In this situation:
- The patch is available for everyone who wants to try it

for many PAL users. Sorry.

+#define FRAMESPERSEC 30
This affects the timeline of recordings, correcting the length (in mins 
and secs) of NTSC recordings, but also breaks it for PAL recordings. 
Making it configurable is nice, but a 'real' fix should pick the right 
value based on the recording itself, so PAL and NTSC recordings can
