Sometimes the simple == best.

Since the data related to these videos... is very odd... seems some videos
contain streams with varying frame rates + maybe switching between interlaced
and noninterlaced... trying to transcode this footage might send ffmpeg to
the loony bin (loose it's marbles).

Try a two stage approach...

1) transcode each video with no filters to produce normalized footage, same
    frame rate, noninterlaced.

2) apply your filters to the normalized footage.

This may make your transcoding adventure bearable to enjoyable...
