[MPlayer-users] 3:2 pulldown SVCDs play too fast

Greetings -

	If I use MPlayer on a VOB file (or DVD) that has a movie using a 
	3:2 pulldown everything works great.

	However if I transform that VOB into a SVCD (using the mjpegtools
	package of programs) the resulting MPEG-2 stream plays 20% too fast
	even though the 'repeat first field' flag is set.

	Using "-fps 23.976" I can force SVCDs with a 3:2 pulldown to play
	correctly.   This suggests that the 'repeat first field' flag is
	being overlooked during playback of non-VOB/DVD movies.     Does this
	sound reasonable and correct?    

	If that is the case how difficult would it be to change MPlayer to
	always handle a 3:2 pulldown?
