Have you been monitoring cpu usage during this issue?
Video players are generally very heavy on cpu time, and not so heavy on the graphics card. Stuttering could be a result of cpu choke.
Outside of that I would see if you have the latest version of vlc.

A final note if you are trying to play actual full bluray streams I had to get the latest version of powerdvd to get that smooth on my sytems. VLC/kmplayer/wmp/gom no player would play them smooth but powerdvd did.

I did find this on the vlc forums.
The VideoLAN Forums • View topic - Flicker when playing video

pretty much thinking the player is causing it at this point so you may want to cruise there if this doesn't solve your problem. Sorry I wasn't more help, I tried.

You should be able to play the video in windows media player with a codec pack installed. I use this one.

Well we can't point any finger at any system component directly and cpu usage seems under control. I'm starting to wonder if there may be a problem with the video itself. (vlc is generally really good for compatibility and general playback)

hmmm... i forgot to mention this:
the HD screen is new and i put it yesterday instead of a crappy Proview i had (sure, i updated it's driver, etc).
i never had this problem before (i'm using dual monitors for years)
