I don't know much about it, but that seems odd. One of the standard
tweaks in camera work, in the old days, used to be overcranking and
undercranking; ditto for playing the film. I'd have expected that
digitizing would make all of that seamless as well as extending the
Looking at 'man mplayer', it seems like they've got several switches that are

Override video framerate. Useful if the original value is wrong or missing.
Specify a frames per second (fps) value for the output file, which can be different from that of the source ma?
terial. Must be set for variable fps (ASF, some MOV) and progressive (30000/1001 fps telecined MPEG) files.
For each ifps input frames the filter will output ofps frames. The ratio of ifps/ofps should match the
-fps/-ofps ratio. This could be used to filter movies that are broadcast on TV at a frame rate differ?
ent from their original framerate.
