 Summary of the bug:
 When transcoding h264 in mp4 with non-whole frame rates to mpegts and
 back, the avg_frame_rate and packet duration is altered. This can be
 problematic when concatenating multiple mp4s with the concat protocol with
 the same settings because the avg_frame_rate is not normalized.

 How to reproduce:
 I'm working with this ffmpeg:
 ffmpeg version N-63724-g5766543 Copyright (c) 2000-2014 the FFmpeg
   built on Jun  3 2014 07:41:35 with Apple LLVM version 5.1
 (clang-503.0.40) (based on LLVM 3.4svn)
   configuration: --enable-gpl --enable-postproc --disable-debug --enable-
 libmp3lame --enable-libfdk_aac --enable-pthreads --enable-libx264
 --enable-libvpx --enable-nonfree --enable-libass --enable-libfreetype
 --enable-static --extra-libs=-ldl

 The file below is 23.976fps content. avg_frame_rate reported by ffprobe is
 2997/125. The pkt_duration_time is 0.041708.
 ffmpeg -i http://ted.conferences.s3.amazonaws.com/test/outro.mp4 -c copy
 -bsf:v h264_mp4toannexb -f mpegts test.ts
 ffprobe -show_streams -select_streams v:0 test.ts 2>/dev/null | grep

 ffprobe outputs: avg_frame_rate=24000/1001. I think this change is ok, but
 I wanted to include it. The video pkt_duration_time is now 0.041700.

 Next, we transcode the video back to mp4:

 ffmpeg -i test.ts -c copy -bsf:a aac_adtstoasc test.mp4
 ffprobe -show_streams -select_streams v:0 test.mp4 2>/dev/null | grep

 ffprobe outputs: avg_frame_rate=10980000/457957. The video
 pkt_duration_time is still 0.041700.

 The avg_frame_rate is different for each file I bring through this
