That's really slow all around.
Are you wired or wireless at one end or both ends? If wireless try wired [if possible] and see if the issue still exists.
Are you pulling the movie up directly from the A-TV or trying to AirPlay it from the computer.. I always skip the AirPlay and pull it up directly from the A-TV via my server.
I've never had anything nearly of what you're describing, but when it seems to start slowing down for me a re-boot of modem and router speeds it right back up.

I have the same issue with home movies. Interestingly I was able to start playback immediately for my first video. I stopped it and selected another video and all i get is the progress indicator. I then have the same problem for any movie or audio track.
I'm using Windows 8 Pro w/AppleTV 3rd gen.

Just a quick update...if I restart iTunes on my PC it works fine for 1 video and then returns to the bad behavior.

Thanks for the ideas. Turning OFF AirPlay seemed to do the trick (at least for now)! I appreciate the help Magnum 740 and everyone else posted.
