Ran through all the suggested fixes and some others. what is the real fix for itunes movie playback. Its choppy and out of sync. I pay good hard earned money for these movies instead of torrent rips. i do remember a time when the movies would play just fine and then???? it not like i can just convert due to the DRM and play on a seperate piece of software. Do i need the latest and greatest cpu? As stated the movies played a few versions ago and now just garbage. should i just no longer pay for movies and the like and just rip em? They will go on my devices once i convert them anyway...I know this sounds wrong on this forum  but does anyone know any software that can remove the DRM properly so that a paying customer like myself can watch a movie purchased from itunes.  Or is there another legal means to buy movies online without the BS of DRM and crumby itunes player. Id prefer a real fix for itunes however but this is runnimg on to long. im not the only one i know this heck i work with a few others who have similar playback issues.  Running out of patience can some solutions be presnted.

    Try repair your QuickTime.

     

    Control Panel > Add n Remove Programs > Highlight "QuickTime" and click CHANGE, then REPAIR.

    We cannot discuss the removal of DRM in these forums.

     

    is there another legal means to buy movies online without the BS of DRM

     

    No, not on any platform. All legal sellers of movies I know of are required by the movie studios to have DRM.

     

    I don't know what specific steps you've tried, but you might review this support document and see if there is a suggestion you've not attempted yet:

    I was having this problem and it was actually related to the syncing of my devices. I used wireless sync to sync my iphone and pad and everyitme a synced kicked off it would trash my video playback. I disconnected the networking to stop the wireless syncing and the movie played back flawlessly.
