Since updating to CC 2020, when I hit the "L" key to fast-forward while playing on the timeline, video starts lagging but audio keeps playing and Premiere hangs, and I get a ton of low-level exception occurred errors related to Adobe Player (Player:11). I have to Force Quit after that as the application is not responding anymore once that happens.
I was running Mac OSX Mojave with these errors, so I upgraded to Catalina to see if that would help but it doesn't.
This is with both AVCHD and Quicktime MOV's. The only way to resolve this so far is to use the Mercury Playback Engine Software Only renderer mode instead of Metal or OpenCL.
Anyone else having this bug?
Same issue for me with h.264 MOV files only from one camera, other h.264 MOV files apear to still be ok. I'm still on Mojave, 10.14.6. didn't want to upgrade to Catalina and have Premiere issues.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Premiere and Encoder, cleared the media cache but still no joy.
Using VLC's media information window the codec is "H.264 MPEG-4 AVC (part 10) acv1"
Playback of the file in VLC video is fine but audio is choppy/jittery. same file through quicktime plays back fine.
I'm running a 2018 Macbook Pro 15" 2.9GHz i7, 16GB and the Radeon Pro 560 4GB
What kind of footage are you working with?
4k, H.264 MPEG-4 AVC (part 10) acv1 MOV.
Files come from a JVC GY-HM180U
only these files have issues, every other file i have from Canon, Sony, Black Magic and DJI Drone cameras work just fine.
Looks like a bug. Can you please upvote here? https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/39076387-bug-premiere-pro-2...
Really sorry for this frustrating situation.
I have exactly this bug - Player:11, caused by using shuttle controls with CUDA enabled.A live chat technician tells me it's a known issue.
That's a screencast of it happening to me on Windows 10 - latest version. Latest Premiere. Latest GPU drivers.
Yes, I can turn off CUDA (no realtime!)
Yes I can use an earlier version of Premiere (no backwards compatibility, so can't open my projects)
Here's one of the other threads about this bug:
What kind of GPU are you running? Does it have 2+ GB VRAM for HD or 6+ GB VRAM for 4K?
It's the GTX 980m with 8GB RAM. And all my footage is 1080p.
This error hasn't happened in any previous version of Premiere, on this computer.
We're editing HD footage with an i7 iMac with the 8GB Radeon Pro 580 and 32GB of ram.
According to live chat technician, it'll be fixed in early Dec update:
"By the first week of December, we will launch a new patches will be coming on which will fix the issue."
Well, I think that Ashutosh probably should not have made that promise. Engineering has its own set of schedules, which are subject to change and often does so, even at the last minute. That said, I'm sure the team will do its absolute best to get the fix out ASAP.
I would say this instead, engineering knows about the issue and is working on a fix. It should be available in an upcoming release of Premiere Pro.

Unfortunately, the dev team simply can't promise when certain fixes or feature will be delivered. I'll speak with the agent about this.
Incredibly sorry about this, Sam. As I just remarked, engineering knows about this bug and is getting out a fix ASAP.
This still seems to be an issues as of Jan 2020. Anybody know of a workaround or update on the horizon?
Very interested aswell.
Nothing works but restarting the project and ignoring the "L" Key.
Any fix on this? It started happening to me about a week ago. I keep getting flash player exceptions. Need halp!
what version are you on? I no longer have this issue, I'm on 14.0.4.
oh good to know!
Just checked, i'm currently running on 14.0.1 - but working on a project so didnt update yet.
Maybe it's solved.
I beleive it is, at least for me. try updating when you can.
Just updated - seems not to work for me. If I play in 8times fast forward and get back to normal playback I got stuttering pictures (even ghosting random other scenes into it) and an audio async.
Figured out that leaving the window and starting playback with spacebar seems to be a workaround
Odd, although to me that sounds like your machine couldn't keep up with the data access requirements and now it's out of sync.
Bad News for a good equipped XPS15 i guess. But sounds like this.
Thanks for the update!
Yes, I have this same bug. I've had it for about six months. I thought updating to the latest Premiere (14.3) might fix it. But no, Adobe can't even get it together. You'd think with all those people paying all that money they could actually make software that works.
Change your sequence settings to match the footage's framerate exactly.
My footage was 50,96 and the sequence was 60. When I pressed L to fast forward there were hundreds of dropped frame errors.
To fix, I closed all my open timelines and created a new one by dragging the footage into the empty timeline panel. This made a new sequence that perfectly matched the footage framerate and my fast forward playback was more stable with no errors.
