Hmm. Will that in fact do what he's asking about?

If so, the man page entry is highly misleading on the subject.

As I read it, he wants to be able to toggle between 24fps playback and
25fps playback in midstream, without stopping the player.

While -speed as described in the man page would let him specify
framerates when starting out, I see no indication that it would allow
such a toggle; if in fact it would, as seems perhaps unlikely, then
there is no indication of how to change from one to the other.

Have I succeeded in muddling this up?
