I am using the latest Premiere Pro on a windows 10, very powerful machine and for no reason at all when I am playing through my timeline the playhead suddenly stops and I have to press space bar to get it moving again. It keeps doing this. I am only playing audio so its not a power or GPU/processing issue. It does it on video tracks too.
I have just moved over from Mac to Windows and although my MAC computer was shite, Premiere worked with little problems on it. I hope this is not a windows thing...?? Please help!
It's not a commonly reported issue on either platform.
If Bob's suggestion doesn't work, report back.
Thanks for the replies.
I don't even get an option to choose as my default input says "no input".
It is still stopping.
Any other advice?
Do any segments of your timeline have red bars over them? If so, select the Timeline Panel and hit the Enter key. That will render previews that should smooth out playback.
Do you need more help with this?
I'm having this same issue, I've spent hour searching for a solution. I Don't have the same audio inputs as in the youtube video sot that's no help at all. This only became a problem about 4 days ago and Its simply destroying my workflow. Using windows 10 duel nvido 970 cards i7 processor. Make no sense why it just started happening. Anyone have anything i can try. I'm really getting frustrated with it!
Chris: It might help to do a full-screen capture of your UI with the sequence in question in place right after playback stops. We might be able to see something that hints at a problem: the Program monitor zoom level, the playback resolution, etc. It's worth a shot.
Thanks for the reply, I have a screenshot attached of my ui right after the playback stops. Pressing the space bar will make it play again but it will stop after several frames. I noticed as well that if I set my second monitor as the Monitor out, it flickers on and off unless the video is actually playing. if the video is paused the monitor will keep flickering revealing the desktop background on and off.
This problem is normally caused by a faulty microphone or headphones.
Try a spare set of headphones or check a web am, occasionally cheap ones are not recognized very well and can cause problems.
I have the same issue, when i hit space bar, it plays 2 seconds and it automatically stops. But when i mute the audio, it plays continuesly. Send help please.
I've been having this same issue for the past few months. It is driving me crazy. Someone send help.
Changing audio input/output devices doesn't resolve the issues btw.
THE SOLUTION IS: DON T PUT YOUR HEADPHONES VOLUME TO MAXIMUM
THE SOLUTION IS: DONT PUT YOUR VOLUME ON YOUR WIRES OF THE HEADPHONES AT MAXIMUM
I have been having this same trouble for several months--somewhat intermittently. Argh
the solution is: don t put the maximum level volume on your headphones
I found this solution to work https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etlV5mQgRNs
this didn't work for me but deleting all my preferences did.
Today I solved this issue by just de-attaching a few devices from my CPU USB port.
How I found this?
I opened Device Manager and watched the device in that time I noticed that my Device Manager screen is flashing like a device is connecting or disconnecting from my system.
When I noticed this I removed all the devices, even the webcam and printer and my problem is solved.
So it occurs just because of devices.
