Is this a simple fix to get these cards to work?

Or will they never work?

Thanks

I think that the Framework (Apple) only work with an fixed set of GPUs.
At least the gpu must have some HW features for video playback, which not all (even new) gpus have, but for example 9400M has.

Interesting, do you think there will be a list supported in some plist somewhere?

Hi,

Seems my notebook nVidia G102M is fully supported :(

flips-MacBook-Pro:~ flip$ /Users/flip/Downloads/VDADecoderChecker ; exit;
Hardware acceleration is fully supported

Cheers

Lion DP4 and Gtx460 1gb

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.
VDADecoderCreate failed. err: -12473

Small command line tool that checks the capabilities of your graphics hardware & OS to decode h264 videos on your GPU. Apple doesn't seems to allow all GPU's to use the System Framework, despite the fact that they have the hardware capabilities (like Geforce 8800 or Fermi cards). The tool have the same error codes like other VDA Software (XBMC) but its easier to test. On Lion with current Fermi drivers i get an error by the decoder. You can try it and post your software & hardware combination. requires Mac OS X 10.6.3 SourceCode on GitHub Feel free to contribute on Github Download precompiled binary (Intel 32/64-Bit):


could it be good for vaio problem:

I get the same message on my GTX 460.

Thanks for the tool, very depressing! :)

I'll remember to run this whenever I'm feeling too happy.

This has also fixed in Lion's Fermi drivers :P

Technical Note TN2267
Video Decode Acceleration Framework Reference:

This reference describes the Video Decode Acceleration framework available on Mac OS X v10.6.3 and later with Mac models equipped with the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M, GeForce 320M, GeForce GT 330M, ATI HD Radeon GFX, Intel HD Graphics and others

Maybe it enabled only on mobile GPU's? But desktop GPU's should also have the requirements.

You stated it was Intel 32/64 bit right?
"Bad CPU type in executable"

Running in 32 bit mode. :(

Works now, thanks. (But as stated in an older post, 8400GS returns an error).
