Help making videos run more smoothly

I have an adequate PC to run a 1080p video in any format. I have a 65" 3d 120hz Samsung HD 3D smart TV. That's what I use for monitor for my PC. However no matter what, unless it's a blu-ray. They(blu-ray) run incredibly smooth on my TV/PC. However when I use VLC It seems to have micro stuttering I'm assuming? And Google Chrome watching, netflix and hulu it does the same thing. I have been using my Nvidia control panel to basically fortify Chrome and VLC and it's still doing the same thing, minus tearing, vsync helped that I guess.

My Setup
i5 2500k @5ghz
GTX 660ti(2days will be a GTX 680 but I'm sure this isn't my problem)
16gb of ddr3 ram
Raid 0 HDD array.
So I'm pretty sure my actual system isn't a limit in anyway for a simple video.

My questions
What can I do to fortify my VLC settings in VLC, what will even out my frame rate or make it appear smoother?
Same with Google Chrome, what settings can I use to eliminate my slight stutter? It's annoying with panning. Now just to make sure this is realized. If I use my actual TV to watch Hulu and Netflix, it's perfectly smooth and incredible looking. But the TV interface is absolutely terrible.

Or if there is an app to download, a setting in Nvidia Control Panel, a setting in Chrome, or VLC. What can I do to help out? Any suggestions would be great.

I have had this problem for YEARS in VLC and people have reported it to them without a fix. It seems there is a screw up with the frame rate that causes the stuttering. Try a different program. Honestly. If i use any other program to play video that VLC stutters in, it works fine. VLC should have fixed this years ago yet it just doesnt seem they are interested in it. Something about doubling the framerate but depending on the original framerate the doubling is not perfect and hence you get the micro stutter. I read too many articles about it and nobody has any type of fix that I found, so I just gave up.

As for Chrome, no clue as I do not use it. I just dont think Chrome is that good. Try IE or Firefox and see if you have the same issue.

Hopefully changing from VLC to another player will solve that problem at least. *shakes fist in air* damn you videolan, fix this already!

Which video player do you currently use? And I'll give this a shot when I get off of work in a few hours.

Sorry, I forgot to check back yesterday :(

I use multiple programs from Cyberlink to Windows media player. Really doesnt matter much, it will depend on which you like the best for the interface.

I have been wanting to play with this one - http://www.kmpmedia.net/ - but just have not had the time yet.

If you download K-Lite Codec Pack it gives you an acceleration option (DXVA) when you are installing the program. It might be worth installing to see if it works or not.

Seems much better, thanks, I only notice when I look for it now, and that's even minimal. That is due to compression I'm sure. Now only if a browser would allow some kind of anti judder or something.

I have the k-lite pack installed and I never noticed a difference. Maybe I have to reinstall. Any fast motion gives me the jumpies.

Try running the video in MPC-HC and see what happens. To my knowledge when you pick the DXVA to use it only works with MPC-HC.

LOL well in that case I can just keep using Cyberlink since that works without the jumpy effect. I am looking for something that actually works with VLC to solve the problem but I think only the developers can fix it :(
