    I've been messing around with BD rips for my Apple TV. One thing I noticed is the fps. Once I've ripped a disk using MakeMKV, VLC reports that the fps is 23.976, while Handbrake reports it to be 23.81. It seems to do this for all my BD rips. I thought NTSC format was 23.976 and PAL was 24. Which one is correct? I can't understand why Handbrake thinks it's 23.81.

    Also, once the encode is done, VLC reports it to have a framerate of 23.98. What the heck is going on?

    NTSC DVD = 23.976 or 29.970fps (depending if source is film or tv)
    PAL DVD = 25fps
    Blu-rays = 23.976fps (blu-ray has no PAL or NTSC, all blu-rays are the same regardless of region)

    Yes almost all are at 23.976fps but if it is 1080i it will be 1080i50 (European Standard) which won't playback on most US HDTVs/BD Players :)

    Yep, the only odd Blu-ray I've got in my collection of over 70 is a David Gilmour concert disk, its 1080i60 and region A, everything else in my collection is 1080p24. Theres always one disk that messes up the set:D
