Problems updating itunes and quicktime
The video struggles to play and most of the time, itunes shuts down. Thanks ZKHello, Obviously, I see that there are compatibility issues with itunes (and quicktime) and vista.The video struggles to play and most of the time, itunes shuts down. Thanks ZK Hello, Obviously, I see that there are compatibility issues with itunes (and quicktime) and vista.Hi everyone I'm having the same problem and I have a brand new HP Touchsmart PC.
I am not interested in reading all the bickering between people on the forum, some blaming Apple and some blaming Microsoft. Deselect Enable Direct3D video acceleration in the Video section I tested video after video on an external and an internal drive and it works... Any time I try to import video, or play it assuming it imported (2 out of 35) itunes will seize up.I don't believe it is just a vista problem though as I had the same thing with my other machine and it is a sony running windows XP.I returned this machine to a previous version of I Tunes and it is now working fine.I have literally had to move ALL of my video files from my internal HD (320 GB's) to my external. The technology is there, why isn't it complying?!?!? Now occasionaly the screen will stop playing/ficker. My old machine with 256 mb of ram ran itunes with no problems. I have kept ALL of my media files on a separate internal HD for a year now. I was having problem playing videos after updating my Quick Time to version 7.1.6. I did follow the Direct X disabling advised by Apple and another post on this thread, but it didn't work for me. I then decided to return the PC to its factory condition which I did,then downloaded the new I Tunes again and this time all seemed well except for the fact that when I shut down the computer it lost my paid for videos which fortunately I had backed up to the other hard drive.Neither drive will let me play Itunes movies/music videos, without the choppiness and/or freeze ups. I transferred them back but it took a couple of goes and now seems to be working.
