It turns out this changeset breaks auto-scan detection for DVDs w/24fps
For this content the repeat_pict field alternates between 0 and 1 --
causing 9377 to force all frames as interlaced when they are in fact
progressive. With bob deint it looks TERRIBLE.
By commenting out the hack the DVD plays correctly.
So, this comes down to the lesser of two evils. How bad does telecined
content look without the hack? I think I found one case (The DaVinci
Code preview on the Fun With Dick and Jane DVD) and there were only some
mild interlacing artifacts. Of course all of this is in the eye of the
I think 24fps progressive DVDs are pretty much the norm (at least in
region 1) these days, whereas telecined content is less likely.
On a separate note: I've been unable to find documentation as to WHY the
repeat_pict field is alternated for 24fps progressive. My best guess is
it is trying to show what's needed to correctly telecine the video --
although I would think the pattern would look like 0,0,0,1 not 0,1,0,1.
