HandbrakeCLI force eGPU Mac Mini 2018 Catalina

Post by hnad123 »

[b]Description of problem or question:[/b]

Hello. I see now in Catalina, that you can right click on an application, Get Info and check Prefer External GPU. Is there a way to force External GPU use for the HandbrakeCLI_x265?
HandbrakeCLI_x265 is the program I see running in in my Mac Activity Monitor when using MDRP (Mac DVDRipper Pro) version 9.
Thank you.

[b] Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable): [/b]

[b]HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):[/b]

Mac HandBrake 1.3.3

[b] Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):[/b]

Mac Catalina 10.15.7

Re: HandbrakeCLI force eGPU Mac Mini 2018 Catalina

Post by s55 »

It looks an awful lot like they are violating our license by utilising HandBrake under the hood without showing our license ...

Not that it matters since x265 is CPU only and thus your GPU is irrelevant.

Hope you didn't pay for this software :(
