ffmpeg, mytharchivehelper report wrong fps for some .nuv files

Mytharchivehelper incorrectly reports some of my transcoded .nuv files as having a fps of 29.9167 when it is actually 29.97 by NTSC standard. This error results in audio sync issues when exporting the video with Mytharchive. I can fix the audio sync by hacking the script to always return a fps of 29.97, which pinpoints the incorrect fps as the cause.

Through some digging I found that mytharchivehelper gets its fps value from libavformat/utils.c, so the problem appears to be with ffmpeg. I don't know enough about the code to be sure, but perhaps ffmpeg revision 6544 fixes the problem?

I can supply a .nuv file affected by this (not all of them are) for testing if needed. Attached is the output of mytharchivehelper for an offending .nuv.

Hopefully this will be fixed the next time Isaac resyncs with ffmpeg. If not reopen the ticket and I'll take another look at it.
