Same Problem...Download OK...Hit Play and iTunes Freezes...not using any CPU bandwidth...but iTunes is locked up. Can kill iTunes and systems wants to send a debug report.
Tried viewing in QuickTimePlayer but no video and no sound.
Finally, switched to different account on same PC. Worked OK. Difference was the preferences for QuickTimePlayer. Seems that by choosing GDI (Safe Mode) in QuickTimePlayer, then iTunes freezes when playing the rented movie. I suspect that this is due to some DRM protection features. (Don't want anyone grabbing frames) Anyway, I use the GDI (Safe Mode) as it is the only way to get my nVidia card to export the video to my large TV.
So, iTunes movie rental works if I use DirectX as the video method selected in QuickTimePlayer. BUT, now I have to watch it on my small computer monitor. Not really a long term solution. So, I probably will not rent with iTunes again.
