Whenever I import a video into my S1 session, it plays back all skippy and choppy.
I've read in other forum posts that the S1 video uses Quicktime and Quicktime only plays nice with the 32bit version of S1. So, I installed the latest version of S1 32bit (on my 64bit computer) and updated my Quicktime, but it's still playing back poorly.
Any other solutions?

I'm not much of a video guy, so forgive me if I'm not looking at specs correctly. But, just looking at "Properties" of the file I find:

1920x1080
6944kbps

Do those sound like real specs?

They do sound right.

Without your system specs, I cannot make an absolute judgement. But that is a high definition file and may be too high to use as a reference.
Most of the time all you need is a 'draft quality' video to keep you in the right place.
As long as the frame rate is kept the same, you can use a lower res and lower bit rate version. I personally wouldn't use a 1080p 7Mb as a cue. I would try 480p at 1Mb.

There are lots of apps that can achieve this for you. Many are free, but I use 'Ultra MP4 video converter' when I need a quick render.
Otherwise I use 'Vegas Movie Studio Platinum'.

As far as the '64bit vs 32bit' thingy, I cannot comment. I would try a lower resolution video file first, and see how you go. Also have a look at the system resources ('Cntrl Alt Del' on PC) when you do this and see how your CPU is handling the combined load. 1080p video can be a huge system load.

I have the same problem. I try to sync some sounds to a movie file. It was Full HD so I rendered it down to a very small filesize 1/4 of the size of the original. Playback is totally not an issue.

I tried Studio One 2.6.2 in 32 and 64bit mode, I played with sample sizes and more. But most of the times when I hit play, video playback is very choppy, halts, skips half a second to a second and then mostly plays fine. But doing edits and syncs with this behaviour is super annoying. I need to start playback about 4-5 seconds before the edit for all choppyness to mostly go away. Doing little edits that was is a waste of time.

I'm on a very new late 2012 iMac, top spec'd so I'm sure it's not the performance of drive or memory or CPU. Anybody else still experiencing such problems on Mavericks with Studio One v2?

You'll also need to check what codec was being used when you transcoded the video. Some codecs may give you issues when decoding if it isn't in the right format.
