Comment (by Eddy):

 I have the same troubles on Linux (Ubuntu).

 I was thinking about the accuracy of the time measurement. When you're
 playing a video, you need to measure the time with an accuracy of at least

 I know that depending on the OS you cannot have this accuracy. So i began
 to wonder if this was the cause of the stuttering issues. Don't we need to
 implement a kind of regulation system based on the clock presicion of the
 OS ?
