Default Re: Waiting for video engine to launch. stuck progress bar

Blackmagic mini monitor was creating trouble with an ad composer (we traced it to being the source of problems.) No matter where it was put in various Thunderbolt ports, always put some kind of playback lag and video engine issues. Sessions would just shutdown Pro Tools when you'd try to play them with the video engine crashing.

Removed the mini monitor. No more problems. It hasn't been put back. We wasted enough time finding the issue that everyone was cranky with it.
Pro Tools Ult 2019.6, HDX 3, MTRX/SPQ, HD Omni Mac Pro 5,1 - 3.06 GHz 12 core - macOS 10.13.6 RAM 64GB, SSD 4 x 2TB, GPU GTX 980 4GB
