Maybe not the same libraries being used. Maybe VLC is better at buffering and seeking video.

I certainly know that Quicktime is much quicker at this, as is Protools.

Nevertheless, it pays to use the right codecs.

Quicktime/MKV H264 without B-frames (keyframe distance 1 or 0 iirc). Quicktime PhotoJPEG.

They work very well, especially PhotoJPEG for quick seeking. Reapers video playback system is not up to par with the better candidates, but it works well enough to let you work, if you use the proper codec/container combo.
