This definitely was my problem. I've had syntax errors this whole time, how
embarrassing! My program works now at least, albeit kind of slowly, with a
lot of overused buffer errors, and some occasional hiccups loading all my
videos. Any tips on cleaning up latency and buffers perchance?

This part as it turns out, is probably just a fluke on my part. Yesterday
that input would only take 59.94, but today I started with a different test
video loaded, and it is happy to use 60. So I'll just have to be careful to
check those before hand, but I will keep in mind the fractional form.
