    Problems with media stopping and starting
    I have recently become the proud owner of a MacBook Pro. As you will see from the below spec it is a decent machine and quite a new spec.

    When playing audio through iTunes or VLC music stops and starts sometimes with pauses of 1 second.

    I have closed all applications but the problem still persists. Checking available memory / cpu usage there is not visible reason why it should be doing this.

    Can anybody please help me as this is driving me mad.

    Model Name: MacBook Pro

    Are you playing the music through a wireless network? I've noticed this problem recently as well. My media is on a Time Capsule which is played through a Mac in another room.

    It seems that once in a while my network slows to the point where I get the behavior you describe. I think it happens when my non N network iPhone connects to the network.
