I don't think there is a standard way to expose the frame rate. We might
even want something more general than the frame rate, since conceivably you
could have a video format where the interval between frames is variable.

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
