Comment (by anonymous):

 This is a "me too". Latest mythtv and live tv studders. This is totally
 unrelated to XvMC (which I am not using). I guess this has something to do
 with the fact that live tv gets played back by reading a file which is at
 the same time written by mythtv backend. So I guess it's got something to
 do with the buffering or timing. Maybe the filesystem (and kernel version)
 plays a role here too.

 This is definitely a bug with mythtv which should get investigated and
 fixed. Reminds me- watching live tv (a few seconds behind) results in a
 short break when a file switch happens. That's pretty annoying too and I
 don't know if this is intended.
