64-bit has serious issues. in most of this cases, the 32-bit equivalent works as expected. here it is why -maybe- osx-10.6.8 (in pure 32-bit kernel and userland) can be better.

 

as far as i could test, i found unusable (64-bit):

 

nvidia accelerated graphics drivers

maxima math software

various audio plugins has serious audio corruption (beware your ears!)

google drive

quicktime

...

(some more i cant remember now, i will be updating the list when i find more)

Try to boot in x86_64 and check the mov files again. I've had some h264 encoded mov files working without corruption and others have corruption either way. :/

What exactly did you change? For me to try too! I have experimented changing my smbios too, but didn't do anything here. I probably even tried it from reading the same thread as you did. My gpu is also an HD5770.

 

Cheers.

 

(Oh but you're running 10.7.4, is that correct? If yes, then that explains it.)

10.7.5 i changed the smbios but idk how it fixed it don't make sense

 

10.7.5? That's excellent! Which iMac model have you configured it to? 12,2 ? Could you tell me also exactly what kernel are you using?

 

Cheers!
