Timeline will not Play?

Earlier today the timeline stopped working for all the projects I have been working on. If I press the play button nothing will move and oftentimes it gets itself stuck and will not allow me to "stop" the playback.

After a restart and uninstalling and reinstalling the program it finally showed changes when I would manually skim the sequence, but it refused to do so before.

All of the contents of the projects can play fine outside of premiere.

Would anyone have any ideas as to how to fix this issue?

Hey there! I just had a similar issue and managed to fix it.

Problem: Hitting the play button or 'space' would not make the video play. I could scrub through the video manually with the mouse, but no sound would come out.

Solution: Go into Edit>Preferences>Audio Hardware

My device class was initially set to ASIO, because I'd been doing some live recording recently. I switched the device class to MME, and made sure the default output was to my speakers or headphones.

Hit OK, then I was able to hit 'space' or the play button to play the video normally, with normal sound. 😃

Good luck!

Daitoshi,

YOU ARE AWESOME!!  After hours of frustration, you helped me workaround a PP flaw.

 

It all started when I stopped using wired headphones and switched to a wireless bluetooth headset.  When PP launched, it mentioned something about the audio connection previously used was not available, or something to that effect.  It took me to the audio settings that offered only one option.  It didn't not take me to the setting you mentioned.  When I followed your path, sure enough, mine was set to ASIO.  When I changed it to MME, my video timeline started working again.

 

Who would ever expect an AUDIO SETTING would disable the VIDEO timeline?   This isn't the first time I've had an audio setting mess up something else unrelated to audio.  You'd think these things could be fixed by Adobe, because this bug is  EASILY REPRODUCEABLE.  This implies a level of quality disinterest by Adobe.  You know they know about this FLAW.

Found this thread as was having a similar issue but found a different fix. I have three timelines open: two play and one will not. I can scrub. I can load the clips and they play any way I want but just one timeline would not. I noticed that the looping icon was active and turned it off. It now plays. I turn the loop back on: won't play. The other two timelines play whether or not the looping mode is on. Very strange.

Hi! I'm having the saame issue, except I'm unable to find those audio settings under EDIT in photoshop. My photoshop is also not prompting me that there is an audio issue when I launch it.

How am I able to check my audio settings with photoshop CC 2020?
