Syncing my playlists is painfully slow and keeps stopping. I've tried deleting and re downloading the app onto my iphone5. I've tried syncing just served tracks and syncing each play list one at a time but still no luck! Please help as I'm about to pull my hair out.
Well, yes I can... up until a day or two ago, synching was mostly very fast, a few seconds to sync an album's worth of tracks. Now it takes longer to sync a single track than it takes to play, so that playback catches up and then stops.
I'm in the habit of synching all music played (which is then 'un-synched' once played) as real-time streaming doesn't work very well for me. The music pauses at frequent intrervals. My broadband speed varies slightly between 7 - 8 Mbps, rarely less.
Ah I was confused since this is the iOS section my bad!
First thing to try is go to Edit > Preferences > Playback > Untick "Enable Hardware Acceleration" and then restart the client and see if that makes any difference. Hardware acceleration is known to cause issues on Windows XP.
If that doesn't help, it might be worth a clean reinstallation just to rule out the client being a pain, but you will sadly need to resync all of your offline stored content.
On another note, do you notice it getting worse at any particular time of day?
Hi Peter, having now reinstalled and made the preference change, I can report that there's been an improvement... playback should stay ahead of synching now at least! Still not as good as it was though, hopefully it's only a temporary problem. Thanks for your help.
