Stephen Swaney (stiv) added a comment to T56691: Footage playback issue in Blender VSE .

As discussed on IRC, my current working theory is that there is something funky in your particular .blend, perhaps something involving the compositor. We need a .blend to debug this.
A .blend is essentially a memory dump of blender data and all it's current settings. In this case, the settings are the important part IMHO, which is why a youtube video is useless.
