    iTunes Updater - slowing box down

    the new 5.4 is a great version- kudos to those
    involved.

    When I installed the new iTunes updater it
    significantly slowed my machine down. It only slows
    it down when a song ends and the next one starts
    (writting to tunes I suspect).

    Maybe I messed up installing it. I put the iTunes.pm
    in the plugin folder along with the
    "iTunesUpdateSupport" folder. I left out the file
    that ends in .pl as I am not using the compile option.
    I took off he option that will start iTunes
    automatically also. I think I did everything correct
    but still getting the server freeze as I mentioned and
    about a 5 second stall in the music at the begining of
    each song.

    I dont use this plugin, but there should be a setting (likely in server
    settings, plugins) to do updates offline. You will need ActiveState perl if
    you are on windows, but you can then run an update ( some .pl file) manually to
    enter all yoru recorded updates to the itunes library. if you select not to run
    iTunes, then the plugin would not be able to update itunes on the fly, thus
    causing your delays.
