v14.8, 14.9, 15.0 do not allow me to playback videos on my computer setup
I've never had an issue with Premiere like this until these last 3 versions. Have updated to each one and then had to downgrade back to 14.7 since I literally cannot playback any video - it just shows a grey box - pressing play or scrubbing on the timeline (program or source) don't work. Have tried changing playback to software only as well and doesn't change anything (which makes me think it doesn't have to do with my graphics card).
Issue is, now I can't even downgrade back to 14.7 since it's not available on Creative Cloud or their website. I guess I'm going to have to find a torrent of it to be able to do my job now. Been waiting for 1.5 hours to talk to an Adobe rep as well, and I doubt they'll be able to help.
My PC is definitely old but I don't why they'd suddenly supporting it on v14.8
CPU: AMD FX-8350
MOBO: ASUS M5A99FX PRO 2.0
RAM: 24GB DDR3
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7800
Any suggestions on what to do??

Please share some sample file which you are not able to playback.
the Driver version which you are using.

Can't you transcode media to a format that will play back in your system? I don't like editing with Long GOP anyway, personally.
