Could you please add video playing to lightroom cc? Its weird that you can import and store videos but not play them.

I can play them ok. Which LR CC version and operating system are you using?

Ok, weird. Was in contact with Adobe support who said video playing is not a supported feature in LR CC only in LR Classic CC. I am using LR CC 2.2 and macOS Mojave.

Playing should work, you just can't edit in CC. (Playing won't work on Android)

I also sometimes encounter only the thumbnail frame instead of video playback in Lightroom CC on Windows 10 (maybe in 50% of cases when attempting to play video). But this is just a bug (in the other 50% of cases it works as intended). What I do to check that the video got imported properly is play it on my phone -- that way, I know it in the system without errors. 
So this should be rather a problem report than an idea in this forum.

I have constant video playback problems on Lightroom CC for Mac both on my MacBook Pro and my iMac Pro.... usually simply scrolling through images and hitting the occasional video brings up the spinning beach ball... sometimes video will eventually load and CC comes back to my control but sometimes I just get an error that the video player has stopped working.
