I used to get stuck with this problem. I finally solved it by changing the "video playback settings" from "the sequence settings" in the "sequence" menu. The default resolution is 1920 x 1080. I changed it to 640 x 360, and after that playback was always 100% smooth, even while using a mixture of .mts and .mvi full HD files, with contrast and brightness ...


mpv has very good real-time scrubbing using the mouse on the on-screen controls. It also has seek-while-paused, and accurate-seek (decode-from-prev-keyframe) for seeking backward by 1sec. Also frame-step backward and forward. (controls: , and .). It also has an A/B loop keybind, where you can easily get it looping over a part of the video. So basically ...
