unfortunately, when I developed the current mpeg muxer I could only
test it on a very permissive dvd stb. Now that I have replaced it with
a less permissive one I can experience the same stuttering.
In short: I have begun to rewrite parts of the code to respect certain
buffering constraints that  are  currently ignored, but it's a quite 
difficult task
that is only half way. In the meantime try to use -of lavf -lavfopts
