I'm not a huge Vudu user, but that was how I fixed that minor issue at the time.
I've deleted and re-installed the Vudu app several times before, even after factory resets, but I did it again anyway and it DID
help the issue. I can't say fixed completely but the video in watchable/normal for the first time for me and the audio is fine as always (watched Mad Max: Fury Road, Pacific Rim, Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow, etc. in Dolby Vision without the choppiness of before).
The TV's GUI speed still seems slower than when not in the Vudu app but seems ever so slightly better. Keep in mine I only bring up the GUI speed not because I'm a nitpick or anything I bring it up just to note a peculiar side effect that I've observed while the Vudu app's video got choppy in Dolby Vision that's not present otherwise.
What has changed? I don't know. Maybe another app update fixed a memory leak or got reduced in size? Maybe the Vudu app had to be deleted and re-installed after all other apps were installed/updated? Maybe using and leaving a certain other app causes a memory issue for Vudu? I'll have to remember what I've done if the issue returns. Whatever it is, it affects the TV's GUI itself which shouldn't happen: TV memory issue? The Vudu app was last updated 11/3/16 (Version 3.0.14).

Note the TV GUI still seems slower within Vudu but isn't as bad as it was when the Vudu video was choppy (also note it appears to be slowness with the GUI just being within the Vudu app regardless of Dolby Vision) - also note how the GUI pops up from the bottom of the screen, the speed of the animation at the top of each app 'blade' as the cursor is moved over them and note that I moved the cursor slowly to show this off - the cursor doesn't slow down: just the GUI:
