Video rage

My Fuji FinePix S5600 records at 30.00030fps, 640×480, Motion-JPEG. Audio’s PCM, 16000Hz, mono, 128kbps.
I’ve got a 4-second animated graphic I want to use with my youtube videos, but it’s MP4, 25fps, 768×576, no audio track.

I’ve got VirtualDub and Avidemux, both free software. VirtualDub won’t load MP4 video, even with it’s import plugin. I can convert the resolution in Avidemux but can only do the frame rate to two decimal points (30.00 not 30.00030). This means it gives a sample rate mismatch in VirtualDub when trying to edit in with footage from the camera. Adjusting it in VirtualDub to 30.00030 still gives the mismatch error.

These programs only support appending as best I know, so you have to load the video segments into them in order. If I load the logo into VirtualDub, on the following video I get a mismatch and it fails. If I load it into Avidemux it stays with the logo segments lack of sound all the way through. If I give the logo a soundtrack from inside Avid, the sound on the following segment becomes gibberish. If I add a soundtrack to it in VD and load it in Avid the video scrambles.

Is there another free/cheap to use bit of software that’s simple and actually WORKS?
