Comment (by cehoyos):

 But if you encode to mov, you have to choose a constant frame rate because
 the mov muxer only supports constant frame rate (if you do not select it
 yourself with -vf fps, ffmpeg will automatically choose a constant frame
 rate as if you selected "-r" leading to the bad timestamps that you
 Or in other words: The output file in your command line also has constant
 frame rate (but with incorrect / displaced frame duplication). You can
 immediately see that when looking at the console output.
