Hi Ken,

  Have you encoded to FLV format? That might help.

  Also, you may want to try to utilize a streaming video player like:

A player like that should ensure that the player has downloaded enough
of the video, before it starts playing it - eliminates the stutter.

This is called "progressive download". I think it can be loaded as an
"movie clip" externally from Flash - ie it integrates into HTML and
FLASH based websites.

There are other solutions out there like this too, which are good for
producers who don't want waste time reinventing the wheel when it
comes to players.
