Playing Movies in LR5 - Experiencing Delays / Latency

Hi. I'm experiencing latency when playing movies in LR5. I'm connected to my Windows server from a new/fast Macbook running 10.9. Right now, the batch that I'm experiecing this with are .MOV files, but it's happened with other formats as well. The movies play fine when I open them in QT from Finder, so I know it's not the server connection, which uses Gigabit ethernet. When I play them through LR5, I often experience delays where I hear the audio playing smoothly, but the video is frozen. Sometimes the videos play fine. There is no pattern as to when it breaks, and nothing different about those files. At times, when I switch back from Loupe to Grid view, I get the spinning timer wheel for several seconds, before it switches back. This even occurs on short movies - 2-3 minutes long, under 5MB.

I have tried restarting my mac, and my server. But, as I said, the issue is definitely with LR5 given that I have no issues playing these videos directly through QT.

I also noticed that the background process called dynamiclinkmediaserver is causing my CPU to go to 100%, or close to it, and the computer heats up.

This is unacceptable!
