My original comment related more to media processors than media players,
if all you want to do is play then fine.

If someone wants to change the frame rate its usually because they want
it at that different frame rate in order to do something further with it
(as was the case for the original query). In those circumstances I do
not think the original comment was inaccurate, but I apologise for not
being precise enough.

(and you could argue that only one other app falls within the "not much"
