I have had several movies that I have rented on my Macbook Air and then transfer to my Ipad...they just disapear when I go back a couple of days later...not an expiration issue as it is within the 30 days..
Can they be played this way? We know that Front Row can access iTunes because it shows the Top 10 Movies in the Movies Section, but when I rented a movie last night, it didn't show up there. Is something wrong? If not, why hasn't Apple came out with a fix for it.
I've been waiting for a long time now.That was at Macworld two thousand and EIGHT! Later that year? It's been two years now. All this time I've been waiting for this. And still nothing. When are they going to do this? 2044?
I am currently relaxing on the nice Beach of jamaica and have rent a movie from my German iTunes store. After clicking "Rent" and confirming the movie is not appearing under the "Download" Tab in iTunes neither in the Library.
I rented a movie in iTunes and using the movies tab of my iPad, I clicked "Move" to move the movie over to the iPad. WHen I sync the device, it goes through the motions and after finishing, it moves the movie back over the iTunes side of the display. Effectively, not transferring the rented movie.I tried this same thing on my iPhone and got the same result.I'm using the latest version of iTunes and the iOS 5.1 on both the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4.
I have already rented several HD movies straight to my iPad (1) and never had a problem. Tonight however I decided to try a new thing and insted of renting straight to the iPad I tried to rent it in iMac first (iTunes) and than move it to the iPad (thought the download could be quicker and was right: it took some 15min to download an HD movie with the iMac when it normaly takes some 45min with the iPad on the same network).
The problem is, when I try to move the movie into the iPad and click "Apply", I get the message saying that "This movie can not play on this iPad".... I tried to do it directkly on the iPad (and paid for the movie again...) and it downloaded just fine... (though it took 45 minutes).
I rented a movie on iTunes via my iPad.It loaded properly. I hit play and Air Play so it would connect to my Apple TV. I can now HEAR the movie, but I cannot see it (having said that, I see the movie, still, on my iPad screen....). Apple TV and AirPlay work fine with youtube videos and previously bought movies.
Just paid for a movie on iTunes, (The Great Escape), but it won't play on my iMac or transfer to my iPad... what gives? When I try to play the movie I get error: "This movie requires QuickTime, which is not supported by this version of iTunes."When I try to move it to my iPad I get the error: "The Great Escape (1963)" was not copied to the iPad (My iPad) because it cannot be played on this iPad." I have iTunes 10.6.1 (7) 64-bit on a brand new iMac 2.7 Ghz Intel Core i5 with OSX 10.7.4. I'm a little ticked that I can't see a movie I just paid $9.99 for.
I have rented two movies, but either the selection of movies is tiny, or I am looking in the wrong place. I thought all the studios were on board and that thousands of movies would be available. I saw a few, and unless I was lookin in the wrong place, I wasn't too impressed by the selection.
I do think this would be a good idea. I'd rather rent a TV episode - watch it once - and then have it go - as opposed to a movie. Do you think there's any way Apple would, and could, ever implement this?
bought a TV show and rented a couple of movies in iTunes to watch during flight on my macbook air like at least 30 times before. However, every time I click on play I get the following "this movie can be played only on displays that support HDCP." i am livid. What is going on? My rental 24 hour limit kicked in without me being able to watch a single microsecond of the movie. This is not the first time that I have difficulties getting something what I paid for in Itunes. This is very delicate for a company that prides itself of being high-quality.
I just finished a survey on iTunes usage by the NPD Group, and on one the selections it told me if I had rented a TV episode or season? I took a screenshot just in case. See the last two selections.This could be a part of a plan to take people away from Netflix because they too have TV seasons for rent.
I was watching a movie that I rented on iTunes and it froze halfway through so I closed iTunes and forced quit it but when I opened it again my rented movie didn't even show up (this was within the 24 hour rental period, it's only been 4 hours so far). Is apple allowed to do this or is there something wrong with my account?
can anyone tell me what i may be doing wrong? i am trying to create a movie using video clips from my camera. when i download my movies to iphoto, they work great. when i drag them to imovie, they play but i do not get any sound. the 3 little check marks are there but still no sound!
