I have an Intel GMA 3100 [not x3100]. I have everything working smoothly but I cannot play videos. VLC is showing “no qe and no graphics acceleration” error and other multimedia players only play sound but no video. please help me to watch video on my Hackintosh ml 10.8.2.

I have searched on the internet for graphics enabler kext for this GPU, but all I could find was for x3100. I cannot play video on my hackintosh without the GPU being enabled. please help me.

CPU: Intel Dual Core E2250
Motherboard: ASUS P5KPL-CM
GPU: Intel GMA 3100 [not x3100]
RAM: 1 GB

    You already mentioned the problem here:
    There doesn't seem to be a modified kernel extension for the GMA 3100.

    I found the following post regarding the GMA 3100 which looks promising. But this method is based on a 10.6/10.7 driver so it might not work for 10.8

    Other then that I'm believe you'd be better off buying a dedicated graphics card which is supported on hackintosh (existing kernel extension for the card).
