Good evening all,
My setup is: Dell xps13 9350, using iTunes 188.8.131.52 (latest version Mar 2018) running Windows 10 version 1709 build 16299, with latest Realtek Hd audio driver 184.108.40.20633 x64 installed, playing audio tracks through my Samsung sound bar HW-J450 using bluetooth.
The audio playback using iTunes is awful with tracks jumping and skipping - so I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling everything but to no avail. I have eliminated the soundbar as the cause of the problem because I can use my mobile phone and tablet to play music tracks with no problem using bluetooth. My thinking is that the problem is either iTunes or an audio driver.
Is anyone else experiencing this problem and if so is there a fix?
Many thanks, Expeeses.
If playback is faulty when using headphones or built-in speakers it might be audio card issue (drivers, windows or hardware problem). If problem occur only when played through bluetooth - try to update Intel drivers (or Qualcomm - not sure which Bluetooth chipset you got inside; use drivers from vendor site not one Dell provides)
Check this article, maybe it will point you to some fix:
I'm having the same problem with my Dell XPS 13 9360. There are no external speakers involved, and the sound is choppy and stuttering whether I am playing .mp3 or .m4a files, whether iTunes, Groove Music, or YouTube via a browser. Have tried reinstalling drivers, have deleted the RealTec device from Device Manager, nothing has fixed it.
Occasionally something will play as it should, but it's pretty rare, and I can't figure out the conditions when it works.
Was this resolved?
You explained my problem perfectly. XPS15.
Youtube in chrome, windows media player, Adobe Audition, Guitarpro7. All randomly stutter or time stretch, it ruins all of my recordings. A lot of these threads never come back to say what finally worked as a fix.
Unlike the original postsr, im just using the internal sound device and speaker.
I dont know enough about win10 to figure out whats happening.
Thanks if you see this reply!
i found this in the faq, i will review later
