I had the same problem. Removed Kaffeine and installed VLC. Still 
jerky, but changing the video output to X11 solved the problem. In 
Firefox I have all video formats (aside from flash) set to open  
/usr/bin/vlc (not the plugin). Furthermore, in order to watch Danish 
TV (not that it is worth the effort) you can install the firefox 
plugin 'mediaconncetivity'.
