Choppy playback on my Mac

I am probably an Advanced Beginner when it comes to Premiere Pro.  Suddenly for some time now I've been having issues with choppiness when I try to play back my videos on my Mac.  It's never been a problem before.  Here are the high-level specs:

I am working with a fairly large video file (about 90 minutes; about 100GB); when I play it back, it skips and jumps and freezes.  it's totally unwatchable this way. 

 

I checked my input source, and it was set to No Input as it should be.  I have visited other online articles looking for solutions, and tried several things, and none of them have helped.  

 

Help...?

 

thank you!

Some things to check if you haven't:

  • Format and codec of your video files
  • If your video is variable frame rate
  • Hardware or software rendering of effects
  • Drive fragmentation/file fragementation
  • Other apps doing stuff in the background
  • Whether .pek files have finished generating for the audio portion of the clips

 

All of that would be good information to know and share.
