video player only showing black

I am running Cubase 8.5.30 randomly while working the system locked up then CuBase stopped loading. After a few reinstalls I got it loading again. Currently running on a fresh clean install of 8.5 and then upgraded to 8.5.30 Now the video on the sequence shows the thumbnails but the video player is just showing black.

At one point I got an error stating that Quicktime could not be initialized because it was not the latest version. Everything I have is up to date.

I am running CuBase 8.5.30 on macOS Mojave 10.14.6

I thought maybe it was a graphics card issue but my graphics card doesn’t have mac drivers ATI Radeon RX 580 8GB.

The video plays fine everywhere else, it is just in CuBase I am running into issues.

Like I’m sure everyone faces, I’m on a deadline and running out of ideas.
