iTunes Film/TV Series Playback Fix

iTunes Film/TV Series Playback Fix

I still use iTunes, as unfortunately Windows users have no other option to use it to play their purchased content and sync with their i-devices, iTunes has never sucessfully played back purchased video content on my Windows PC.

My system uses an AMD Ryzen 3700X, previously I have used the 2700X, both configurations with different motherboards and graphics cards had the same problem, iTunes would freeze whenever I attempted to playback a film or TV series that I have purchased.

My theory is that this problem is more prevalent on AMD processor systems, I have iTunes installed on 5th Gen, 6th Gen and 11th Gen Intel system running Windows 10/11 and there has been no problem with video playback.

TLDR, switching to an Intel processor may to solve your iTunes video playback issues.

Hopefully Apple discontinue iTunes and give Windows users a working alternative that doesn’t require a specific processor.
