    the reason for it stopping and starting is because your system hasnt been able to "buffer" enough information on the file, so your viewing rate is faster than the downloading rate of the file, so it has to pause to get enough information back on your machine, to carry on your viewing

    inside media player, i believe there is an option to increase the amount of buffer required before it starts to play the file,or, when it starts to download(buffer) the file, simply click stop, the file should continue to be downloaded and when it has finished you can play it back in its entirety

    you will notice how much buffer is available by the different coloured marks on the viewer
