    Playback/Previewing Problems


      The playback/preview button is not working on my Premiere Elements 7.  I have tried hitting the button, the space bar and the full screen preview, but to no avail.  What should I do?

          Welcome to the forum.


          Can you post a screen-cap of your Timeline showing the Clip(s) that you are attempting to play, with the CTI (Current Time Indicator w/ the red Edit Line) over the Clip and also the Program Monitor?


          Also, when you Dbl-click one of the Clips in the Project Panel, does it play in the Source Monitor?


          Knowing the details of the Clips would be useful too.


          Good luck,

            I can't preview in the Source Moniter when I double click on a clip either.  And I've made 5 separate projects with multiple clips in the past couple weeks and none of the clips have been able to preview, so clip info doesn't really matter.  I attched the printscreen of the workspace.\

              OK, you have Imported VOB, which mostly contain MPEG-2 AV files in the VOB container. Are all of your source files VOB's? Are these from a miniDVD camera? Which one, make/model? What is your Project Preset, and how did you Import the VOB's? Very likely something in there.


              This ARTICLE will give you a bit more background on VOB's, and what they can contain.


              Good luck, and thanks for the screen-cap, as it showed a lot.
