I recently started experiencing choppy playback in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2020. The video plays in fast forward and the sound is chopped up. Almost like I am scrubbing the video. I am running an Intel Core i9900K CPU @ 3.60GHz 32GB of RAM, Windows 10 Pro, GeForce RTX 2080 TI. I have a 2 TB SSD and a 6 TB HDD. I have tried moving my videos from one hard drive to another and re-imported them to see if it still plays choppy and that did not fix the issue. When I open the videos without Premiere they play fine. I have also tried importing older videos that have worked previously on Premiere Pro and those have the same issue. When I export the videos the videos play with no issues unless I import them back into Premiere. Please help. Thank you.

Thank you. I figured out where the problem was. I went into Preferences/Audio Hardware and changed my default Input to Microphone. That was what solved it. I don't even know how that changed on me. Thank you again for y our time. Have a great day.
After 2 days, file transfers, phone calls, disk clean-ups, (including a 6-hour defrag), un-installing, re-installing, going back to older versions, reading dozens of messages boards/watching support videos,and considering using a system restore point.......I came across this post and my 2-day old problem that almost made me quit editing altogether was fixed in 30 seconds......PRAISE YOU SIR!!!!!
Thankyou so much, fixed it for me too
What a strange thing to cause the choppyness. Thank you so much for your solution though! It helped a ton!
