So you're saying you can't do it yourself... Still, the only way for you to get 
features added to an open source project is by providing patches (which may 
still get rejected even when you provide patches). Alternatively can you ask for 
someone to do it for you and to offer a reward (meaning, you offer a job).

My suggestion to you is to take Cehoyos' solution and to give it a try. Perhaps 
write a script using ffmpeg or ffprobe and see if you cannot detect the issue 
and fix it in a script. Only provide patches if you run into the problem 
regularly and when your solution doesn't break anything.
