- In this movie I'd like to show you a selection…of preferences and options that affect…how songs are played back in iTunes.…Let's start by going to iTunes Preferences…or in Windows, Edit Preferences…and in here I'm going to go to the Playback settings.…We're going to look at the three check boxes here.…Turning on any of these options…affects every song you play on iTunes.…Now first of all we have the Crossfade Songs option.…Now I have to warn you that as of this recording…this feature is not actually working…in this version of iTunes but let me…explain how it's supposed to work.…Basically Crossfade has to do with…determining how soon the next song will start…when the currently playing song is about to end…and by checking Crossfade you're setting up iTunes…so that the beginning and end of songs overlap…with each other much like they do on radio stations.…
This slider here determines how many…seconds of overlap will occur.…The more you drag to the right…the more the two songs will overlap.…So that's how it's supposed to work in theory,…
