Yeah, I guess that makes sense (I just thought that it was checking for
time_base.num but forgot about time_base.den).  I'm completely lost in
ffmpeg's source code, where should the fix be? Maybe some intense debugging
might show who sets it to zero (if anyone does), but if not who should check

OK, Thanks again!
