On initial install (I upgraded from SL) iTunes wouldn't launch. It gave an error saying it can't read my iTunes library since it was created with a newer version of iTunes. I guessed this was because I had 10.5 beta 2 installed before the upgrade and it was overwritten with 10.4 during the install, so I just downloaded and installed 10.5 beta 3 and that fixed the problem.

It works fine for me. I upgraded from Snow Leopard, and installed iTunes 10.5 Beta 3 just fine. Full screen and everything else works just fine.

I'm having a problem where it won't play some of my .m4v videos, and gives me an error saying "This movie requires QuickTime, which is not supported by this version of iTunes." However, the videos will work when I play them separately through the QuickTime Player, just not through iTunes. It worked perfectly fine in Snow Leopard though.

If you run iTunes in 32-bit mode (Get info on Applications:iTunes.app and check 32-bit mode) the QuickTime videos should work again.

After deleting the videos that weren't working, then re-imported them, they worked again. However, .mov and .mp4 videos don't seem to work in quicktime anymore.
