Setting Permissions for Apple M1

Table of contents

Why? #

Since Apple have updated to the Silicon M1 Chip, capture cards need new permissions to be utilised by the system. To do this you need to change the level of security used on your startup disk, this cannot be done remotely by us. 

Step By Step Guide #

  1. On the Mac with Apple silicon, choose Apple menu  > Shut Down.
  2. Press and hold the power button until you see “Loading startup options”.
  3. Click Options, then click Continue.
  4. If requested, enter the password for an administrator account.
  5. Your Mac opens in Recovery mode.
  6. In macOS Recovery, on top bar choose Utilities > Startup Security Utility.
  7. Select the startup disk you want to use to set the security policy.
  8. If the disk is encrypted with FileVault, click Unlock, enter the password, then click Unlock.
  9. Click Security Policy and choose Reduced Security: Allows any version of signed operating system software ever trusted by Apple to run.
  10. If requested, enter the password for an administrator account.
  11. Select the “Allow user management of kernel extensions from identified developers” tickbox to allow installation of software that uses legacy kernel extensions.
  12. Select the “Allow remote management of kernel extensions and automatic software updates” tickbox to authorise remote management of legacy kernel extensions and software updates using an MDM solution.
  13. Click OK.
  14. Restart your Mac for the changes to take effect.

After the steps above are complete you will now be able to install the drivers and use your capture card
