    Timeline Playback Choppy - Which Part of my Hardware is the source of the problem?



      When I preview my videos using the preview frame in Premeire Pro CS5.5, I am experiencing choppy video playback. The preview starts out playing smoothly for approximately 3 seconds and then begins to go into choppy frames. Also, if it is relevant, I can play the videos perfectly fine on my computer without choppiness using any other player (i.e Windows Media Player).


      The source video was taken on a GoPro Hero 3 camera and its properties are listed below:

      Type: Movie
      Video: 59.94 fps, 1920 x 1080 (1.0)
      Audio: 48000 Hz - 32-bit Float - Stereo


      In order to make sure that I was not messing up the sequence settings, I begin all of my video projects by right clicking on the source video and selecting "New Sequence from Clip


      So: Onto my question: I REALLY need this problem fixed and I don't know how to do so. Could someone please tell me if this is a software or hardware issue, and if it is a hardware issue, which part do I need to replace in order to resolve? Thank you. My computer specs are listed below. Keep in mind that my computer knowledge is probably considered only slightly above average.
