[mythtv-users] Video stutters with Internal DVD Player

I am having problems with DVD playback.  The video stutters slightly every few 
seconds.  I have tried various decoder settings:  ffmpeg, libmpeg2, XvMC, all 
to no avail.  If I set mplayer as the DVD player, the playback is smooth 
(mplayer is using libmpeg2 for decoding according to the mythfrontend log) so 
it does not appear to be a hardware issue.

There are no entries in mythfrontend.log when the stutter happens.

I am running mythtv 0.21 on mythbuntu.  
Nvidia GeForce 7300 GT
