On a Mac computer running Windows 10 (from scratch, not virtualized with VMWare nor with Bootcamp), I installed AviSynth+ (3.6.0 from https://github.com/AviSynth/AviSynthPlus/releases) and Media Player Classic (from https://www.codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_mega.htm ). I confirmed that the plugins folder at C:\Program Files (x86)\AviSynth+\plugins64+ exists.

I tested with a simple AVS script called test.avs:


and also with


Both fail on Windows Media Player, whose bottom bar reads "Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file" and also on Media Player Classic, whose bottom bar reads "Cannot render the file". Neither displays any video content. The same happens after a restart, and after uninstalling, restarting, and reinstalling.

I have tested and used AviSynth+ with similar steps on a desktop running Windows before. I had the same problem on a virtual machine on Azure and so now I wonder if I am doing something wrong or if AviSynth+ fails with virtualization and with Mac computers. (I noticed that AviSynth+ now has support for macOS and BSD, so if all fails, I will compile from source on a mac computer running macOS.)

Has anyone succeeded running AviSynth+ on a Mac computer?
