    How to get Premiere Pro CS5 to playback video

    onemanmedia

      I have followed all the solutions about deleting the preference file...com.apple.audio...  Logged in as a root user but I still cannot get Premiere Pro to play any video with audio or no audio...or audio files...it will not play anything...the project has been working great on my iMac, but I cannot use it on my late 2009 Macbook Pro 17inch...with 4 gb of ram...what should I do?

      Thanks in advance for any help you may have.

            Sure thing...I am editing a project on my laptop..Premiere has been running great on my iMac...however, it will not play anything on my MacBook Pro...it will play about a second and then stop...then return to the playheads original position...it does this on every type of media.  I have searched and searched and tried everything suggestion I have come across..which involves in deleting the com.apple.audio preference, and logging in as the root user...however, nothing is working.  I have created a new project and still get the same outcome...I have a new MacBook Pro so it should not have a problem playing the media...especially a simple aif file.

              Just as an example, can you layout a typical Project/Sequence with the full data, and then an example Asset, again with full details?

               

              Not knowing Mac's, I would be helped with info such as processor/CPU speed and core-count, and also the I/O sub-system, i.e. number, size, speed, controller type and how allocated for your HDD's.

               

              Thanks for letting us know the steps that you have tried, as those can now be ruled out as possibilities.

               

              Good luck,
