Hi! I've bought GoPro Hero 6 recently and fairly familiar with video editing. When I take 1080p 120fps video and I'm slowing it down in video player like QuickTime or VLC or in video editer like Adobe Premiere I'm expecting to see a smooth slowmo, however the slow play back is choppy. My mac has 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Intel Iris 1536 MB. SD card I'm using for GoPro is 64 GB SanDisk Extreme Plus. Just in case this is an example of the video how I see it in QuickTime in slomo mode - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_ScRIl1Gvir6gkTkf-Il-G8s34AOhje3/view. I tried to play it in QuickTime and slow down in Premiere on more powerful computers, but the result is the same. Also, i tried 2 different cameras. So the question is: is there an issue at all or this is the behaviour that is expected and I'm just being dumb and should learn more about 120fps video editing?

When you export, what does the video look like? Have you uploaded to Vimeo or Youtube? If so please post an example here.
When applying slow motion in Adobe Premiere, what method are you using? Are you rendering the selection after applying the Slow motion effect? What are your sequence settings? In general, you wont see super fluid playback in the editor, especially with a low end computer.
Unfortunately, while you have a decent computer for everyday use, it's not very powerful for video editing. For example, I have a Quad Core i7, 32GB DDR3, 128GB SSD with NVIDIA GTX 1050 ti and I need to use 1/4 and 1/8 playback resolution and even then, it can get choppy at higher resolutions/frame rates.
A decent, but still nowhere near professional rig would be something like, Octa Core i7, 64GB DDR3, Samsung 970 Pro 1TB SSD with a NVIDIA GTX 1080.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ofP-XaX7lE_reks0pxqVinDfRz_EZLsA/view?usp=sharing - this is the video itself. Google Drive preview is not 120fps, but if you download the file it is 120.
For me it's just suprisingly frustrating if that would be just a computer power issue. I can see how the Premiere preview is not smooth, but I feel like QuickTime slow playback should be fine... Do you know any places where I can download some kind of sample 120fps video to test Premiere and QuickTime?
Thank you for your help!

I can't download your video right now as I'm at work, but if you can take a better video, maybe outside during daylight, I can take a look when I get home.
