Worked: 2.79b Hash (32432d91bbe)
Short description of error
I can't get the Video Sequence Editor (2.8) to run smoothly its always full of hickups.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
I Just open a new instance of Blender 2.79b go to "video editing" import the (my first animation) file i attached and it plays without hickups from the beginning.
Now i do the same exact steps in Blender 2.8 and i can't get it to without hickups. In addition to this, it seems like the Memory usage increases with every play and pause i do by around 20-30 MB so like you can see on my screenshots, i reached 5GB in no time and its still choppy.
