Playback only works from the timelines, so I have to drop every clip there in order to play it. It's been an issue across several versions now and is driving me mental.
Any clip in the event selected will not play, JKL, spacebar, play button etc all play for about a frame and then stop. Video and audio skimming/scrubbing work fine, but it won't play the clip unless I drop it down to the timeline.
At least one other person has had the same issue. They came up with some kind of glitch workaround by resetting the window layout. I tried it and it worked for about a day but the issue came back and I can't get that workaround to work again.
