Hi, I've had this problem for the last two days with Adobe CC (fully up to date). When I play my timeline faster than normal speed (hitting "L") I often cannot stop it until it reaches the end of the timeline. The only way I found to get out of this is by putting my computer to sleep and restarting it.This aparently only seems to happen when I'm playing an embedded multicam sequence that I am editing. A simple clip on a timeline seems to play, accelerate and stop correctly.
Video files used : 1920X1080 .MOV files from a CANON 60D DSLR camera.
My system is a HP Z820 Workstation with 16 Gig RAM, a Firepro V7900 graphic card and a Windows 7 Professional (SP1) 64-bit operating system.
Anyone has ever had that problem? Thank you for your help.
It is crazy.. The amount of bugs in this program are insane. New ones come on top of there with every update and old ones persist. Still have this problem where it wont stop playing in multicam. Crashes on importing files on hitting the "save as" button, on fast forward with multicam, it renders black frames where there should be video and so much more. I use this proffesionally, pay for it and am now about to go to davinci resolve. With sadness I have to add because I always loved premiere but the bugs really make it unusable lately. I literally have to calculate extra time to account for all the crashes I encounter. Its crazy that such an expensive product has such bad support and bugs linger on for years without getting fixed. I think its time to go to the competition soon..

Fix for me using the latest version (14.1) is to save the current project then create a new project, import the old one into the new one and wallah! You HAVE to edit in Proxies though no matter how beefy yourt system is. So therefore no point in spending lots of cash on decent components when using Premiere
Aug 18 2020 - more than 6 years since this was first reported, and also here
and there's literally been no progress whatsoever on this serious bug.
No repro case? Seriously just throw a bunch of cineform clips into a simple MC sequence, hit play/pause a few times and watch it ignore all further input for however long it fancies. Copy everything to new sequence in a new project, sure. It'll work for an hour before resuming the same song and dance.
W10 Pro, i9-9900, RTX2080, triple screens.
Don't give me the "work on a single display" garbage when you dare to charge "professional" subscription fees.
No shame at all, Adobe. Just pushing more users away to alternatives or straight up piracy.
For the millionth time: bloody fix it!
August 31 2020 - It's driving me nuts too, especially under deadlines.
It blows me away that this is a 7 year old problem.
2tb Nvme scratch disk
separate Nvme for OS
separate Nvme for project files
4x4k MC, same error, almost unable to edit. PH stops after 10 15 sec.. considering this is a 3h clip, I will probably never finish 😞

This post has not gone on too long with no new information and is going around with few new solutions. Some have suggested that resetting the multicamera workspace helps, others have said that Preferences for Timeline playback (Scrolling, etc.) have helped. For sure, try these things.
Dual monitors seem to be OK, just avoid things like overlapping panels and displaying the Timeline panel across more than one monitor. I like to place my Timeline and Program Monitor on the most performant monitors. Bins, etc. can live on the less performant monitors. NLEs I have set up work better this way, so try these things.
On this huge thread, there are lots of gaps around the media people are using for multicamera edits. Spoiler alert: it's usually non-performant H.264, which is a terrible codec to edit multiple streams with.
In the meantime, I would recommend that your machine is capable of playback for the number of streams your computer is rated for and that it exceeds minimum system requirements. You need a more powerful than normal computer for smoother multicamera editing.
Furthermore, I would advise that you not attempt to use multiple streams of H.264 or H.265 video for multicamera editing, especially those that are 4K or larger and/or if it is of various frame sizes or frame rates. My advice is to transcode to an editing codec at the native frame size or create proxies for multicamera editing. Conform and optimize the footage as much as possible before beginning your edit. Your editing experience would be smoother with optimized media and multicamera editing sessions, for sure.
Finally, make sure that your optimized media lies on a separate high speed drive, ideally internally connected. SSD and M.2 drives are suitable for multicamera editing. That will help a lot.
If none of these tips help, again, create a new post or file a bug here: Premiere Pro User Voice
