- Click on Video decoder and set Hardware decoder to use to DXVA2 (copy-back) Show picture
- Click on Extra external filter and choose ffdshow raw video filter (ffdshowrawfilter) from the list Show picture
- Start playing any video, SVP should catch the playback and popup warning message about 4GB aware patch
- Close Kodi and then press Patch button
And that's it!
