In video editing mode, I added my own video that I shot from my mobile. I pressed the forward button and it went just one step/frame forward only. When I pressed the backward playback button, it played the whole video backward.

How can I make the forward playback button to play the whole video rather than just one step forward? Is there any setting I should look into for this?

Thank you. Tom.

  • $\begingroup$ maybe you just misplaced your video strip or your playhead? Anyway, it would be easier to figure out with a screenshoot or a blender file. $\endgroup$ Aug 16 at 13:21

  • $\begingroup$ In Preferences > System > Audio Device try change it to something else(ex. do not use Pulseaudio). $\endgroup$

Check that your Timeline Playback Sync option is set to “Play Every Frame.” Details are in this related answer.
