.5, advice appreciated. IOReg Explorer output attached.

Hi @shuhung,

You have helped me in the past. Now i have a new hardware configuration. Now I have a Intel I3-8100 with Intel UHD630 and a RX 580.
What is the best configuration to get iTunes and Netflix working on my hardware.
At the moment I have SMBIOS iMac 19,2 because of the cpu model, but DRM on iTunes and Netflix is not working. I use Lilu + Whatevergreen. The IGPU is configured in headless mode. How can I get DRM working with iMac 19,2 system definition. At the moment I'm on the latest Mac OS Version 10.4.5

Thank you

You could try this, it worked for me with iMac 14,2:
Code:
defaults write com.apple.AppleGVA gvaForceAMDAVCDecode -boolean yes
defaults write com.apple.AppleGVA gvaForceAMDAVCEncode -boolean yes
defaults write com.apple.AppleGVA gvaForceAMDKE -boolean yes

So i updated to 10.14.6 using VideoProc 3.3
Still not seeing the AMD notification light up when transcoding. iMacPro smbios with iGPU off.
Also tried with MacMini and iMac smbios with iGPU on. Not a whole lot of difference between them to be honest.

Hopefully newer VideoProc will fix this.

VideoProc is just a wrapper for FFMPEG. I downloaded VideoProc and FFMPEG was launched.

And AMD support is only in Windows....
  • AMD AMF H.264 and HEVC encoders

See https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/HWAccelIntro its not supported.

So you were never ever going to get AMD acceleration from VideoProc.

Seems to be incorrect, FFMPEG API support VideoToolbox.
AMD GVA H264/HEVC encoder/decoder are supported via VideoToolbox not AMD AMF, H264 is native, HEVC use plugin method.

On latest macOS, AppleGVAHEVCEncoder only support SMBIOS iMacPro1,1, on others SMBIOSs are disabled.
