I want to change the buffering of streaming radio in iTunes 10.5. Every help document I've found online says to go to Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced Tab. I see no such buffer option there. I'm running on Windows XP Service Pack 3.

I really hope they add the buffer option back - it's really useful in controlling the smoothness to real-time-ness (if that's a word) ratio. – user18607 Feb 12 '12 at 1:52

I recall seeing it there once upon a time. It appears they've removed this option.

Thanks. Bummer. Using Windows Media Player for streaming radio it is. – Chance Oct 20 '11 at 17:05
