i have a bunch of .mov files that originated when I used my iPad to take video of my kids' sporting activities. I moved these files to a separate external HDD. I had to do a complete system reinstall on my PC (vista sp2) last week and reinstall iTunes. Now when I try to watch any .mov file in iTunes, the video doesn't play smooth. It skips and jumps. I don't think it's the file because I saved one of them to a thumbdrive and played it with no problem on my sons MacBook.........

Any suggestions on where to begin would be greatly appreciated.

First try copying it to the hard drive then if that doesn't work try using QuickTime.

Tried It...no luck. QuickTime videos do the same thing.

Is there a compelling reason to use iTunes (Quicktime) as your player ?  It might be worth your time trying a different player. this would at least determine if it was the player or the file(s). I would suggest Videolan's VLC player - it can play almost anything and its freeware. You can get it here -

Yes, VLC is another good choice.
