Just curious as to something i've come across from tv episodes and movies i've downloaded on kazza lite. Several websites I have visted have listed standard NTSC framerate as 29. 97, and NTSC film as 23.976, if that is the case then why are most of the video files I download off of kazaa lite files that come up under VirtuaDub file information as only having framerates of 14.985? Is there anything I can do to reencode the video to raise the framerate to NTSC or NTSC film framerate standards? If not, then why are so many people encoding their divx/xvid videos with such a low framerate? I talked to a friend of mine who does professional video editing and conversion and he told me that a framerate of 14.985 is actually lower than old camcorders made back in the early 80's used. I can understand maybe the possibility of saving on file size, but by setting the bitrate that low, it makes it almost impossibe (at least for me so far) to be able to make a quality VCD or SVCD of the video file. Are there any websites that address this issue or ways to correct the problem?
