Hi all, Until very recently, my audio worked completely fine in Songbird and in iTunes, but now I have severe issues with trying to play any audio. If I load iTunes or Songbird, they will play a few songs and then just grind my whole OS to a halt, often requiring a hard reboot via the power button. I don't believe it's a sound driver issue, because playing audio, even long audio of up to an hour, on Youtube or via games (Heroes of Newerth, Counter-Strike: Source) does not cause any problems. It could be format-specific to MP3, but I have no real valid way of testing this. I have run Search & Repair on my MP3s and fixed them all, but this doesn't seem to have sorted the issue. The issue does appear to be OS X-specific, as playing audio in my Linux dual-boot overnight did not cause a crash. I'm on a MacBook Pro (Mid 2010) 17" with an i7, 8Gb RAM running Snow Leopard 10.6.7. iTunes version is 10.2.2 and Songbird version is 1.9.3.
