Thanks for the quick reply. Should I add decimate to the end? If it drops every 5th frame, it won't be doing the right thing, or will decimate=cycle=6 do what I want? Perhaps mpdecimate? Here is my first guess:
Is this what I should try?
If you recall, something about how mplayer dumps its vobs labels them as ~60fps, when they are really ~30.
