    Hi,

    I've setup an iTunes server on a machine running OS X 10.5.5 but for some reason some of the movies play across the network and some don't. Playing the content locally off that machine works fine but as soon as the network is involved some don't work. And the same is true from all my networked machines and it's the same movies that don't work. About 1/3 to 1/2 don't work.

    What happens when I double click the movies that don't work is that the "loading" window comes up and then nothing happens. This doesn't make any sense to me...

    Help appreciated, thanks.

    I've worked out what it is. It's files over 4 GB that don't play across the network using the iTunes server. They stream fine when not using iTunes. Has this been addressed in iTunes 8 because I believe I'm running 7 on the server? Are there any fixes to this?
