# How to play a video strip backward in blender 2.8?

If I select a specific strip from a clip in video sequencer and in strip tab under video -> playback direction -> backward, something funny happens. Can someone tell me whether there is some other way to play the video strip backward.I

Play in reverse Shift-Ctrl-Spacebar usually lags for me until the clip is mostly cached. You'll see the clip cache build as an orange bar below the tracks in Sequence.
Look into cache allocation via Blender's Preferences ... System ... Sequencer Cache Limit and into Proxies. These and other tips will help you squeeze more performance from your machine.
