:mad:Hello all,

I am using a PC & my iTunes will not play any of my movies & videos. I can open them and they seem to load(not properly) then it all goes down hill from there. I see the picutre then the sound starts skipping and the video jumps and begins to skip as well. It never loads and runs smoothly. Then when I try to close the player it just locks up and freezes. This happens with my own video files as well as files that I have purchased from iTunes. I can play my videos in Windows Media player.

Can anyone help me?!

You will probably get some better advice, but I would delete iTunes from my system, and reload it. It's a place to start. Also do you have the latest iTunes? I am assuming the video's not from iTunes are in the right format.

I think it has something to do with QuickTime. More than likely I think it has something to do with video codec's or video card. In my case I'm not sure, I have a descent speed processor 1.4 GHZ AMD athlon, 756 or somewhere around the 700's in ram and a video card with 256 ram agp. I think that's the problem, the card may be too only to display the video correctly.
