Hello. I have had Adobe Premiere Elements 2020 for about a month and a half now, and everything has been great. Zero issues that werent user error. But this morning when I woke up to continue editing a YouTube video, I found that my playback speed was unusually fast. And not just for one clip, its like the video was playing in 2x speed. I havent tried exporting it yet, but I will after this is posted. Also, the music that I have playing in the background is very choppy and is also sped up, I've searched Google, Reddit, here, etc and I haven't found anything on how to fix this issue within Elements. I found one for Premiere Pro, but the layouts are so different I couldnt use that answer. Anything helps, thank you in advance.

To be more sure of my guess, would you please post screen shots of a text view of your footage from the (free) MediaInfo program.  And, a screen shot showing your project settings.   My guess is that you've set up a project with a frame rate different than the frame rate of your footage.   You could also try setting up a new project an let Premiere Elements pick the project settings.  Do that by not picking a setting and place a primary clip on the timeline before anything else.

If your guess is correct, then why would it have been working fine yesterday? I didn't touch any settings since then. I never messed with any settings, but Ill get you the screenshots. My internet is super slow so I cant get the mediainfo app atm, but I know for a fact I record at 60fps. CaptureSettings.PNGGeneralSettings.PNGVideoRenderSettings.PNG

I just launched the program again to get you those screenshots, and when I clicked play, the video progressed at the normal rate...I haven't done anything since this morning I have no clue why its doing this.If you could still please help me troubleshoot it so that if it happens again I can do it without help, that would be great.

"when I clicked play, the video progressed at the normal rate.."

 

There is little that can be done when it works right!   

 

There is a technique sometimes called "J-K-L" editing.  The shortcut J key shuttles left, the L, right and K stops it.  Repeated pressing of the J and L keys speed up the play.   Maybe, somehow the L key was stuck?

I've been using Photoshop since Photoshop 2! And began using Premiere Elements maybe a decade ago. When I bought a new desktop Dell a year ago, I bought P & P Elements 2020 along with it. Running Windows 10. 

 

Yesterday I recorded video with a Logi 920 webcam and a Zoom H2 for audio, and it was fine in playback. But when I went to edit it today in Premiere, it was out of sync. I looked up what to do, and used Handbrake. Looks fine when I click in File Explorer. When I opened Premiere, though, it's in sync all right, but going too fast.

 

Suggestions? I already rebooted the computer.

I've not seen this topic for a couple years!

 

Premiere Elements is optimized for common camera video.  Webcams, screen recorders and other non-camera devices can be a challenge.   

 

Knowing nothing about your workflow, my first guess is that there is a mismatch between your footage and project settings.  What are the project settings and how did you make them?  What are the video specifications?  Do they match?

Sorry, what is "common camera video"? If I understand right, this is a
common camera. It's not a laptop camera or a screen recorder. I'm working
on a Dell desktop, with a plug-in Logitech camera. If I understand what you
mean, it's not a non-camera device, it is a real camera.

I used Microsoft Camera to record it. I probably should have used the Logi
software.

Which settings do you mean? There are so many--but I didn't change
anything. It's the same as I've been using for a year. I just don't change
the settings, since till now it's worked.

Earlier today it was sort-of working, showing me the video at normal speed,
but audio and video were out of sync. So I read the Community pages and saw
that this was because I had used a separate sound recorder. It said to
re-encode it in HandBrake. I did, and it looked good when I clicked it.

Then I opened Premier. I didn't change any settings. But when I tried to
play it in Premier, it's at double speed. I didn't change any settings at
all.

Thank yuou for your help!
