VSE: Preview in Video Sequencer window sometimes displays wrong frame
Open, Needs Information from UserPublic


System Information
Operating system: Windows 10 x64 Pro (1809, ver 10.0.17763.720)
Graphics card: Nvidia GTX 1060

Blender Version
Broken: Tested with 2.80 Release and 2.81 (f3a4f12ac090)

Short description of error
In the VSE, the preview in the Video Sequencer window does not always show the correct video frame when navigating forth and back.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Open this blend file:
  2. Drag the video mentioned below into the VSE
  3. Navigate to frame 551
  4. Navigate to frame 552. You see the image is different to frame 551.
  5. Navigate back to frame 551

Problem: After step 5, the preview still shows frame 552. You can step forth and back between 551 and 552 but the preview does not change even though it should.

I've uploaded the sample video. As I cannot publish it, I'd provide the link in a private message only.

Please note that the problem disappers if I shorten the video (by remuxing it in copy mode with ffmpeg and just changing the length).
I've narowed it down: If the video is longer than 5:51.60, the problem appears, otherwise it does not.

Sent. Did you receive it?

@Willi (willi) I did receive it, but I am unable to download the file, it seems to let me watch it only.

Can you upload it to google docs or zip it?

Just press the Download button below the video.
