ITunes won't play when using Remote Desktop

I noticed that if I access my home computer from work remotely using Windows Remote Desktop, and that iTunes is opened on my Home PC, when I get home, I can't play music from iTunes.
I need to close iTunes and re-open it again...
any idea?

Sorted it.

  • Printing to a Printer Connected to TIme Machine when using Remote Desktop

    I am having trouble printing to a printer connected to our wireless network via Time Capsule when I am on my remote desktop connection. Printing from all other programs work. I downloaded Bonjour on our Windows based server, and it did not detect any printers. When I am connected directly to the printer, I can print when using remote desktop. Any suggestions are much appreciated.
    Mac OS X (10.5.4)

    Airport Extreme/Express do emulate Jetdirect/port 9100 printing, but that isn't what they use for printing from OS X. OS X and the Bonjour/airport software use USB port redirection, a unique and separate method.
    If the HP driver supports any protocol over ethernet, it would be appletalk. Does that router server use appletalk?

  • RMBP reaches 104C when using remote desktop.  Is this normal?

    I have a new rMBP that is reaching temps of 104C when using remote desktop or other moderately intensive applications.  Is this normal?

    No, that's way too hot. It's only a few degrees below automatic thermal shutdown.

  • Bug when using Remote Desktop

    I've found a bug that I have replicated on 3 different computers, all running Vista. Listen to a song in iTunes and pause it. Now, remote desktop to that computer from a new computer. After you're connected, simply disconnect and return to the original computer.
    Now, if you press Play, the button changes to the Pause symbol like usual, but it never actually plays. The timebar doesn't advance either.
    Is there a fix for this?

    You must turn off hardware acceleration in the Firefox 4 browser on the remote PC to allow remote desktop applications to refresh the screen properly. Obviously you will not be able to make this change remotely, as you will not be able to see the menus until after the change is made.
    1. FireFox > options > options> Advanced > Browsing > Uncheck "Use hardware acceleration when available"
    2. Restart Firefox 4

  • Report hangs when using Remote Desktop

    I am having trouble with Crystal Reports 11. I was wondering if there is a known issue when using it in conjuction with Remote Desktop.
    Here is the scenario.
    I am using Remote Desktop to connect to a server.
    I am running a report using Crystal Reports 11.
    The records have already been retrieved (approx. 800,000 records) and is printing - slowly.
    It takes around 75 minutes for the report to print 12 pages.
    If the Remote Desktop connection is closed, then re-established, the Crystal Reports pops up a message box stating "Not Supported". The pages of data the were previously printed are now blank. (For example: if it was on page 1 of 9+ it will go back to 1 of 1+ and the page will be blank.)
    If I use a VPN to connect to the network, then use the Remote Desktop Connection to connect to the server, the connection will periodically disconnect and the re-establish. This does not occur when not using Crystal Reports.
    Is there a problem with using Crystal Reports with Remote Desktop? Is there a better way to run my reports remotely?
    Thanks for any input.

    You may be better off posting this in the Crystal Reports Design forum as that team supports issues regarding working with the CR designer:

  • Flash media (youtube, video, etc) won't play when using Apple TV Airplay Display

    I have a new Apple Tv. I have connected it to my tv and am using the tv as a second display from my iMac. The display works just fine, but if I try and play any flash based media, say a Youtube video, on my iMac while Airplay is on, it won't play.
    Mind you, it isn't that I am not getting audio, it just won't play the video at all. I can even see the progress bar load fully, but it doesn't begin playing.
    The second I turn Airplay off, the video will play.
    This also happens with sites such as Soundcloud, and Tumblr audio posts.
    Any ideas?

    I connect to Airplay Display, I select apple tv, and either mirror display or extended desktop. Doesn't matter which, both have the problem.
    Then, on my imac I try to play a video and it does not work. I can even hit play on a video, let it go, and THEN turn on Airplay and it will stop playing as soon as I do.

  • Specific User receiving Application crash when using Remote Desktop Application

    I have a client running a server with their line of business software configured as a remote application. I have one user that when he attempts to run the line of business software as a remote application he receives a APPCRASH error.However if another user
    launches the remote application and then signs in as the problem user there is no APPCRASH.

    just trying to find some sort of hint as to way the remote application would crash for just one user. it is my luck that the one user is the owner.

    It looks like the issue was resolved by deleting the problem users profile off of the terminal server.  The user can now access the RD application without suffering an APPCRASH error.

  • Sound not working & iTunes won't play & Netflix error

    Sometimes my sound stops working, and songs on iTunes won't play when this happens. Also if I try to watch Netflix an error message comes up: "Netflix Playback Error N8157 3140" and it says it could have something to do with my Silverlight plugin.
    This is what it says:
    The error you're seeing is related to the Silverlight plugin, which Netflix uses to play movies and TV shows on your computer.
    This error is usually caused by one of two things:
    A computer setting preventing Silverlight from storing files it needs to play your movie or TV show
    An issue with the Silverlight plugin itself
    To fix this error, follow the steps below for your Windows or Mac computer.
    Reinstall your audio card drivers 
    Your audio card drivers may be out of date or corrupt.
    Uninstall and reinstall your audio card driver. Your owner's manual or audio card manufacturer's website can help.
    However, I have tried deleting and reinstalling silverlight, but it doesn't make a difference. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this? It only happens sometimes, other times I have no problems and it works fine.

    Back up all data before proceeding.
    Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it:
    ~/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Silverlight
    Right-click or control-click the line and select
              Services ▹ Reveal in Finder (or just Reveal)
    from the contextual menu.* A folder should open with an item selected. Quit the application if it's running. Move the selected item to the Trash. Relaunch the application and test.
    *If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination  command-C. In the Finder, select
              Go ▹ Go to Folder...
    from the menu bar and paste into the box that opens by pressing command-V. You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return.

  • TS3159 Some songs that I've bought on iTunes won't play on my iPhone 3GS even though they used to and they will still play on iTunes.  Anyone know what I can do to get these songs to play on my iPhone again?

    Some songs that I've bought on iTunes won't play on my iPhone 3GS even though they used to and they will still play on iTunes.  Anyone know what I can do to get these songs to play on my iPhone again?  Please help!

    No, I haven't figured it out.  And no one from Apple has contacted me to help.  Very frustrating.  Sure makes me want to not buy music on iTunes and just buy CD's.
    Do you have a 3GS too?  Maybe it's something with that phone??

    Windows XP right?
    Then you need to install this patch before installing ZCM agent: An application that installs a mirror driver over a Terminal Services session may stop responding on a Windows XP-based computer

  • My itunes music stops playing when my laptop screen closes down after about 5 min. im using windows7

    my itunes music stops playing when my laptop screen closes off after about 5minutes. im using windows7

    DriveReadySeekComplete errors are either:
    - IDE controler failure
    - Bad cables
    - Bad harddisk
    Out of these 3, the last one sounds the most reasonable with nowadays harddrives. And yes, your system will hang when all your important processes are hanging while trying to do disk I/O.
    What windows does is switching back to PIO mode and never report anything, until you hit the nice BSOD telling you to replace the floppydisk in drive C...

  • ITunes won't play music videos.

    iTunes won't play music videos.

    Hey guys, here's my problem.
    I had some major issues with OSX last week that a trip to the Apple Store couldn't fix. Their only advice was to save all my pictures, music, documents, etc. and reformat. I did that yesterday. I reinstalled everything and then downloaded all the most recent updates.
    Today, I can play all the music I own in iTunes (music imported from CDs, bought from other sites, and music bought from iTunes itself). However, it won't play any of the music videos I have (all bought off iTunes).
    I have authorized the computer again and again. When I try to open the videos in Quicktime it tells me that I don't have permission to play them and that I need to authorize the computer.
    I'm lost. Any help?

    Yup, this Audio but no Video WAS exactly the same trouble I was having, on my MacBook and iMac but not the other 2 MacBooks. This was due to the speaker settings at the bottom right hand corner of the iTunes window. I do use multiple speakers via Airtunes, on the two that were having trouble but not the other two, and although the speakers were only set to the computer it still wouldn't play the video content.
    Whilst the audio (of the music video) was playing I then went to reselect multiple speakers, which brought up the "*failure to connect to remote speakers network refused connection*" warning, then I unchecked the remote speakers to leave just the "Computer" and hey presto the video came to life.
    Thank you Charles C n Miami and hope this extra info helps.
    Happy Music Video Watching

  • Audio won't play when I'm skimming through clips on iMovie

    The audio of the clips I have on iMovie won't play when I'm skimming through them, but will play when I play the clips. I made sure the volume of every clip and on the computer works (it does) but this is getting really annoying. Can anyone please help me out?

    To Reboot your computer, select /Shutdown... from the top menu. Wait a few seconds, then turn your computer back on with the on switch.
    You don't really have to know what a swapfile is, but here is a simplified explanation.
    Your computer comes with a processor (Intel 2.8 ghz in my case), memory (2GB in my case), and a hard drive (500GB in my case).
    The processor is very fast. The memory holds the instructions and the data that the processor will work on next. Long term storage is kept on the hard drive, which is slower. Think of the following metaphor: You are sitting at a desk. You are the processor. Your desktop is the memory, which contains the stuff you are ready to act on. Stuff you have already acted on, or will not need until later, is in the drawers or in a file cabinet (the hard drive).
    Let's say you are working in several applications at once: iMovie, Microsoft Word, iTunes, Calendar, and Safari. Each of these programs needs some of your memory to function, and to get stuff to the processor for action. If you add all the memory requirements up, it may be more than the 2GB of "real" memory that you have. Fortunately, OSX lets you use virtual memory, so your programs can pretend they have as much memory as they need. Your programs can address memory as if they had a whole bunch of memory all to themselves.
    This is done through swapfiles. When there is more virtual memory than real memory, the programs and data that have been used least recently are swapped out to hard disk in a swapfile. This file is not the permanent storage. It is the temporary parking place for memory when the real memory is being used by another application.
    So lets say you want to use iMovie. It might take up 1GB out of your 2GB. There is not room, so OSX looks around and sees that you haven't used iTunes in a while. So the itunes instructions and music about to be played is swapped our to a swapfile on the harddisk.
    If you decide you want to listen to iTUnes, you will have to wait a few seconds as iTunes is swapped back in to real memory, and something else is swapped out.
    This is a simple case. It can get more complicated.
    But, as you run more and more programs, the real memory gets used up and there might be seven or eight swapfiles out on disk. At some point, OSX gets sluggish and has a hard time dealing with this. For example, if two large swapfiles needed to be paged in at the same time, there might not be room. Also, the real memory can get fragmented, and have open space, but the open space is not big enough to swap something in.
    I run a free utility called Memory Stick that shows me how many swapfiles I currently have. If I am working on something critical in iMovie, and I notice that I have a lot of swapfiles, I will usually just reboot and start over with 1 swapfile. In doing this, I hope to avoid the spinning beach ball that happens when OSX can't handle it any more.
    You don't really need to know this. OSX handles it for you. But understanding how it works can help you self-diagnose some problems from time to time.
