    iTunes frustration
    Once I could find a tune in the library, double click on it and it would play. I miss that. Now it plays something else or just does nothing. I am sure iCloud works well for folks with a fast internet connection. but for the rest of us it has a way to go.

    Hmmm, I do that all the time (Find a tune, double click and it plays). Not sure what iCloud has to do with it.

    Try the usual double click routine again. This time wait a little longer before trying another song. I'm noticing a bit of a lag with the current version of iTunes that I didn't notice before.

    In my case it might be because I am accessing things over the network.

    Well, I see no lag. My songs and videos are stored on an internal SSD, so the interface and read speeds are pretty fast. I suspect any lag is coming from network latency.

    I wondered the same thing but the lag seems to be a bit worse than it was under Mavericks. I haven't spent a lot of time trying to work this out yet.

    Using a 2010 MacAir on a slow connection shared with other users and lots of big pictures to upload to cloud services. This is not my primary computer so most of what I try to play has to come off the cloud.

    I also do what you are doing. And experience also the same bugs like yours.

    Alice, and John, it's not a bug. It's just a competition for the limited bandwidth. Unless and until the bandwidth improves or competition eases, you're going to have slow play, interruptions and generally poor performance. Right now I am streaming music from the internet, watching a video stream as well and typing on this website. So it can be done, you just need big bandwidth.

    Update: i still have not spent time troubleshooting this but I have noticed the following behaviors recently.

    1. The lag I am having is probably not a bug specific to iTunes. I ran Pandora day before yesterday for the first time since switching to Yosemite. If I push the play/pause button there is about a 1 second lag before anything happens.
    2. The same problem occurs if I quit Safari with Pandora still open. There is almost a 1 second lag before the sound starts.
    3. A similar lag occurs if I adjust the volume using up/down keys on the keyboard. This problem crosses all programs or at least seems so to me,. I don't think the same problem occurs if I adjust the volume using a headset.
