Greetings all.


Bit of a mystery here.


I have a Late 2009 iMac that I occasionally use Win7 on via Boot Camp for gaming.


I have iTunes installed so I can watch Movies/TV Shows from my library (served via iTunes running on 2012 i7 Mac Mini).


When playing any video in Windows 7 with iTunes (SD/HD), it stutters, skips and eventually stalls.


The curious issue is when booted into OS X, I can play the same video in iTunes with no problem.


I have attempted the fix in the KB article related to iTunes/Windows 7 video playback.

(disable Direct3D accel/Disable DirectX in QuickTime)


The iMac specs are:

i7, 16GB RAM, 2TB HDD, 512MB Radeon 4850M, 1Gbit wired ethernet to same switch as Mini

OS X 10.8.5

Windows 7 64-bit, SP1



iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1), Late 2009 i7, 16GB, 2TB HDD
