  1. How can I add different applications?
  2. Hi, I was able to get: GVA info: Successfully connected to the Intel plugin, offline Gen9 Hardware acceleration is fully supported This was with the latest Lilu, Shiki & NvidiaGraphicsFixup kexts which are still in source code stage. If anyone is using them, I would like to know are you getting HW decoding in browsers outside Safari? I tried Firefox and Chrome, both seem to fall back again to CPU. I understand chrome and Firefox use VP9 codecs on sites like Youtube, so I even tested with H264ify extension, which uses the mp4 AVC similar to Safari, yet those two browsers were still relying on CPU. Everything else works fine, I am getting HW decode in apps like VLC, INNA, MacX Video converter shows Hardware Encoding Support: Yes. My specs are: intel i7 6700 Asus maximus viii gene Msi GTX 1070 Gaming X
  3. So that means if I keep my primary display as discrete GPU in BIOS, but in my config .plist for clover add a platform id of connector less iGPU (intel hd 530) and have shiki and lilu kext in my Kext > other folder I should be getting VDA decoding at least via iGPU for VLC, quicktime and web browsing HW acceleration, but still be able to use primary display connection via Nvidia and use its CUDA power in softwares like Adobe without any issue? Any other changes to be made like making ForceOfflineRenderer = No in /S/L/AppleGVA.framework info.plist?
  4. is it possible to run this along with a gtx 1070 gpu? Also is it possible to only force the nvidia gpu (pascal using VP8) to be the primary decoder, and use it for HW acceleration everywhere without iGPU even be needed? As currently i noticed in browsers, for HW acceleration at places like Youtube, the cpu is doing the hardwork by turbo-ing and i doubt if nvidia is even doing anything. In Shiki FAQ, its mentioned for Maxwell, but any idea from where i can get the IOVARendererID for pascal gpus. I would really like to keep my nvidia as primary GPU and don't mind a connector less iGPU also if thats the last resort.
