    The video I record with my EM-5 can look a little "jumpy" sometimes... and I don't mean that look when your shutter speed is fast, it just looks like it skips a beat here and there.
    Is that normal? Is it because I don't have the mega-fastest SD card out there?

    What's the processor and ram of your computer?

    What class of card did you use? For video class 4 is the lowest limit and I have seen them not like HD video. When I shoot HD I always use a class 10 card as it is more than fast enough.

    I think it could be just your media player. Before you try anything else give VLC media player a try. I had the same exact problem! It turned out the videos were good but the rendering by the other players I was using was simply not suited for OM-D files.

    Try Splash Lite it is pretty good at high bitrate files, better than VLC IMO.

    Yep, I'll bet it's the video player, too. Video from the E-M5 shouldn't stutter at all, and your computer is fully capable. Next thing to check is the card used for recording.
