How to fix Lag and choppy playback during Watching iTunes movies in Windows


Choppy playback in iTunes on Windows is often caused by the sound output format in iTunes not matching what has been configured in Windows:

  1. Right-click on Speaker icon in the notification area, then select Playback devices.
  2. In the Sound window right-click on your active output device and select Properties.
  3. In the device properties window, select the Advanced tab.
  4. Here you have default format; sample rate and bit depth. Now check what has been configured in iTunes.
  5. In iTunes, press Alt+E and select Preferences.
  6. In the Preferences window select the Playback tab.
  7. In the low part of the window you have ‘Bitrate for Audio Playback’ and
    ’Bits Per Sample For Audio Playback’. Match this up with the sound setting in step 4 above.
