All footage was filmed with DJI MAVIC AIR 2. I have the project all finished but even when i put the playback window to its lowest resolution it still lags and holds onto the first frame of the clip. When you pause video while it is froze and then unpause, it will jump to the new frame but still freeze on that or show like 3 frames from that clip. While it is like this, I have tried tons of different export methods to see what works but still choppy. Any help is definately appreciated.

I noticed it is software encoding and the resolution is odd. Is it an odd variation of H.264/265?

Your machine might not be powerfull enough to handle the footage.

Convert or use proxies.

I would not use One Drive but rather a dedicated A/V folder.

The screen shot states mp4 (h.264) 62.5 mbps (mgabits per second). An old mechanical hard drive can  play that back with ease. Pro Res, BRAW and R3D files can require 350 MBPS (megabyte per second). Is your hard drive getting pegged at 100%? Is you CPU getting pegged at 100%?  The video below might be helpful in order to help find the weakest link. Having said that it is good to clean out the media cache folder from time to time and delete any files you don't need. It is not wise to have your hard drive over 90% full.
