Currently Being ModeratedJan 16, 2008 4:05 AM (in response to EchoTheGecko)I have the same problem...
After upgrading to 7.6 whenever I start watching a video within iTunes
(not Quicktime or VLC or anything else!!) the mouse does hardly react,
sound and videooutput laggs. If i react immediatly, i can quit iTunes
by pressing command-Q, if not, the userinterface of Tiger freezes
After several restarts (and reading EchoTheGecko's comment about not
hovering the in-video-menus from iTunes while playing a movie, it didn't
Now that it did work ONCE it seems to work all the time even when hovering
the menus. Something really went wrong, don't know what!!MacBookPro 2.4 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.4.11), iTunes 7.6, MacBookPro SantaRosa 2.4 Ghz C2D
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 21, 2008 4:44 PM (in response to EchoTheGecko)Did anyone ever find a solution to this. I've been having this very same problem except that it isn't confined to the hover controls. It happens mousing over any of the video as well.
Additionally iTunes 7.6.1 didn't fix this for me.MacBook Pro 2.4, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 4, 2008 4:22 PM (in response to EchoTheGecko)I had a somewhat similar problem where any video in iTunes would completely freeze my MBPro. I trashed the iTunes prefs in users/prefs and that seemed to fix the problem. Hope that helps you too.MacBook Pro 2.2, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 14, 2008 5:46 PM (in response to EchoTheGecko)Same issue w/7.6.1 under Leopard. Tried the suggestion to trash iTunes user prefs in my user library, and the problem was immediately resolved.G5 dual core 2.0, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 19, 2008 11:13 PM (in response to David Oei)Trashing my user prefs fixed most of the problems, but iTunes still freezes the entire laptop for a couple seconds at the beginning of the video =/ I'm getting a slew of errors in my system.log file too:
NVChannel(GL): Graphics channel exception! status = 0xffff info32 = 0xd = GR: SW Notify Error

Currently Being ModeratedJun 15, 2008 6:44 PM (in response to EER)Ditto for me. Launching a video in iTunes was crashing my OS so completely only a hard restart with the power button would free it.
Did the same fix, in Leopard. Specifically, I went to my user library, into the Preferences folder, and trashed these files:
Upon starting iTunes again, it acted like I was starting it for the first time, and just had to answer a few quick questions. Now videos play! Thanks, all.iMac G5, Mac OS X (10.5.3)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 29, 2008 2:07 AM (in response to RadioKeefe)I tried this last night having had the same problem with itunes. I thought it fixed everything, but tonight itunes froze on me again halfway through an episode of friends.
my question is, after i trash the settings files, do i need to leave my playback preferences on the standard settings?? the one thing i changed is that i'd like the default setting to play my videos in fullscreen. It seems that after I changed that in preferences the videos started malfunctioning again.
There is another thread related to rented movies that says there isnt a way to fix this until apple releases a new update. ??
thanks!imac g5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 20, 2008 11:22 AM (in response to EchoTheGecko)ok, now, Apple and everyone else, listen up:
I tracked that problem back to Perian, v1.1. After uninstalling that,
the problem is gone! Re-Installing Perian, and the problem is there again.
Again uninstalling and it is gone again!
So, problem solved, will post a bug-report over at Perians Homepage!
But for anybody else with my problem: Perian is guilty, not Apple.
