mplayer -framedrop -vo xv test.avi
mplayer -framedrop test.avi
For both options I still get the stutter.
50% of my CPU is free when playing this file.
I finally figured out that this is an alsa problem. I created a
.asoundrc file and changed the buffer_size and it fixed the problem.
I found this example .asoundrc file on the web. I'm not sure if I
need all these options but it works. Thanks everyone for the help.
~/.asoundrc file that fixed the issue.
# period_time 84000
# period_size 2048
# buffer_time 340000
# buffer_size 16384
# rate 48000
## buffer_size 4096
