    Video Clips won't play

    novaboy5 Level 1

      Although Premiere 9 with all updates installed, worked fine a few weeks ago now none of the video clips will play.

      I imported a bunch of new clips without a problem but they won't play.  My computer is new with lots of memory.  The files are mpeg and the cam corder is a Panasonic HDC-TM60.  I thought perhaps it was these new clips, but my old projects load without a problem but they won't play either.  I just see the thumbnail.  There is no sound.  If I scroll, the clip moves so it is the clip and not just a still as I thought might be the problem.  Any ideas?

          I seem to have solved this problem.  Premiere does not seem to like the MOTU audio interface I use for my song recording/composing.

          When I switched the sound playback to the internal onboard sound card I once again had sound and video.  Not sure why but I've got it working.

            Glad that you have found the cause of the issue.


            Playback can be affected by either the Audio or the Video, and their respective settings.


            I do not know if it will let you use the MOTU interface, but many folk have had good luck with the installation of ASIO4All.


            Good luck,
