Sometimes videos straight out of After Effects can be slow, or "stutter-y". What I've found is that bringing the video into Premiere Pro and exporting it from Premiere (essentially re-rendering the video in Premiere) can help with this significantly.
You can try transcoding to a lower quality format that would be easier to play back. If the video itself is stuttering, then the lower quality will still stutter in the same way. If you are limited by your playback speed, then the lower quality version should play smoothly. If it plays smooth at lower quality, then you know that the original file is good. ...
Personally, I use fraps. The only reason I use fraps is because I used to record desktop footage a ton. However, if you get the free version of fraps, it should allow you to see the framerate of the video playing back while the program is open.
