Another Silent Film (Framerate Question)

https://www.mediafire.com/file/lmsnp...tclip.avi/file

What is the proper way to get this to the correct speed?

Any help would be much appreciated.

There is no reference online for framerate of silent films. Do you know of one?

JohnMeyer recently [within Covid-19 era] made an excellent post on such framerates for silent films,
do search or wait a little for John to show up.

EDIT:
Think maybe this was one I was thinking of:

EDIT: @JohnMeyer,
Seems there is a JohnMayer user on-site, no posts. You spell your name wrong ? [I've probably spelt as such at times]

No, I just thought that the subject has been dealt with somewhere
https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.p...SpeedOfSilents

When the film was taken with a hand-cranked camera it will be something like a 'variable unknown framrate' depending on the operator, and one can only make a best guess, I am afraid.

Quick summary:

Sound film: 24 fps
1930s onward 8mm & 16mm silent film: 16 fps
Super 8 film: 18 fps
Pre-1930 silent film: 10-18 fps (often hand-cranked; no standard)

It's already at the correct speed.

Just a very general one:

The closer we got to the sound era, the closer to 24fps they got. Many late-period silent films were meant to be played at 24fps.
