Post by orderlyafan » Thu Dec 27, 2018 1:00 am

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

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.

Playback settings for Virtual Box VM

Post by skrutm » Mon Dec 31, 2018 3:10 am

Hallo,

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.
