    Sorry if this has been mentioned before (I haven't yet come across anybody with the same issue)....

    so yeah since installing iTunes 7 none of my videos tv shows/music videos have been playing smoothly at all. they seem to be doing about 1 frame per second or something which is very jumpy and unwatchable. I'm rather dissapointed.

    I realize it may be due to my specs,
    but I have an eMac with a 1Ghz G4 and 512mb ram which isn't exactly terrible and the same videos play perfectly in Quicktime 7.1.3.

    Anybody in the same boat as I?

    No issues here as of yet.

    I am playing an episode of Mythbusters on my G3 B&W as I type. When was the last time you did a "Repair disk permissions" on your system?

    It could be that you have some minor file issues causing slow reads. Also, are you low on disk space ?

    I repaired permissions last week I think. I know I've done it since installing iTunes 7 but I'll do it again just incase.

    I have 7.88/80 GB free.. I guess you could call that low :p

    edit: make that 12.78 GB (just deleted some crap), playback is still choppy.. can't tell if it's improved slightly or not.
