Hello and welcome to the forum!
If you tried different players with the same result then it seems that your computer isn't good enough for the job.
You can try lower resolution to test the player and remember that 4K is the new standard.

All computers but purpose built will struggle with anything over 1080p. Read up on editing through a proxy. Is the only way to do it without testing your patience.
