ITunes For Mac :: Starts Up On Its Own / Pauses And Plays Intermittently

Jun 3, 2014

iTunes has a mind of its own after the recent update. Opens on its own, starts playing, gets stuck, gets unstuck. I close it, it opens again.

Applications :: ITunes Pauses Songs Unexpectedly

Sep 28, 2007

last updates of iTunes there seems to be a problem with playing music: iTunes just randomly pauses and continues playing after a while.I believe this all started after updating to 7.4.1 it was really bad then, iTunes would pause like 20 times during a song and it would take very long for a new song to start.

Software :: Unexplained Airtunes / Itunes Pauses

Oct 3, 2005

almost everytime I use airtunes, somewhere in the middle of a song, the music will quit unexpectedly. sometimes the music will resume in a three-count, sometimes longer, sometimes not at all. When i look at itunes, it looks like the song is just paused - meaning the little diamond that shows where you are in the song in the display along the top isn't inching along anymore, however the actual PAUSE button on the upper left has not been selected (meaning there is not a PLAY arrow displayed. the double bar PAUSE button is still showing). I have tried:

stopping the song (clicking the PAUSE button) and then starting it again
quitting itunes and restarting
restarting my ibook (G4)
unplugging my airport express and plugging it back in to reboot
using the airport admin aplication
completely unplugging EVERYTHING (modem, airport base station, airport extreme) and then slowly rebooting them all in order
upgrading itunes to the current version

at first, I thought it was a problem with airtunes, like the signal got lost or something, but after looking at itunes and realizing the song isn't *going* anymore, i thought the problem was with the application. but I don't know. I've never experienced this if i use the computer speakers, but then again, I hardly ever use them so I really don't know that for sure. oh, and I bought my airport base station *after* the airport express, and I'm pretty sure this problem was happening when my "network" was just my ibook and the express. (my experience level: I'm a former PC'er. I'm fairly knowlegable, but more on the software end. I know *nothing* when it comes to mac hardware.

ITunes :: Pauses Music Playback When Import CD?

Jun 14, 2012

I use my Mini as a music server with all music stored on an external RAID. If I import a CD while iTunes is playing music, it will finish the song and then pause the playback. Is there a workaround so it can both import and play at the same time?

Apr 16, 2012

Before moving to a new Mac I backed up my old itunes music library.xml file and manually added all of my music files to itunes on my new mac. 

Does anybody know a way of getting my old information such as ratings, number of plays etc from the old library into the new one?

ITunes :: Everytime Plays A Song?

May 29, 2012

I have a Mac Pro 5,1, 16 GB, 2T Startup Drive & three other drives for additional storage and Time Machine. 

My finder & Dashboard quits and re-starts every time iTunes plays a new song.  The screen goes completely gray & blank under whatever I may have open.  It lasts only momentarily, but is quite annoying.  As part of the troubleshooting, I ran Disk Utility.  Checked permissions which were OK.  Checked verify disk & got result that the disk is corrupt & should be repaired.  When I tried to start my computer from the Recovery disk (using the Option key), it would not start (going instead to a gray patterened screen).  I tried this several times & one time it did go to the screen showing the Recovery disk and my startup disk.  But when I selected the Recovery disk, it went to the gray patterned screen again.  I then connected my Mac Pro to my MacBook Pro & booted the Mac Pro to Target Disk mode.  When I ran Disk Utility Repair Disk on the Mac Pro's startup disk, the result showed no problem with the disk.  I'm not sure where to go from here, so I can use some help.

Applications :: ITunes Only Plays Checked Songs

Jan 5, 2010

All the songs that are synced onto my iPhone are check marked in iTunes. When playing songs in iTunes, it only plays the checked songs. Is there a ways to make it also shuffle in uncheck songs when playing through iTunes?

ITunes :: Opens And Plays Certain MP3 Files Automatically

Feb 3, 2012

This just started in the last week or two, but my itunes will be completely closed, and suddenly it opens and play a certain mp3 file, then the next then one more. This isn't any particular playlist or anything. The files are probably all in my download folder and it just goes in order. This happens many times per day. Often times my computer was actually asleep and it wakes it to play these files.

Looking at my console log, I get the following two things right when it happens.
2/3/12 8:48:09.366 AM [0x0-0x1f11f1] Returning 0x0. Advertising wake service for libraryIdentifier "EA6D19640E6DBDE0".
2/3/12 8:48:20.346 AM [0x0-0x1f11f1] Version from driver for Certificates 1

So I'm assuming whatever is happening has to do with these log items. How to stop this? It's very bothersome when I'm in the middle of a business call, etc. I need to keep my MBP volume up as well because I have various alerts I need to hear.

Applications :: ITunes Automatically Plays Unrelated Songs?

Sep 26, 2010

This has happened for a few months now, ever since I upgraded to iTunes 8 I believe, and now that I'm using iTunes more often it's starting to get annoying. I will play an album in iTunes. Once the album finishes, instead of stopping playback, iTunes will play an apparently random song from my library (though each album seems to be linked to a different song, which changes every now and then. I've been unable to find any pattern). Does anyone know what I'm talking about or have any ideas? I don't think this is just a problem for me - it happens to some friends who have iTunes as well. I've searched on Google and on this forum and couldn't find any solutions.

ITunes :: Window Pops Up When Music Video Plays?

Jun 8, 2012

When a video track begins, the iTunes window comes up, even if I've got iTunes hidden.  (Note: it doesn't bring the iTunes application to the foreground; it just shows the iTunes window behind my current window.) 

Clearly, this is not the behavior I want when it's _hidden_!  ...But I can't find any way to stop this behavior

P.S. This is iTunes version 10.6.1(7) on OS 10.7.4.  Also, I'm running SizzlingKeys 3.3.5, if that matters (there doesn't seem to be a preference in this app to control window behavior...).

Song Plays In ITunes / But File Does Not Show In Finder

Jun 16, 2012

My 26,000+ song iTunes Library lives on an external LaCie drive. All the songs play fine in iTunes (and I can hear the drive spin up when I go to play them). However, for a few thousand of the songs, the song's file is not in the physical location where iTunes shows it to be.An example is below these are two song file locations from the 'Master Tune Library.xml' exported from iTunes.Both of these files show in iTunes, and they both play just fine from iTunes (no exclamation mark next to the song names). Yet only the first file (one ending in 1219.mp3)is at that location.The one ending in 1249.mp3 does not show in that location, either via Finder, or via Terminal.

From Terminal I get no results from "find /Volumes/LaCie500 -name espace_20101103_1249.mp3" (without the dbl quotes) But if I run the same command for the 1219 file, it does find it in the expected location.Really stumped as from where iTunes is playing 1249.mp3. [code] iTunes Media folder location is /Volumes/LaCie500/myTunes Both options underneath for "organize" and "copy files when adding to Library" are checked.

ITunes For Mac :: 11.2.2 - Why Doesn't Number Of Plays Get Synced From IPod

Jun 5, 2014

ipod shuffle, the little square one, 4th or maybe 5th generation.

Mac OS X 10.7.5

itunes 11.2.2 

I listen to something on my ipod. I plug the ipod into my computer. In itunes, on the ipod, I can see the track I listed to has number of plays 1. That track in the library on the computer fails to get any plays next to it. Why? Why does this stuff never really work properly? I'm sure it used to work, but I could be wrong. It's not working now. Plays on/from the ipod don't get registered on the computer. This means I don't know which tracks I've listed to and which I haven't.

ITunes For Mac :: Starts Playing Songs On Its Own?

Sep 10, 2014

I haven't changed anything recently to my computer, I don't have any widgets or third-party programs, I don't have an Apple remote, but every ten minutes, my iTunes opens itself and begins playing music. If I have my iPod plugged in or not plugged in, it doesn't matter. If the program is already open, it will start playing randomly.

ITunes :: It Keeps Opening By Itself And Starts Playing Music?

Mar 21, 2012

My iTunes keeps opening by itself and starts playing music. I cannot figure this out. I turned off the "Sync Via Wireless" on all my gadgets, but this continues to happen. This has woken me up in the middle of the night until I got so tired of it I just shut my Mac down.

MacBook Air :: When Earphones Plugged In / ITunes Starts Playing Music Automatically

Jun 27, 2014

I have a mac air version 10.9.3 running on mavericks and whenever I plug in my apple earphones, or any earphones with a mic and remote on the cable, itunes starts playing music without me touching anything. It plays music every time the contact plug of the earphones moves in the computer (like if I move the computer and the jack plug gets jiggled) and I don't know how to keep it from doing that. I tried quitting itunes but it didn't work.

Mac Pro :: IPhoto 11 Lags - Pauses In Transition

Oct 21, 2010

Is iPhoto graphic card intensive? On my Early 2008 MP every time I go to full screen mode (already evident in '09) the graphics card fan spins up and there is a discernible pause in transitioning. I think with Lion's big emphasis on full screen functionality, I will be annoyed to death with the pause and annoying fan's whirl.

Is the 2600xt really that outdated? I don't want to get a card for gaming purposes but something that will remedy this. During the presentation you see how fast the applications respond and they're using a iMac. I thought with 8cores I would be at least on par but it could be the graphics card as well. Such a downer.

Software :: Snow Leopard Freezes/pauses?

Sep 22, 2009

Wondering if this is just me... I have a 17"MBP, 8GB, 10.6.1; having occasional, temporary freezes ("pauses" perhaps) where there is no beach ball....just all activity stops for 20-30 seconds and then it resumes like nothing happened (and catches up on all of the clicks and such that happened during the pause).

This often, but not always, happens when switching spaces (I have VMWare running XP in a second space).

OS X :: Streaming Flash Video Pauses For Few Seconds

Feb 12, 2009

Sometimes when I'm streaming flash videos (youtube and other sites) the video pauses, even though it has loaded the rest of the video. It usually locks up Firefox for about 20 seconds and then continues playing the rest of the video. What could this be? I am running the latest version of flash as well. Maybe I don't have enough cache allotted to handle it in Firefox?

MacBook Pro :: QuickTime X Video Pauses During Playback

Aug 29, 2009

I'm trying to figure this out and I've gone through 'Energy Saver' settings and turned off 'Put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible' but sometimes - not reliably, playback of a video file just pauses and then resumes as normal after about 10 seconds. It happened just the same with QT and Perian under Leopard and now happens in Snow Leopard too. Similarly, this sort of oddness happens with playback on VLC too.
