Loading video always stutters

I know this may just be an unavoidable part of UDK/UE3, but whenever a map is loading, the loading bink video always freezes and stutters. Even huge budget games suffer from this (COD, Ark, etc).

Because of this, I’ve chosen to use a static video so it’s not noticeable. But it would be nice to use an animated video.

Does anyone know of any tricks to prevent this stuttering? Some kind of pre-loading or something?

I don’t know. That’s something I’ve been wondering too. Some of my players said that they thought the game had crashed because the “stutter” stops my loading screen for so long. This is probably something I’ll look into deeper once my game is closer to finished.
