When you are importing the QT into Flash is it re-encoding it into an SWF
and playing it from frames on the timeline? Is it converting it to an FLV?
If so, skip the QT h264 step and encode your video directly as an FLV. If
you or someone you know has Sorenson Squeeze, youll be able to make a
really nice looking FLV with h264 encoding and it should play very nicely
with Flash using either the built in flvPlayback component or any other
method of loading and playing FLVs.

Stuttering playback could be from trying to play it from frames on the
timeline and a slower processor or slower internet connection... Anywhere
that a bottleneck of information is created it will make your Flash movie
(video or not) stutter.
