You may be an online media machine, with a library of music and video that far exceeds any of your friends. But are you getting the most out of iTunes? Take our quiz and see if you're as optimized as you think you are!
This one's a little tricky. Although none of the three file formats work with iTunes, the program's newer versions can convert WMA files into compatible, playable files.
When looking for videos to play on iTunes, you're wise to avoid Real or MOV files, unless you enjoy the frustration and extra time required to convert files or find alternatives.
If your mobile device has the storage capacity, the fastest way to move files between it and iTunes is through the program's autosync function.
Equalizer, or EQ, sliders allow you to fine-tune individual sound frequency ranges, bringing out highs or lows to get the most out of both your music and your speakers.
While it is indeed nice to have beautiful art that accompanies your music, and it's always fun to impress friends, album art tagging in iTunes can make it easier and faster to find the song you want to play.
Media files that are not protected by copyright can be shared at no cost. Sharing copyrighted files without paying for them, however, is considered stealing from artists and is illegal.
This is a more nuanced question than that of sharing files. Although the files themselves are protected by copyright, the user-generated playlists are not. You can freely share information about what songs your friends like.
Sometimes artists release free tracks on their Web sites or online music forums that are perfectly legal to download. Keep an eye on your favorite musicians' sites for freebies!
The easiest performance enhancement you can make to iTunes is to install updates as they're released. This ensures your version of iTunes is the most current, with the most recent fixes integrated into it.
Some applications that you can install on iTunes, like iRemote and Sizzling Keys, allow you to designate key combinations -- hotkeys -- that can trigger specific commands, such as pausing a song or changing tracks.
