Eventually I found a ATI option in 'Video' menu saying "Enforce smooth video playback". I checked this and instantly the video was not choppy anymore.
I hope this helps anyone stuck in the same situation with an easy fix.
Unfortunately, for me, this option was already checked.
I'm using an Asus E35M1-M Pro (low-power, all-in-one micro-ATX board with built-on AMD E350 APU).
I noticed other options for things like "Edge Enhancement" and "De-Blocking," so I disabled them. I'd rather reduce the amount of tampering done by the video driver
...especially because ATI has proven to be completely incompetent when it comes to these things. For example, I still have to change some "dynamic contrast" option to keep my premium channels from strobing/flickering, even with the latest driver software. I had none of these problems with my Intel/NVIDIA Media Center systems. I left pulldown detection and "Enforce Smooth Playback" enabled. I was connected over VNC from work, so I can't tell if it fixed the video playback issues until I check when I get home.
