When I play a movie in iTunes, it plays good for a bit, then brief pauses happen?  How can I make this stop?

Mac mini (Mid 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    Sounds like your movies are buffering, how fast is your internet service?


    If you have a Broadband Internet Service Provider, contact and have them check your connection speed.


    If you have a slower DSL connection like me, then you will need to either download a lower resolution version or find a faster Internet Service Provider.

    Thank you.  I have Internet service through my cable provider. The other thing is the movie is stored on the Mac mini's hard drive. This just started when I downloaded the new version of iTunes. Almost wish I could go back to the previous version of iTunes that I had.

    How full is your Mac Mini's Hard Drive, it will read slower as it gets full.


    If that is the case, you may want to move your iTunes media library to a larger External Hard Drive.
