Video stutters when played by Video Player

2. Enter Play mode
3. Observe that the video in the Game view stutters (it's sometimes barely visible, but stuttering is there)

Expected: the video doesn't stutter.

Reproduced in 2017.3.2f1, 2017.4.9f1, 2018.1.1f1, 2018.1.9f1, 2018.2.3f1, 2018.3.0a8, 2018.4.17f1, 2019.2.21f1, 2019.3.2f1, 2020.1.0a23

    Resolution Note:

    Disabling VideoPlayer's skip-on-drop setting will prevent skip-ahead during playback. Skip-ahead happens when a game iteration is longer than one video-frame's worth. This can happen in-editor due to various mechanisms being active (e.g. UI). Execution in standalone provides more stable iteration time.

    The greatest fun thing about the Mystery experience games is that the hero is researching a few cases or attempting to discover a few signs which make them intriguing. It is easy to visit website for help in essay. Illuminating riddles is extremely fun and we get this open door in these games.

    Yes, issue seems still present. It's as if the player jumps back a few frames occasionally. It doesn't seem to coincide with frames dropped event (no frame drops during playback, stuttering still present) This is extremely jarring when you have a video with lots of cuts. Also trying out various playback destinations doesn't seem to help. That is whether you render it on a mesh, renderTexture or camera plane, the result is still the same.

    Our video stutters quite a lot in a very simple project of video playing on a cube in an otherwise empty scene
