    I am trying to listen to preview songs on the itunes store but every few seconds I get a re-buffering stream...What can I do?

    Let it buffer longer before starting it. Hit pause when it starts and wait a minute.

    Also, check the Advanced tab in your preferences. Is the buffer set to low or high?

    Yeah, give it some time to buffer before you start playing. If you've ever watched a YouTube video in HD, you'll have had to do the same thing, because often it can't buffer fast enough for the playing :)

    I get that problem every once in a while. I usually give up because no amount of buffering seems to fix it, especially when it starts refusing to even start playing the preview.
