Temporary workaround to reduce freeze issue (GVA H264 encoder compatible issue), not a fix.
Copy below info.plist to desktop, remove or disable hwe hweBGRA hwe420 settings depended on SMBIOSs, copy back then reboot, no need update DYLB cache.
If modded AppleGVA info.plist, don't use shiki boot flag shikigva=32.
If using SMBIOS MacPro6,1, remove or disable settings hwe TTOnly bwLimit0 bwLimit1.

Need to disable something on Info.plist with iMacPro1.1 for encoding/decoding freeze H264/HEVC?
Thanks so much for your helpOn macOS 10.14.1, and if you want to use Netflix on Safari, Airplay or watch a movie on iTunes (streaming) you probably want to install this kext (I recommend no and wait until for a macOS update).
With macOS 10.14.0, the Radeon RX 580 works OOB without the need to install the dummy kext (AMDRadeonEllesmereGVA), but have the same issue with the 10.14.1 (system hangups); that's why is better to not install the dummy kext and wait until a new version of macOS. The rest of the applications works flawlessly even games works fine.
If you enable the iGPU, the hardware acceleration would be executed in the Intel GPU/CPU instead the discrete GPU unless you explicity define ATI as the video decoder (I'm not sure that if it works, but...):
defaults write com.apple.AppleGVA forceATI -boolean yes
Lilu, WEG, FakeSMC and other specific only.
In my case, I'm using this kexts:
- NoVPAJpeg (to fix the issue with Quicklook and jpg files)
Hi!! - Happy Holidays!Thanks so much for your help
so I am trying to get the Z97X system (see build # 2) to work with RX 580 to do get full HEVC/H.265 encode/decode support.
and I see you are using the same chipset. you think you can help me with that?
I don't use iTunes or Netflix or any streaming services on this Hackintosh all I want to do is edit video and export it with the various format with FCPX.
I am currently running 10.14.2 on this Hackintosh (i can go back to 10.14 if I need to)
please advise me what I need for kexts and in my config.plist?
do i need to enable iGPU?
can i work without the iGPU? ( clover give me memory error if I enable the iGPU, have to restart the machine 2 or more time for clover to boot to the drive GUI)
Change to “NO” (internally, modify the element <true /> to <false />) or remove (both elements, key and value) should have the same effect.Do I just set these settings to NO or do I need to completely remove them from info.plist?
I have made all the changes mentioned in your post but Netflix is not working for me. As soon as I play something, it goes to another page listing requirements for HTML5 and Sliverlight.Hi!! - Happy Holidays!
I have the following configuration and everything is working like a charm:
- SMBIOS: Mac-42FD25EABCABB274 (iMac15,1)
- Botargs: none
- Graphics: nothing
- Devices: nothing
- Acpi: basics (WEG doing almost everything)
- iGPU: Disabled
Custom changes (AppleGVA.framework)
- Remove hwe & hweBGRA
Results (hybrid, CPU + Metal):
- iTunes Streaming: OK
- Netflix at Safari: OK
- Screensaver: OK
- VideoProc: Bad
- AirPlay: OK
- FCPX: Some times hangs, others ok.
- iMovie: OK
