Comment (by pbennett):

 I see in your log that there are many ongoing messages that say
 "Player(0): Waiting for video buffers...", and these never stop. I assume
 these are related to the problem. I ran a test where I set that secs_min
 value to 0.01 and to 1.5. When I set it to 0.01 and played a HD live tv
 broadcast, the picture and sound are perfect, but I see the regular
 "Player(0): Waiting for video buffers..." messages that do not stop
 coming. When I set the higher value of 1.5 it still plays perfectly but I
 do not see those messages in the log.

 If I pause for a second and then resume, there are a bunch of messages
 saying video is ahead of audio, dropping video frames, and then playback
 continues without any further "Waiting for video buffers" messages.

 Please explain exactly what you mean by "stuttering". Is there
 interruption of the audio? Or is it some sort of video effect?
