Hi guys,
I just moved into college and have been trying to play videos that come under the shared column down the left hand side of iTunes. Unfortunately for any long video (i.e. a movie) it takes about 20 seconds to load and then nothing happens. The movie title comes up in the media player at the top of itunes, however it remains at 0:00 and will not play. If I click the bar to skip to the middle of the movie or anything, the bar will move along but still there is no video and it just remains at the position I clicked.

I have found out that shorter videos will still work.

I was just wondering if there was a way to enable me to watch these longer videos?

Thanks a lot for any help.

(Moderator edit: thread moved to more appropriate forum. jgw)

What system...you posted in the iPad forum...are you trying this on an iPad or a real system?

Aside from iTunes videos...have you tried any other video files?

Woops. Sorry about that. I'm on a PC with XP.

I've tried other videos and they work fine, its just the ones that I am trying to watch through the network.
