Chapter 14. Working with Music and DVDs > Setting iTunes Preferences

Setting iTunes Preferences

Like any application, iTunes gives you a Preferences panel that helps you adjust the software to fit your specific needs. For example, Advanced preferences give you the option to adjust the Streaming Buffer Size to the bandwidth of your computer. If you're running at 56kbps or slower, you may want to change the buffer to Small; conversely, if you're sprinting along at DSL or cable-modem speeds, you'd select Medium or even Large. The iTunes preferences give you precise control over how the program operates on your computer.

To set your preferences, or to review the defaults that have been set in iTunes, simply open the Applications folder, and then double-click the iTunes application. Click the iTunes menu, and then click Preferences. There you'll find almost every conceivable setting that is used in iTunes. For a summary view, we've shown you each screen and what is contained on that Preference screen. After making any changes to the screens, simply click OK to change the setting or click Cancel to undo your change.
