On my Hack Triple (7 Ultimate x64 with SP1, OS X 10.6.8, OS X 10.7.2-DEV) I have -

 

error message 12470 (abject failure) on 10.6.8

error message 12473 (unknown failure) on 10.7.2-dev

 

GPU is AMD HD5450 512 MB GDDR3 (fanless PCIe desktop version).

 

Drat.

On my 4670, GraphicsEnabler=yes, default FrameBuffer (Flicker), i get this output:

 

my-mac:Downloads user1$ ./VDADecoderChecker

Successfully connected to the Intel plugin

/SourceCache/AppleGVA/AppleGVA-2.2.69/Sources/Slices/Driver/AVD_loader.cpp: failed to get a service for display 2

Hardware acceleration is fully supported

Segmentation fault: 11

 

I have 2 outputs connected to my monitor, both DVI and VGA, but DVI is not working correctly (and not even detected in mac lion), is this why I have an error message?

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

I don't know if that means that the GeForce has video acceleration capabilities under Mac, or it means that the Intel HD 3000 have this. But this GPU is only activated under Windows with Lucidlogix when you need to use Quick Sync Video for example, for others things the GeForce is the normal one.

Hi Aivarz,

 

could you please give details about the card (brand, exact model, ...)?

 

Thanks ;)

Nice to see that many people are participating here - but it always helps to post not just the model but the brand and model. Thanks!

Hi xtremegamer,

 

great tool, thanks for your efforts!

 

With the newer CPUs with integrated gaphics I think it would be a nice addition to have a piece of information (name, model, whatever you can find) in the output as well - this could help greatly in filtering output as

ASUS GeForce GS 8400 EN8400GS SILENT / P / 512M 512MB DDR2 PCI Express.....Hardware acceleration is fully supported.

which is clearly from the integrated graphics and not from the old 8400GS :rolleyes:
