Movie doesn't play smooth - very subtle stuttering

I'm referring to MKV playback using OpenPHT. The files play butter smooth on VLC and even PDVD15/16. What could be the problem?

    Have you tried it with PMP? If it happens with both Plex clients then odds are it’s an issue with Plex server. Otherwise it’s probably something going on with OpenPHT. What OS are you running?

    My rig:
    OpenPHT - HTPC - Intel NUC6i5SYH - Windows 10 Pro Anniversary Edition, 16 GB ECC memory, Dual core 1.9 GHz, 500 GB PCIE SSD, 1 GB Ethernet.
    PMS - HTMac Server - MacPro (late 2013) - OSX 10.12.3, 12GB ECC memory, Quad core 3.7 GHz, 1 TB PCIE SSD, 1 GB Ethernet. All media stored on NAS, mounted via smb.
    NAS - Iomega StorCenter ix4-200d: firmware v3.2.14.30167, 4 - 1 TB Western Digital Black (enterprise 1.5 million hrs MTtF), all services disabled except for CIFS. Dual homed 1 GB nics.
