Hello all: I've been having a major issue with video playback within iTunes ever since I updated to version 9. I should note that the same problem exists with Quicktime, as I've tried to play video through it to determine whether or not iTunes was the issue. The problem occurs at random, during any video playback (Podcasts, Music Videos, TV Shows, Movies, Movie Trailers, even video previews within the iTunes Store). During playback, the video will suddenly freeze, while the audio will continue another half-second or so before stopping. Both the audio and video will stop, and playback will resume (with audio and video) six to eight seconds later, skipping ahead in the video the same six to eight seconds. Again, there is no pattern to the stuttering; I've had luck where I'll go many minutes without, and on the other end I've had several instances of stuttering in the span of only a few seconds. I've had little luck researching the problem through Google, and I've tried to deal with it, but it's become very difficult given that I use iTunes for 99% of my media. I'm forced to hover my cursor over the in-video toolbar during playback to keep it up so I can find the correct spot in the video after the stuttering stops. Difficult and distracting, but necessary. I should note: - I'm using a four year-old Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop, with Windows XP Professional SP3. I've got 2GB of RAM, so memory really shouldn't be an issue. - Updating to iTunes 9.0.1 did nothing to solve this issue. Have yet to update to the latest, but I'm skeptical. - I've attempted to update my graphics processor's driver, as others with somewhat similar issues have suggested doing such. My GPU, an ATI Radeon, has an update available on ATI's website, however whenever I download an update I get an incompatibility issue. Needless to say, if this is the problem I may be in trouble. At any rate, I'm hoping for a solution. Perhaps others have had similar issues? I'd love to have this fixed, and would really appreciate some feedback and assistance. Thanks.
