I have downloaded the recent iTunes 10.6. I would like to watch rented movies on my MacBook Pro without having an internet connection (ie from the plane). Is this possible? I don't see any recent posts discussing this topic.
Cant seem to find any topics on AI about this, but there is on the apple discussion boards. I have the new mac mini connected to an old plasma. I tried to watch a rented movie (through iTunes) but all I get is a black screen and no sound. It downloads ok and has all the chapters etc.... but just wont show any picture or sound when I play it. Things I have tried:
1. reinstalled Quicktime 2. installed lastest firmware 3. purchased a song to confirm my computer is authorized
The movie was in SD, from what I have read the problem only occurs with HD, but not for me.
I have a macbook pro with OS 10.7 Lion, only 6 months old but cant acces movies or itunes on the store to buy. All other features on itunes store seem ok ie Apps, books, podcast etc i have tried updating s/w and all other first line suggestions in the manual with no success.
Info: MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4), I have apple care protection plan.
I know your able to now redownload your previous purchases (ie. movies and music etc) through the purchases menu of the iTunes store but for some reason their is only one of my purchases in there but the rest are all missing.
Since my iMac hard drive space (2 terabite) is almost half-full of the Movies I have in my iTunes, I would like to be able to set up my iTunes to store and play the movies from an external hard drive.I just bought a 4 terabite G-Drive for doing this.I would also like to be able to view the movies on my two differant Apple TV's.
I just recently started my Itunes account, I noticed that some of the categories are missing like Music, TV shows, Movies, Audiobooks. The only categories present are AppStore, Podcasts and Itunes U. How to add the missing categories?
I'm thinking of either going for the new 24" LED display or a 32" 1080 television primarily to watch blu-ray movies. The television would be larger but the cinema display would have more utility. From what I've read, the cinema display under bootcamp passes the HDCP test so watching blu-ray movies works. I've noticed that the screen has a 14ms lag though, which seems quiet high when compared to typical lcds, but manufactures calculate this differently. So how is the motion blur on the set? Does anybody here watch blu-ray movies on it? If so how does it compare to a nice television set?
I know this is kind of a weird question but is there a software that will allow me to watch multiple movie files at the same time in the same application. Right now if i want to do that i have to use VLC, Movist and Quicktime all at the same time to do what it is i am trying to do. Wondering if there is an easier way.
I have an emac 700 mhz power pc g4 with 512 mb, running 10.4.11. I cannot watch any video or movies on line. When I play these movies the playback is slow, so the sound is faster than the movies. It looks like I am watching in slow motion. I have everything up to date on this computer.
Basically I can't decided between the 11 inch or 13 inch Air and thats due to the fact of not having any idea if the 11 inch will be capable of handling the tasks that I need. I have a ton of 1080p/720p mkv movies that I always watch on my current early 2006 macbook, that's a must do for my upgrade to an Air. The second part of what I will be doing is having a dump site for my pictures.
I have a T1i and take a ton of photo's nothing professional or anything, but as a poorly touched hobby. I have been considering using iphoto/Aperture since its only 79.99 in the new app store. I am just slightly concerned if the little 11inch can handle simple aperture photo edits, to fix crappily taken photos. The ability to play my movies is the most important issue, the whole picture thing can be sorted out on the Quad core Pc in the office.
I have a Dell laptop set up to an external hard drive so I can watch movies. I have set it up so I can connect to the laptop to watch the movies. Is there any way I can see the external HDD through my mac? I tried creating a shortcut, but since OSX cant read .ink files, it doesnt work.
My wife loves to watch Thai movies and tv shows online. Unfortunately we have had to settle for watching everything in very small windows, as the "full size" options never work. I assume this is because these websites are set up for windows. We currently need to use Flip4Mac to watch these sites. We are using Safari as our browser. Any one have any idea if we would have better luck with another browser, or another video player? I could just install different browsers and video players and try them out, but I was hoping someone may be able to point us in the right direction so we don't have to install, then try and un-install a bunch of stuff, and I certainly don't want to install windows!
I want to buy a new MacBook Pro. I was wondering how much profit I would get out of bumping my processor speed. I do a lot of movie encoding or however you call it. (How much faster would it go with a new processor?) How fast a processor do I need to be able to watch 1080p movies natively on the screen (or what other specs)? And on a 24" external display? I'm wondering because on my current build I am not able to watch a 720p movie without the movie jamming every five seconds.
I've got a softmodden XBOX (1) with a 500GB HDD wich I mainly use to watch movies on my tv (XBMC). I've got an MacBook and an iPhone wich syncs with the MacBook. Is there any way I can tell my MacBook iTunes library that the mp3's and movies are on a shared map of the XBOX? What I want is this:
- Watch movies and listen to mp3's on my XBOX with XBMC in the livingroom (already doing that) - Sync my iPhone with the iTunes on my MacBook with mp3's/movies from the XBOX - Use an Airport Express in my studyroom with the mp3's on my XBOX (I'm also planning to use a part of the 500GB XBOX HDD for Time Machine, but that's a different story)
