Anyone Use ITunes Here????
« on: June 23, 2009, 06:23:06 PM »
I'm trying to setup an account at ITunes and had serious problems trying to get an APPLE ID.
I finally got it setup so I have an ID and PASSWORD but now I'm having problems setting
it up so that my payments go through PayPal.
It goes through the whole process fine but when its all done it says its timed out and
to log in again.
That doesn't work and when I bring up the Itunes program again it still wants a
payment option. I'm not about to put a credit card number on the page when all I
see is an icon that says its secure.
Anyone else have a problem????
I'm just trying to find a SAFE place to buy music videos. I don't have an IPOD or
IPHONE. I just want videos to view on my computer (which isn't an APPLE).
I connected support for ITUNES but they only told me to do the same thing that
I have tried over and over.

I have Itunes on a direct credit card bill ( not through paypal ).  That works fine.  I find in general that the Itunes software/website is horrible.  Very slooooow.  Hard to move around, not intuitive at all.  I bought my Ipod Touch only 4 weeks ago and had a minor problem.  I called Apple and they were great on the phone and did solve my problem.  It is possible your problem is with Paypal - did you call them ?

Thanks for the reply!!!!
I'm not going to use ITUNES if I can't use PayPal.
I just got another email for their support department and told them that.
I don't know how you setup your payment plan with a credit card. I see that
option when I go through the process at ITUNES but I have no proof that
the info I'm sending is secure. All I see is a logo that says that

I can't imagine  Apple Itunes site is not secure.  There are millions of users.
What I do is use one ( the same one ) credit card for ALL my internet purchases.  That way if I ever ( and in 0ver 10 years  I have never had a problem )  have a problem it is only one card to cancel.

That's what I'm doing but this keeps happening:
To display this page, Firefox must send information that will repeat any action (such as a search or order confirmation) that was performed earlier.
Your session has timed out, please log in again.
Seems like double post is happening on the web browser, please try it again.

I emailed PayPal about this problem.
ITUNES is blaming my browser (Firefox) and PayPal for the problem.
They want me to try another browser but I only use Firefox now
because of all the security problems in the past with other browsers.
I would do a PayPal secure card but you don't have the option when
the ITUNES program comes up.

I finally went to PayPal and generated a multi-use secure card to use at ITUNES.
I downloaded my first video. Its worth it to pay for a video that looks great when blown up to fullscreen and I can even play it using my BS Player!!!!

I'm rather upset with ITUNES.
The first video I purchased played fine with the Free version of BS Player
but when I bought 2 more videos they wouldn't play.
I had to use the Quicktime Player and it takes awhile before it plays.
Does it make sense why the first video would play and not other ones????

My guess is that the second and third videos you bought have DRM embedded in them which means you are going to be limited in what players will be able to play them.

I think software exists that will allow you to make copies of your videos and allow you to strip off the DRM, but I have no direct experience doing that as I try to stay away from DRM-infested content.

Thanks for the reply.
I'm already tried a bunch of programs that's suppose to do this but none worked.
