Might want in ingest the footage the proper way via the Media Browser and let it conform before doing anything.
16 gig of ram is not much for assume HD H.264 footage.
Also might want to consider proxies.
The 16 GB should be enough to play a 3 MB video lip. (My humble assumption as a Software Developer)
Premiere only used 3GB of RAM int total at that moment.
I've also tried it via Media Browser, but it didn't made any difference.
Weird problem. Sorry. Please show us a screenshot of your Audio Hardware preferences. This issue is sometimes related to that.
did you ever get this fixed? The answer by the adobe staff is ********. I am noticing that answer on just about any questions asked in these help forums. They hardly ever truly offer a reasonable fix. I am experiencing the exact issue. and I cannot figure it out. can you help me? [personal info deleted by mod]
Your answer is bogus. I am experiencing the exact problem after windows update. Your answer seems like a common go to move on these help forums.
