QotD: iTunes Video Playback

Question: Why does iTunes' video playback still suck?

My Answer: Heck if I know. I switch apps and the playback halts for a few seconds. The framerate is sometimes terrible. QuickTime Player can do the same thing without any problem, so why can't iTunes? I don't know.

  1. Because you have to install QT to install iTunes so that's what they expect you to use? I don't know.

  2. I don't know. Personally I'd like it to open QT on double click like iPhoto does with its movies. As of now when I do need to watch a video I right click and select "Show Song File" (another nice UI issue) and then manually drag the file to the QT Player in the dock.

  3. I too would really like to know the answer to this question.
