I always record in 1080p, a few weeks ago I could watch my videos in editing and it was smooth, all of a sudden whenever I edit I playback my video so that I can add features and make edits it's so choppy and I cannot edit like this, but when I render the video after bearing choppy editing it's smooth, so I'm very confused! PLEASE HELP!!!

I had this too, very difficult when trying to time captions and use them for narration.  I fixed it on my system by setting  'Use software-only mode' under Hardware Acceleration within Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced.  Maybe this resolves the issue for you too.

Have you updated your video drivers recently, or perhaps your OS has done this for you through an update. This might explain why it has suddenly started happening.
