I'd say one of three possible issues. Clogged catalytic converters, cylinder misfire, or a fuel delivery problem. Is the check engine light on? Welcome to the site!

Typical problem with our stangs. Try changing the coil pack, if that doesn't do it check/replace the wires, and change spark plugs. If it ain't all that a faulty crankshaft position sensor can also cause the sputter when accelerating. If none of the above fix the problem then you're looking at a clogged cat or a clogged fuel filter. I hope this helps

Test the coil pack, see if it's good, if not then replace.
Here's a link on how to do that:

Get it diagnosed or you may replace the top twenty items. Let the computers brain do the work for you

Yeah, he's right. The computer should read a code, for mine it was a missfire. Turned out to be coil pack

My car did something similar once, it only did it ONCE though. I thought maybe it was a bad fuel filter. So I changed it(never changed it before), it hasn't happened since, but I'm not so sure it was the problem.

Watched your video, and just an observation that I made was that it was happening right around where my stang shifts into the next gear (automatic). I hate to bring up the possibility, but it might be something with the tranny... Not sure. Bring it in.

I'm not sure if you fixed it or not but if your accelerating and it ticks it could be cracked exhaust head manifold as well

No sure if it fixed but my car did this to
Me a week ago and I got some gas treatment and after like 5 mins it ran like it was brand new. So you might have got some bad gas.
