Your 2. is fine but because you have a variable duty cycle there is a DC
component whenever the high level time and the low level time are
unequal. The DC component will saturate the integrator. Depending on
what you want to accomplish, there are several solutions most of which
are very simple. You might be able to use just a simple RC network.
