[Libav-user] Erratic encoding issue: Crazy framerates.

Hi all,

Thank you in advance for your help.
I wrote a program that takes videos as input (H264), process filters on it and encode a modified video in MP4 (simple profile).
Everything works fine but the fact that some videos are encoded with crazy frame rates, like 2500 or 24000 fps.
I assume the problem is related to the way I manage timestamps. I tried tens of workarounds to no avail.
Here is the resulting infos of both an example that fails and another that is OK.

Any help would be a relief. Thanks!
