MacBook Pro :: Stuck Pixel Whenever Playing ITunes Movies And TV Shows?

Apr 16, 2012

Just got a brand new MacBook Pro 15" a week ago with the standard specs. I have noticed whenever I'm playing a video that's bought or downloaded from iTunes, a pixel on the up-left corner of the screen starts flashing between blue and black like crazy, at first I thought it was a physical defect, but when I stop playing videos the stuck pixel disappears. I ran a number of test and confirmed it wasn't the screen's problem. All the firmwares are up to date by the way.

MacBook Pro :: Blue Pixel In ITunes HD Movies?

Apr 22, 2012

I enjoy renting HD movies in iTunes, however, i noticed something really odd. It's barely noticeable when watching, but there's a blue pixel visible in all the HD movies I've watched recently. It is in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. I even re-installed Lion and it didn't fix it. Movies that have the blue pixel- MI4- Ghost Protocol, Atlantis, Puss in Boots, The World is Not enough, When in Rome, and Kung Fu Panda2.  I took the photo out of focus to enhance the blue pixel. The black is the bezel of the screen and the grey is just the backlight of the screen at the end of MI4.  The blue pixel tracks/moves with the full screen player when I do the three finger swipe to go between the desktop/dashboard. I know the screen is okay, just this seems odd...

ITunes :: Movies Not Playing In 10.5.3

Feb 14, 2012

In the past few days I have downloaded some movies through iTunes, some through iTunes purchases and some by entering the digital copy codes that came with DVDs/Blu-rays. When I try to sync these items with my iPad, I get a message that they cannot be synced. When I try to create an iPad version through the advanced menu, I get a message that they cannot be found. When I try to watch them on my MacBook using iTunes, I get a message that the movie requires QuickTime, which is not compatible with this version of iTunes.

How can I get these items to play and sync? They work if I open iTunes in 32-bit mode, but this is an annoying workaround. Plus, the iTunes support article says this is only necessary for "older media files" -- these are not old media; I just downloaded them. What is Apple doing selling files that are incompatible with its current version of iTunes? If I had known I had to go through such trouble to get them to play, I probably would not have bought them in the first place.

ITunes :: Unable To Add Movies Or TV Shows?

May 18, 2012

I am unable to import TV shows or movies purchased from the iTunes store to the iTunes library on my Mac Book Pro. What I do, is have a main iTunes library on my desktop Mac, where all my purchases get stored. I will then use the Import process via Home Sharing to put them on my MBP for when I'm travelling or away from home. I tried this yesterday and the files were transferred from my desktop to my MBP but are not showing up in iTunes. I have also tried the 'Add to library' and 'drag and drop' method direct from the MBP library location, but still no joy. It would seem that this has only started since the recent OSX 10.7.4 update, but I can't be sure.....I haven't needed to do it for almost two months.

Applications :: ITunes - Changing From Movies To TV Shows?

Aug 26, 2010

With the new iTunes 9.2.1(5), I seem to have trouble sorting some of my video files. Every video file (converted from .avi to .mp4 with Handbrake, using the "Universal Apple" preset) I throw at iTunes seem to be added to the Movies section. I tried updating the metadata from Get Info, filling out the Video tab with appropriate names, season number, episode number and episode ID. That didn't get anywhere. I tried putting "TV Shows" as a genre but that doesn't do anything either. I even tried making a new folder in the iTunes folder, naming it "TV Shows" and throwing videos in there.

ITunes For Mac :: Sharing Movies And TV Shows Over Same Network

Sep 1, 2014

A couple weeks ago, I purchased season 1 of Game of Thrones on the Blu-Ray Digital Combo pack so I could download the TV show onto my iTunes. I was able to download season 1 using the code that came with my DVD and it is on the iTunes on my macbook pro. Today, I purchased season 2 of the show and downloaded it onto the iTunes on my iMAC. My problem: Season 1 of Game of Thrones did not sync so it is not showing up on my iTunes on my iMAC. I use the same email, password, network, AND I have allowed home sharing amongst my apple devices. This has never happened before. How am I able to get my TV shows on both my iMAC and Macbook?

Applications :: ITunes Unofficial Artwork - Movies And TV Shows

Mar 5, 2008

Get artwork the movie industry deems you unworthy to have. You've bought your content - enjoy it on your HDTV properly UPDATES TO THIS THREAD: 04/25: After a long time of doing this thread, I was talked into putting all the posters onto a site rather than relying on this thread and imageshack (which kept removing the posters). I will still take personal requests on this thread, but I will not be updating the artwork on it. The links to the art will remain, but I will *NOT* be updating them. The new website is: [URL] We are talking to the MetaX developer in hopes of integrating into MetaX's system and we're trying to initiate talks with the TagChimp developer to try to help him out as well. We'll see where it goes. Anyhow, enjoy the site and feel free to add and request over there. Welcome to the Unofficial iTunes Artwork Thread. Obviously you're a movie fan, either with a movie collection or you just like the artwork. Either way, we're in the same boat. The problem is that the movie industry doesn't like you to determine how best to view your purchased (and legal) content. They want to dictate it to you. As such, they don't support you watching a new DVD encode through your AppleTV or Mac Mini - much less offer the artwork to make it look clean.....................

MacBook Pro :: High Definition Movies - Can't Display 1080p - Not Enough Pixel

Jul 4, 2010

if anyone here knows the answer reply:

1) Is it theoretically correct the 13'' can't display 1080p hd movies because there aren't enough pixels available?

2) Are 720p movies more suited for the 13''?

3) I'm currently using XBMC and AVS Video Converter, does XBMC perform better on certain video format? I still don't know which video format should i play HD movies on my mac

4) Can the current mbp 15'' play full HD movies (1080p)?

My current convert output setting: HD Video 720p H.264/AVC.

ITunes :: Get Tv Shows And Movies Backed Up On External Sata Drive?

Apr 11, 2012

I realised a couple of days ago that several of my movies and tv shows that I purchased are no longer downloaded on my computer but are stored on the cloud. Now how do I get a backup on my drobo external disk? I don't want to fall or be without wifi and not being able to watch movies or tv shows.

Music has a download icon next to it, but that is not there for movies and tv shows. I have my itunes folder on my drobo, and want to keep it that way...

ITunes :: Move Home Videos To Movies From The TV Shows Category?

In itunes on my iMac, most, but not all, of my home videos and homemade slide shows have been saved in the TV shows directory rather than the movies directory.  I've tried to move them to the movies directory in iTunes, but they won't be moved.  How can I move them, and then have the moves reflected on my iPad?

MacBook Pro :: Just Discovered A Stuck Pixel On 13-inch?

Oct 21, 2010

Recently, I just discovered a stuck pixel on my 13-inch MacBook Pro. I got it in June 2010 and somehow, there is a stuck pixel near the bottom of the screen. I have tried the widget where it flashes red, green and blue on a small area, but it didn't work. Oh yes, it appears, that using the widget, the pixel only appears when it is green, but not when it is red or blue.

In addition, on a standard background like white or when there is a slight tint of blue like the slightly bluish lines in Finder (in list view). However, the pixel cannot be seen on a black background. Even when the brightness is lowered, the pixel is highly visible, until of course when the brightness is zero.

Can anyone please offer some advice? I believe that it is the only stuck pixel I discovered so far.

MacBook Air :: Red Pixel Stuck In Middle Of Screen

May 29, 2008

After my great experience the last day with my two days old MBA 1.8Ghz/SSD I stopped smiling after I discover a stucked RED pixel in the middle of the screen. Normally I'm not such a whiner, but $3000 is a lot of money for a laptop, and I think you should expect a 100% flawless product for this huge amount of money. What to do? I tried the online video fixer for more then 10 minutes... didn't work. Should I give it a try at Apple? Or is it a no go? The problem is, I bought it at an Apple reseller who had this MBA as showroom demo for a month. So even though for me the product is only 2 days old, i think for Apple it is one month old and that would imply that I lost all my warranty and refund rights already. What to do?

MacBook Pro :: Stuck / Dead Pixel On Screen?

Aug 25, 2009

I noticed shortly after I bought my Mac last week that I had a stuck pixel. I don't know if it was there when I first turned it on or not, but I have been trying to ignore it, and really the reason is that if people see it, they will think what I have is defective, when it is really only one pixel that I can probably work back awake. I know I have OCD-tendencies, so I was wondering if there are people out there that have a stuck/dead pixel that they are okay with having on the screen! Sorry for the weird post, but I was hoping to find some posters who have gotten over the fact that a pixel of theirs is dead/stuck.

MacBook Pro :: Stuck Pixel Switches Between Green And Red

Aug 23, 2010

I have a dead/stuck pixel that one day can be green and one day be red. I dont really know what triggers it, if it can be some different colors I show on the screen? Anyway for hours and hours I've tried these websites that switches color several times each second claiming it will fix stuck pixels, but with no success. What can I do? I've heard that Macbooks have a "outer layer" of some sort on the screen, so you cant use the method to apply pressure on the screen, true? If is was just dead I would have no hope, but as it switches colors at least its alive.. Also, its really annoying as I've to always change background picture to hide the pixel

MacBook Air :: Dead Or Stuck Pixel On Left Of Screen

Nov 3, 2010

I have received my maxed out MacBook Air last week and did not even think about checking for dead or stuck pixels (not like my led TV which I had to return several times) until this article about Apple's policy was posted on Mac Rumors. That made me curious and I began starting to look for anomalies which resulted in finding 1 dead pixel on the lower left part of my screen. Of course now it is bugging me and I am really thinking about returning it because of the money I have spent on it. Should I call the Apple Care first or go straight to the store? Would they even consider replacing the unit granting they have one in stock?

MacBook :: Burn In Or Stuck Pixel In Middle Of Screen

Apr 7, 2009

Last week was spring break for me and I left my Macbook at home, didn't figure I would need it while on the beach. So when my macbook was at home it was completely off, not asleep, off and unplugged, didn't think it needed to be charged and wasting electricity. So when I get home, open it up, everything seemed fine, but then I passed a page on the web that was all black and noticed a funny shaped spot in the middle of the screen that doesn't display blacks correctly - it looks like a burn in but its an odd shape.

And its only on the blacks when its visible, I cant see it at all on any color. If you look at the pixels themselves upclose the middle is more grey and the outside is black. I tried running a burn in/stuck pixel thing for about an hour and it didn't help at all, so I am pretty curious as to what caused this. I got my macbook a few days b4 christmas so idk where that comes into replacing it or repairing it. I've started calling it a virus for fun that only likes to show up in the dark.
