Beast machine, slow DJI Inspire footage

Just upgraded my system, i7 5280K, 64 GB DDR4 RAM, Radeon HD7970, so on.

I can run everything I have in "Best" quality in the timeline, including 4K GH4 footage, R3Ds, 4k prores, and similar, however 4k footage off of my Inspire drone makes the program un-usably laggy immediately when you play it or scrub through.
On a friend's machine with lesser specs (an HP with an i5 and less ram and far less GPU) the Inspire drone footage plays smooth as silk in Vegas. What am I missing here on my machine? My previous setup with a 5 year old AMD processor did marginally better with the drone footage even.

All out of ideas here. No bottlenecks in sight when testing for them with software (GPU load is minimal, as is cpu, and ram, and everything else). Same result when the file lives on an SSD or 7200rpm SATA HDD.

Any help would be huge, thanks all. I know the solution isnt proxies because it is proven to play perfectly on friends machine.

Footage off your Inspire drone probably uses a codec that you dont have
installed on that system, but is installed on your friend's machine, that's
why it plays smoothly.... Unfortunately you did not provided any detailed info
on the format of the 4k footage from the Inspire drone.

I should add that the footage plays fine in VLC on my comp, not sure if that matters. Either way:
Here is the info for the drone footage:

Even if it plays smoothly in VLC, If the codec that it uses is not
installed on your system, Vegas cant read it.
VLC uses its built in architecture to play certain files even if the
codec is not installed.

I have a Phantom 3 pro and have no problem editing or playing back the 4K footage on my Toshiba P55t-B5262 Satellite 4K laptop. I had problems before the latest Vegas 13 build. My Laptop has the AMD R9 GPU, and it works very well with Vegas 13.
