    So... I have had NO problem with editing and playback 4k videos. I have 24gig Ram. 6 core processor, etc. all of a sudden, ALL of my videos are playing back choppy like crazy! I have not installed any new software or anything like that. In fact, I pretty much ONLY use that computer for editing and processing videos.

    I did a restore to several days ago when it last ran perfectly. No change.

    Any of you computer guys have any ideas what I should be looking for to fix it? I did run a full system virus scan and made sure my video driver is current.

    Maybe you have a slow drive? My video is fine on my SSD but choppy when reading from my card or HD. I'm running an i3 3.2 with only 8GB RAM.

    I have never experienced a problem before. I have tried running from two different drives and from sd cards. I can't figure out what changed. Uggh! I am going to do a clean Windows and all drivers install and see if I can get back to how it was performing.

    Try the VLC video player. That cured my choppy playback issues.

    check temps with HWMonitor to see if its overheating.

    Thanks guys. I am using VLC. Same issue in VLC, Quicktime, and WMP. Issues ONLY happen with 4096X2160 @ 24fps videos. All lesser resolutions run fine.

    I don't think anything is running hot but I am not a computer guy. Do these temps look high?

    try lowering the refresh rate of your monitor.

    I appreciate the input but nothing seems to work. So... I am formatting the drive and reinstalling the operating system to get back to when it worked perfectly. Which was always until a few days ago. I am so frustrated that I could not figure out what changed to make the 4K vids go to crappy playback.

    Uggh. So... I have a done a clean Windows install in an attempt to get back to when my 4K vids were perfect. I bought this gaming computer to use ONLY for my vids. Still shi77y in 4k. I got paranoid that maybe my P3P was messed up and the vid files were fu66ed up. So, I looked back at some from months ago. They play crappy. I copied the vids to a USB and played them in a different computer with a wimpy vid card and half the RAM. Play fine there but not on my "big video editing machine".

    I think my video card may actually have developed a fault. That or the mother board. This is a hassle!

    From what I understand, choppy videos are not the problem of DJI hardware. It's just the local hardware that you try to playback. I had a choppy video on my local PC. I uploaded the same video to YouTube and it played good. So it proved a point that my PC is not really up to it but actual footage has no issue with default settings.
