Video stuttering topics tend to derail really quickly, so I hope you don't mind I step in and address a few things

This was finally addressed by a major upgrade at the very core of the software.
My memory of this is resolume never saying 'it's fixed' but saying 'it's better'.
Generally, video pro's still use hardware playback solutions ( BMD hyperdecks for example) for mission critical playback and use software solutions for other purposes..
This is true in so far that computer based video playback will always be susceptible to other processes interfering. If another process starts accessing the disk or requesting a lot of CPU cycles, we cannot guarantee that playback will continue smoothly. This is where the use of hardware playback would come in.
However! We are in fact saying we have completely fixed smooth playback in Resolume. We are on par with any application on your computer: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=12904&p=71182
. If OP reports that Alley is able to play back the file smoothly, the Resolume engine should be able to do this too and there shouldn't be a need for additional hardware.

This was a bug with fractional framerate values with our Adobe exporter plugin that shipped with Alley 1.0.2, and has been addressed with the plugin that shipped with Alley 2.0.0. It was not a codec problem (actually the codec is only included for people still using QT based exporters), we were just not setting the value correctly in the first version of the plugin.
If OP reports that the file plays back correctly in Alley, it is not a problem with the framerate being exported wrong, since the wrong framerate would be baked in to the file.
It is however a good thing to be aware of, and thank you for posting it.

Alley and Resolume actually share the same playback engine. Resolume's actually can be forced to be a bit tighter by setting the framerate cap in the composition settings. viewtopic.php?f=12&t=12904&p=71182
You mention the file plays back okay in Alley, so this is not a problem with our playback engine. Since Alley plays back single files without being displayed on a secondary output, I'm not sure how you conducted the test. Either way, I'd be most interested to hear results of the same test done using Resolume (playing a single file, without going out to a secondary display).
