This file plays fine:
MKV - video stream: 3961 Kbps, 1280x720 (16:9), at 23.976 fps, AVC (High@L3.1)(2 Ref Frames)
audio stream: 384 Kbps, 48.0 KHz, 16 bits, 6 channels, AC-3
This file stutters after a couple of minutes:
MKV - video stream: 4930 Kbps, 1280x720 (16:9), @ 23.976 fps, AVC(High@L3.1)(CABC / 5 Ref Frames)
audio stream: 1509 Kbps, 48.0 KHz, 24 bits, 6 channels, DTS

Can anyone explain why the 1st video plays fine while the second is unwatchable? I don’t understand everything there, such as CABC??? or how DTS audio might significantly impact playability.
