I started having this weird issue where after working for 30 minutes or so Premier Pro won't play video (not in sequence, and not in source monitor).
I recently began working on a Windows PC at a client's shop (I'm strictly a Mac guy).
It worked fine for about 3 weeks, then the PC began to to do this weird thing: ........it will work for about 30 min then refuse to play any video in the source or the sequence. I press play and the icon changes from the "play" icon to the "stop" icon, but the video doesn't play.
Video will scrub in either window, however it won't scrub with sound .........and will not play.
If I quit Premier and relaunch it usually fixes it, but I have to do this every 30 minutes or so.
Sometimes a relaunch does not fix it, so I do a complete re-boot.
I tried creating a new project and it had the same problem.
Premier Pro 2017 (latest version)
I'm working off of an external 6TB hard drive (USB 3.0)
