Apps / Software :: How To Download Itunes Free Video / Audio Without ITunes
Aug 19, 2014
I have an online course where the audio/video files are in itune store, but everytime I click on the link, it said itmss protocol is not registered in Windows, so the only solution seems to download/install iTunes for Windows. I'm trying to use VLC for all my audio/video files, so if I can avoid installing iTunes and still be able to download and watch the course video/audio, would be ideal.
Here are my questions:
- how can I visit itune store and check which free video/audio files are available to download. The ideal would be just click on the link, but everytime I tried that, the FF responded that does not know how to handle it.
- what's the format used by apple for audio/video files in itune store?
- supposed that I could download the video/audio files from itune store, is it possible to play with VLC?
- Windows 8.1 pro
- VLC 2.1.3
- 6GB RAM
- intel i3 CPU
I just purchased a new laptop 3 days ago with windows 8 and I am trying to export my movies onto itunes but they won't import. Previously on my older laptop I was running windows vista and the movie files played on itunes. They were mp4 files. I went onto the set defaults for programs and tried un-checking the mp4 box on the program "Video" which I think may be the reason I can't export them onto itunes but the box won't un-check.
Ever since I tried installing iTunes on my Lenovo y410p (Windows 8 x64), it will crash after it starts up. I've tried completely un-installing and re-installing, but to no avail. I've noticed that it only crashes when I'm connecting to the internet
I have windows 8 pro. Trying to install Itunes 11.01 64bit for Windows 8. Keep getting message "This app can't run on your computer".
Did a Google search on this problem and tried running as an Administrator, and changing compatibility to windows 7, but still get the same message. A suggestion online was made to save file before u download, but no prompt comes up to save.
I've found that on my Windows 8 64-bit PC whenever I try to install a new version of iTunes it always gives me an error. The only way to upgrade to the latest version is to uninstall iTunes completely, reboot, then install the new version of iTunes. Could it be because I'm running the 64-bit version of Windows? It's kind of annoying completely uninstalling iTunes just to upgrade to the new version but it's not a huge issue.
I recently updated to a HP laptop with windows 8 and downloaded iTunes and transferred my music over which I can open and play, however when I try to go the iTunes store I get "iTunes has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." I never get any notification and I can't work out the problem, I have uninstalled and re-installed and still have the same issue.
I tried downloading various apps from the store, but the message I get was I can't install this app.For example, I tried to install PDF Reader 8, and I get error code 0x80070032. Does the error code reveal what the problem is? I am running Windows 8, not Windows 8.1, on the Lenovo IdeaPad.
Is it possible to download free apps from Windows Store directly (without going through "Windows Store" icon/apps in Windows 8.1? I'm having a problem with Windows Store in my OS, whenever I try it, it just said no network connection, but I can surf no problem using FF/Skype etc. If I can go directly to Windows Store website and download the apps directly from there, it'll be awesome, but everytime I tried, it just goes back to my OS Windows Store.
How to authorize my itunes from my mac in the other room to come through the firewall. If I turn the firewall off it works, but I tried adding two new ports and that didn't work. The diagnostic program is useless.
My Iphone does show up in device manager, as Apple Mobile Device USB Driver. however it doesnt show up in Computer. This is really an issue because my memory is full and i need to transfer my photos to my PC. What do i do?
I recently got the new windows 8 phone and when I plugged it into my computer after creating an Xbox Music account it automatically imported a handful of songs that are in my iTunes library... I literally did not do anything. I want to get all of my music onto Xbox music so that I do not have t bother with iTunes anymore.
I purchased a GMYLE Windows media remote to control dvd software on my computer which works fine but the remotes nav, play and pause buttons etc also at the same time controls iTunes, is there a way to stop the remote controlling iTunes?
Just some info, obviously it does not happen when iTunes is closed but I like to keep it running all the time to download podcasts in the background and don't really want to keep closing it when I want to watch a dvd.
Also I went into iTunes/preferences/devices and ticked the box "only allow paired or home sharing remotes to control itunes" but every time I open iTunes preferences again the box is un-ticked.
I've had my modem connected straight to my computer via ethernet cable and never really had any problems. I recently downloaded itunes to listen music on my ipod and i know this probably isn't the problem but weeks later i was prompted to download an update for itunes and of course I clicked restart after update but start up computer and internet did not work. It was this "Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP configuration."
I've tried resetting the modem and nothing. It is worth noting that I reformatted to see if it would fix it but nothing. but once i connect my modem directly to my laptop it works perfectly fine. I also including attachments so i could possibly be better assisted. Also worth noting my motherboard is a Asus crosshair formula IV which unfortunately doesn't have updated windows 8 drivers but never gave me problems before. the ipconfig with black background is the laptop ipconfig.
I have a dell venue pro. I rented a movie on the pre-installed video app (xbox). I opted to download the movie so I can watch it remotely. I got a download error because of low disc space. The c drive is low on memory but I have a completely empty microsd card with more then enough room for the movie. How can I make the app download onto the msd card instead of the main drive? The app itself has no such option in the settings. I've tried to change the pathway but the app still seems to want to download the the c drive first.
For sometime now, can't say exactly when it started, all Flash videos have a strange startup delay. Videos buffer fast, no complaints, audio starts immediately but the video hangs there up to 7 - 8 seconds showing the first frame and then after this delay, jumps forward to catch the audio and finally plays normally.
I have difficulties to describe this, lets try with other words: I start for example a YouTube video. Audio of the video starts immediately, totally normally, but for the first 7 or 8 seconds the video only shows a still image of the first frame, totally frozen, then jumps to same time spot where audio currently is going and from that point I can watch videos normally. I lose nothing of the audio but visually I am not able to see those first seconds of the video.
When finally both audio and video streams are normal and running, if I switch to / from full screen, the same happens again although the video is frozen only 2 to 4 seconds (audio runs normally), delay being not as long as when video is started.
I have latest Flash installed, the laptop in question is the one told in my system specs. The issue is only when streaming Flash videos; disabling Flash for instance in IE11 and using HTML5 player instead, all videos (even YouTube) work as they should, both audio and video starting immediately.
When I watch YouTube videos I get random stutters where the sound skips. The image doesn't seem to freeze though, just the sound
I also get issues with the sound streaming music online, where it pauses for a second and stutters even though it's not buffering.
When this happens, NT Kernel & System shoots up in task manager and uses more CPU than the browser. This by the way happens in every browser, IE, Chrome or Firefox.
It doesn't happen when playing music in iTunes or watching videos from my hard drive.
That being said I'm not posting about a buffering type stutter, I am aware of that and this is not it. This is like basically suddenly the computer has a big spike in memory or cpu usage and the video/sound clip stutters for a sec. But it happens often enough to be very annoying. In a 15 min YouTube clip it happened 10 times.
I have reinstalled my IDT High Definition Codec and my Intel HD Graphics 4000 driver, but still the problem persists.
I've had this laptop over a year now, and just recently I've noticed when I leave it on a while and come back, either the audio of the entire laptop will die, or online videos just won't play. After restarting it goes back to normal until a few hours later when it happens again. I'm not sure what to do here.
I installed Windows 8 Pro on a GPT partition. I have 234GB of SSD with 87% free space according to Disk Management. I am trying to create a 4GB primary partition for Intel Rapid Start but the Disk Part shows i have no space available in that drive and would not let me create the partition. Why would that be?
I downloaded months ago Onenote 2013 free onto my Win 8.1 laptop.
I wanted to use Onenote like I did when I had 'Evernote' installed such as being able to send information to Onenote by right clicking and easily sending it that way, but it never worked as easily as 'Evernote'.
I'm sidetracking: I clicked on 'Onenote' and it said it was 'corrupted and unreadable'.
As I don't use the installed 'Onenote' on my laptop I decided to uninstall it using 'Advanced uninstaller pro 11'.
'Advanced uninstaller pro 11' looked for leftover files in the registry and it found over 400!
That is the most that has ever been found for any program I have uninstalled before and am worried about deleting these registry which have been found.
I don't want to leave all these registry behind but I don't know if all of them are safe to remove.
Does Microsoft have a 'Onenote 2013 free' uninstall tool?
I have a startup video I like and have it set up to start fine in win 7 with task scheduler. In win 8 I follow the same procedure to create a basic task and it does not work. very simply :
1. create basic task
2.name it - I name it
3. trigger - I choose daily
4. daily- I choose the time
5. Action- start a program
6. start a program-now this works in win 7 fine-I browse to the video I want to play and select it. the video is set up to open with jetaudio and when I manually go to the the video and double click it the video opens fine and plays with jet audio.
7. finish-click finish
now I think I am done so I test it with 'run' and first win 8 asks how do I want to open it...jet audio, adobe, internet explorer, etc...I know I have this file type and as a matter of fact all video file defaulted to jet audio. so why it is asking this in win 8 is beyond me. it does not do this in win 7. so anyway I click jetaudio-now jetaudio starts but does not play the video. its crazy because when I go directly to the video file in 'my videos' double click it and jetaudio opens and plays the video file.
Got my new WIN 8 pc set up (see below). webcam videos (AVI) play fine. Digital camera videos (MOV) play fine. The issue is with MPG videos. They have sound but no picture. These are videos originally on VHS, burned to DVD and then copied to hard drive. They play fine on WIN 7, but not WIN 8. When I open them with WMP, I have sound, but no picture. When I open them with VIDEO, I get the error: "That item was encoded in a format that is not supported by your version of Windows." Do I need third-party software to view these correctly? __________________ HP PAVILION SLIMLINE 400 WINDOWS 8 4 GB RAM 64 BIT 1TB HDD
