100% CPU usage every now and then while playing videos

I am trying to edit videos using my mini DV camera and such. I can capture
the video fine. But when i try to play back the clip it plays back choppy and
my CPU usage is at 100%. Other times it plays back choppy then steadies out
with a CPU usage of 100% and then about 50-60%.
And rarely it will play back smoothly, with an initial jump to 100% then
goes down a few seconds later.
Most of the time it is always choppy and the CPU usage is at 100% for a
while. I can't watch the videos properly this way and it is annoying.
What is the problem? Is it my processor?
My specs are........
1 GB RAM
995 MHz Athlon processor
30GB internal hard drive
80 GB external hard drive (where videos are captured and played)

I can play back avi's fine on my office 750 Athlon. How is the external
drive connected? You'd need firewire or usb 2 for video work.
