It works for me using lavc even when the frame rate is
bouncing all over the place (the licensing studio's bug
and titles at 29.970, the original titles at 23.976, some
inserted title content at 29.970, then back to 23.976
until the closing pops back in at 29.970... whew!).
NTSC dvd's can have all sorts of wackiness.
