Does the first clip you add to your timeline have a yellow-orange "render" line above it? That would indicate that the program has NOT properly set up the project settings to match your video (common with MOV files), and that is resulting in inefficient playback.
Look under the program's Edit menu and select Project Settings. What settings are listed on the General page?
I actually do not even have a orange or green line. I have tried multiple project settings Including everything in the AVCHD and DSLR folders. When I hit render the file just plays with no indicative colored line. I can confirm the file is 1080p at 59.94 fps.
Something odd is going on -- but based on what you've told me, I have no idea what it is.
You've certainly got more than enough power to play this video and your settings are all right. Playback should be a breeze. I have a similar processor and I can even play 4K without so much as a hiccup.
There must be something in your computer's configuration that's interfering with the playback.
Hard drive: How many, what kind, how full, and what is on each (if more than one)?
Thanks for the replies. Here are some more details with screenshots:
File I am using:
When I drag the file to the timeline there is no orange/green bar indicating the render issue:
As soon as I hit the Render button, the file immediately starts playing choppy in the timeline preview:
Project Settings I have tried include AVCHD 1080p60, DSLR 1080p30, HD 1080i30 among other settings all which have no resolved the problem.
I have two harddrives on this PC.
1. Seagate Desktop HDD ST2000DM001 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" (Windows 10 installed on this 1.42 TB Free)
2. Samsung SSD PM830 256GB (Adobe Premiere Elements and my videos are on this drive 224GB Free)
Thank you again for your help.
Are you saying that the Premiere Elements PROGRAM is installed on your second hard drive (the Samsung SSD)?
Because that certainly is not going to work. Premiere Elements must be on your C drive.
I've reinstalled the Adobe Premiere Elements program to my C: drive and have tried using the video file from both the SSD drive and C: drive and still have the issue.
Something is definitely wrong somewhere -- but based on what you've told me, I don't know what it is.
Anyone have any suggestions on how this can be fixed? I was really hoping to use my PC for editing
Can you please check the following options settings in Premiere Elements -
1. Right click on video(monitor panel) and check the playback settings in Premiere elements - It should be Automatic
2. verify playback after deselecting "use Hardware acceleration" option in Edit - Preferences - General menu
I have tried what you recommended and still have the same issue. I have even installed the trial version of Adobe Premiere Pro CC and it also has this problem.
I have tried several other video editing software such as Vegas Pro 14, Davinci Resolve and Cyberlink PowerDirector, all of which do not give me this choppy timeline problem. I am assuming there is something in the Adobe software line that is not in agreement with my PC.

Voici la solution trouvée par un autre utilisateur. (EN) I have looked at all the things you look, but the problem is in the audio part for me. I go to : Edit/ Preferences/ Audio hardware / Default Input AND i SELECT "No Input" (Before it was my webcam audio). It seems a synchro problem between the source audio and i do not know what. Hope this will help you,

Thank you. This actually fixed the issue for me and I've been looking for a solution for months. I went into Edit > Preferences > Audio Hardware and then changed Default Input to "No Input." It was set to the input of my sound card, which currently has no device plugged in to it. Not sure why that would cause it, but as soon as I changed this I was able to preview the video file with no stutter in the playback.
Thank you for the post. Your suggestion solved the same issue for me.
