Sometimes when I double click a downloaded .pls file to launch a music stream in iTunes, the music is REALLY squelchy. It literally hurts my ears. If you have ever heard an old Telephony modem, it sound very similar to that but at one constant pitch.
If I stop and restart it usually fixes the problem (by double-clicking the same .pls file) , but I want to know why it does it in the first place.
At present I do not have a recording of the issue, but I will add when I can reproduce it.
OS - Yosemite Macbook Air
Using the same network (Wifi included) my Linux and Android systems never exhibit this. Only the iTunes on the Macbook Air.
I believe I have the answer. If I pause the player, it works fine. If I stop the player unintentionally, by closing the lid for example, the issue presents itself. Seems like a buffer issue with iTunes I don't know!?
I can consistently repeat this.
