Longform playback issues

I know this discussion has been brought up in the past, but has there been any developments in Flames ability to playback long form media without caching or proxies? Loading a 1.5 hour Pro Res in Premiere and Resolve with no issues, and Flame cant even begin to play it back. I am running Flame 2024.2.1 on a Mac Studio Ultra with 128 G of Ram, with 25Gb/s Nas connection…same as Resolve and Premiere. WHY is this an issue in 2024?

There was apparently an update that fixed this issue but im yet to experience an improvement. I also thought it was a linuyx only issue?

I will say this was playing back EXR sequences and anything above a 422hq prores.

It is extremely frustrating

Has there been any updates on this issue? I just restored an archive on a MacBookPro (OS 13.5.2, 64GB ram) with Flame 2024.2.1 and whenever I hit play on the timeline, nothing happens except the Mac’s beach ball spins.

It was the audio. After replacing the original audio file, it plays.
