So I've been torrenting music for a couple years now, and maybe 2/3 of the music I download has this same issue. I find an album I want on Kickass Torrents or Pirate Bay and download it via BitTorrent. The files completely finish downloading, then I open them up in iTunes and start playing them. Some/all of the songs don't play all the way through, they skip to the next track at the same time every time. The weird part is, I know the full file is there (and not corrupted or only partially downloaded) because if I click to a part of the song that comes after the place it usually skips the song plays all the way through.

This has happened a lot. I check the comments on the torrent site, usually the reviews are all positive with little to no complaints, and definitely no references to what I'm experiencing.

I'm on a Macbook Pro running El Capitan (10.11.3) with iTunes (12.4.1.6) and BitTorrent (7.4.3).

Any and all help is much appreciated! Thank you!

I've been having the exact same problem. No clue what the problem is or how to fix it but I have found that if I make a copy of the file (in Finder; trying to copy it in itunes actually resulted in a shortened version of the song...), the copy version seems to play fine. Suffice it to say, it's a bit of a pain to go through and manually copy each file so I've actually been using file conversion software (I use XLD; it's free and pretty simple to do multiple albums in one go; I'm sure any other'd work fine too). Output format doesn't seem to matter, it really does just seem to be a question of creating a new file.

 

Again, this is less of a fix and more of a work-around but I hope it's useful; if anyone knows what the actual problem is/how to fix it, that'd be much appreciated!!
