The buffer size in iTunes!

As you might know if you read my Tweets, my internet connection is not always as great as it should be and watching previews on iTunes doesn't really work well, because unlike YouTube when the buffers runs out, iTunes just closes the preview window and returns to the information page. I finally figured out how to fix this problem in the iTunes preferences. It is under "Advanced","Streaming Buffer Size". Switching it to "Large" really improved the way previews play on my internet connection, but if you have a super speedy connection, changing the buffer size to Small can actually make videos start playing faster.

Don't forget to update your bookmarks, download the new widget and check out the new website at Tips will soon only be posted on the new website.
