Playing 1080p videos on my 2017 5K iMac using QuickTime. If I skip ahead in the video on the play bar, QuickTime will freeze requiring a Force Quit. To avoid this, after the skip I must press the Pause symbol, then the Play symbol. Worse, it’s not consistent but still happens more than 3/4ths of the time, many different videos. Suggestions?
