You have made a project in Adobe Premiere CS4, SC5, CS6, or Premiere Pro, and when you reopen it... Simply, in "Program" window, the Play - Stop Toggle (Space) button is not working!
You press it again and again, you try it several times, you press the Space bar on the keyboard, nothing happens!
The Play button seems to be pressed and changes from arrow to square, but the video in the Timeline does not ever start!
You try to move the cersor to another position, maybe in other time it works...
Nothing happens! The seconds do not count up, the Play-Stop button is not responding, it won't ever play, it wont't work, it just freezes ins Square on the monitor.
The strange is that all other buttons in Program window work perfect! Also the Step back, Step Forward buttons.
Don't worry any more... Maybe it is a known Adobe Premiere bug in the software. If it really is, the following shall resolve this problem.
If these instructions don't work, consider upadating your PC's hardware. Some plain/old/over-loaded computers are not effective in Video Editing! :-)
