I have purchased/rented a movie (SD) and it is not playing... I have downloaded 1GB and the alert "ready to play" does not appear. Besides this, a doubleclick opens the Quicktime window and the player icons, but the movie does not start. The correct time is displayed and when I scroll the timeline I can see the pictures, but the play-button does not start playing the movie... I have the same problem with another movie :-(

EDIT: I used the native Apple iTunes Store (is there any other store?!)

  • What service did you download the movie from or through? Commented Dec 9, 2012 at 20:49

Try setting your computers clock a day in advance.

I have seen a time-zone issue where the the movie won't play until the computers clock is set to the following day.

Give that a try.


re-start your device, and take a try.
