Playback in VM

by skrutm » Wed Jan 02, 2019 2:01 am

I have iMac i7, 24GB RAM, 5K. I installed MM in Virtual Box Virtual Machine, Windows 10, installed Display Adapter is "VirtualBox Graphics Adapter fpr Windows 8+".
In MM there is "MM codec pack Trial" installed.
Playback of videos with "Windows Media Player" works fine while playbeck in MM doesn't work; breaks, squares are schown...
What would be an optimal settings for playing videos inside VM in MM:
- VirtualBox VM Display settings
- Windows Display addapter
- Codecs to be installed

Hi,
Most likely problem is that "VirtualBox Graphics Adapter fpr Windows 8+" do not have all the Hardware Acceleration support that MMW uses. you should ask in Virtual Box forums for Enabling and optimizing DXVA2, OpenGL and OpenCL apps, but I'm guessing problem is in emulation and that Virtual Box needs optimized settings to make this work.

MMW and MM5 do not officially support working on VM environment, but it is know to be working to some degree.

After MM5 gets stable we will be more looking to make native MAC version of MM5.

Hi,
Patience, we plan to release MAC version after MM5 gets stable.

Unfortunately, I do not use MAC yet so I can't help with alternative.

Recently changed my working environment to Mac but no Mac version from official download page. What's the best alternative on Mac?

I've been able to get MMW up and running on my mac through Parallels but when I run MMA sync server it never finds the server. Wifi sync works flawlessly in recognizing the sever from my windows laptop. Anyone been successful with setting up wifi syncing on their Mac?

Hi,
You can't even imagine how much you are right.

Wow you'd think that in today's age with all the other apps being developed you'd be able to bang bang bang out something.ive noticed that this has been a request along with the Compton of MM 5 for over 5 years. I love the app and will continue to use it on Windows with VM Ware but...... I m surprised that there are so few options over iTunes. Must be apples way of control.

And it will, as soon as technically possible.

I understand the frustration, I'd also like to have the Mac version ready sooner. Anyway, the current situation is as follow: MM5 made a big step to be a cross-platform app (UI and related parts can be used right-away), but we need to fully finish the Windows version of MM5 first. Meanwhile we also try to port the rest of the app for other platforms. I can't give you a timeframe, but really: we work hard to make this happen!
