iTunes on OS X 10.8.5 MacBook Air is showing weird behavior recently. When I rent a movie from the iTunes store I have the following problems:

  1. download is incredibly slow (ETA keeps going up to several hours) and
  2. the movie will freeze when I unpause movie playback.

iTunes is basically unusable in this state. Did you ever come across a similar problem? Any ideas how to solve it?

What I tried so far (will update):

  • Onyx system cleanup
  • Re-download re-install iTunes
  • more likely to be your network setup - are you wired or wifi? If WiFi, do you have QoS & WMM switched on at your router? – Tetsujin Mar 8 '15 at 19:30
  • On Wifi and both are active. Also my other MBP on Yosemite now is affected. I did not change my network setup... – n1000 Mar 9 '15 at 20:06
  • not a permanent fix, but a possibility - power-cycle the modem/router/AP, if you haven't done yet. Most of them have a brain the size of a peanut & get 'too full of information' after a while, in true Homer Simpson style. – Tetsujin Mar 9 '15 at 20:09
  • :D Yeah. A couple of times already... – n1000 Mar 9 '15 at 20:12
