Hello Mike. I have been trying to get an answer on another post about this EXACT same issue. It seems nobody can help.
I have created a Screen Video of Premiere's Bars and Tone and inserted it below. Let me know if this is the same problem you are having. This is very frustrating that Adobe can not help if you call, and it seems no one on this forum has an answer. Some say it is not wide spread, but I know of at least 3 people on this forum having the same problem.
Here is the Screen Video, please let me know if you are having the same problem.
Hello Mike. I am almost ready to give up. Nobody has an answer. I have gone through every test Adobe has, nothing works. Adobe then says to call the number, LOL, like I did not know to do that. But, they have no answer there either.
So, I guess until this PROBLEM is fixed. You will have to stay with 5.0 and I will have to say with Final Cut. But this leads me to a question, why did we spend the money on CS5.5?
IF the forum search is working, search for a post by Adobe employee Todd (I think) concerning needing to logon to ROOT to setup permissions
I don't use a Mac, so never made note of the link
That's lame man!
I want to know how Premiere 5.0 works but not 5.5. Crazy!
You should have just waited for Final Cut X. LOL!

Mike it is fixed for me. The answer is on the other post. This is the message I left for Chad, an Adobe Employee.
I bow to you Sir Chad. This worked great. I do not know why I had to go through these hoops, and why nobody else knows about it. Perhaps it needs to be added to your permanent list of Fixes on the site. Specifically for Video Playback for Mac CS5.5 Premiere Pro Video Playback.
Once again, thank you my problem is solved.
Below is the answer to at least my problem.
Logging in as Root on my Mac, then opening Premiere. Opening a file, running the video, then logging out as Root. Logging in as my regular user name and it now works just fine.
Here is info from Chad
Here's the support document on this issue for the previous version of Premiere Pro:
Thanks guys! Bravo!
Dude, congrats. Now we can use the fastest rendering Video Editing software around.
A big thanks to David and CHAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
