Im not sure if my logic is correct but in NuppelVideoPlayer.cpp I changed 
the following in HEAD and it seems ok. Im not sure if my logic is correct 
though but I think it is, especially the 2nd part. (patch appended for 
discussion purposes :-)
I think the adjustment is supposed to be based on the output rate (screen 
refresh), not the input rate.
what do you think?
Ive been running this for ages (over a year) and it seems ok when the rates 
are not the same.
