I've also come across this problem, however, I was able to fix it (works so far).
There are two options:
1. Open PS3 Media Server and go to Tab > Transcoding Settings > Common transcode settings > General settings > Transcode buffer maximum size, in megabytes (maximum: 600):: I changed the default 600
and now my videos, including anime, play without skipping, stuttering, or crashing.
2. Edit PMS.bat (located in PS3 Media Server default directory) file and change ONLY THE NUMBER
from this string "-Xmx768
M" to something higher, like: 1024
, etc. Make sure your computer has enough available RAM, very important!

(Possible question for the creator)NOTE:
I upgraded from ver 1.60.0 and always edited the PMS.bat to increase the java heap size but after installing ver 1.81.0 and editing the PMS.bat, I get an error when attempting to run the program, "Windows cannot find 'javaw'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.
" I do not understand why this occurs; even after changing "javaw -Xmx768M" to "java -Xmx768M" I receive the same message, "Windows cannot find 'java'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.
