All of a sudden, while playing a song on the itunes store or a podcast on the podcast store, I can't skip ahead to a specific time.

When I click ahead, the cursor reaches that location, then immediately pulls back and fast forwards the play location by about 5 seconds.

This is extremely frustrating and is seemingly happening out of no where.

  • Are the songs saved locally or is it happening on files from cloud/iTunes match, etc.? – Kevin Grabher Apr 16 '15 at 22:10
  • It was happening on the store. However once I downloaded the podcast it let me skip anywhere I chose. I do remember it allowing me to skip to anywhere while still in preview though. – Adam Bronfin Apr 16 '15 at 23:13
  • Sounds like a networking issue. When you play a song in the store does it immediately start playing or do you have to wait? What's your result on a speed test? – Kevin Grabher Apr 16 '15 at 23:20
  • It plays instantaneously. – Adam Bronfin Apr 16 '15 at 23:26
  • I've found similar on YouTube videos. Workaround is to pause playback, skip to where you want, start playback. – Tetsujin Apr 17 '15 at 7:09
