Changing frame rate using h264

I hope I get this clear:

I have a 25 fps mkv and want to do a speed down to 24 fps. I did this already with DVD-sources using mencoder and reencoding audio and(!) video.

With h264-video, something made me think that I only have to reencode the audio (to get it to the proper playing time, using tools like here)
and mux video and reencoded audio to a new file, e.g.

Code:
mkvmerge --default-duration 0:24fps video.h264 --compression -1:none audio_reencoded.ac3 -o 24fps.mkv
Xine & Co. seem to play the file right, but my stand alone Blu-Ray-Player seems to use the original frame rate of the video, which leads to a unpleasant slide show.

To my surprise, mediainfo shows, that the information about the original frame rate is still there, e.g.:

Code:
24fp.mkv

So is this all about the question, whether a player uses the frame rate given by the container or the frame rate given by the video stream itself?

Or where does the information of the original frame rate come from? Is there a way to edit these information (maybe being placed in a header ....)?

Yes. With MKV files, the player should use the container framerate, I think.

Yes, by using roozhou's patched ffmpeg, for example.
