media player should buffer a little longer like the regular player for itunes content does.
Takes a little longer to start playing but guarantees less skipping.
I second this suggestion. Some movies stutter occasionally because the buffer isn't quite large enough to keep up with spikes in bit rates during certain scenes.
a user customizeable option in the settings would help to set up a range from 1k to 1MB...
