After Effects Render Problems

I am trying to render a large video in after effects but every time it finishes rendering and I play the movie (using VLC) it stops and starts constantly, not playing smoothly.
How can I fix this? I have tried everything.
I am saving as a .mov
the dimension of the video is 1920px X 1080px
it's set as D1/DV NTSC Widescreen (1.21)
the frame rate is 29.97
I am using all the standard settings to render apart from ticking the audio output

I have a smaller version set at 1024px X 576px at the same frame rate and setting and it is playing perfectly after render.

Any suggestions on what I can do to make this video play correctly?

Do other 1920x1080 MOV play fine on the system?

Have you tried the bad video on another more powerful system (better video card)?

Have you tried compressing the bad video with something like Handbrake to a tighter format and seeing if that plays smooth?   If it did, i think that would point to the video card needing more compression to handle the video or the system needing a more powerful video card

Other large files also stop and start not one has played smoothly.
Have not tried it on another system, I will give that a go and if that fails I'll go with Handbrake as you suggested.
Thank You
