I think mencoder (a part of multimedia/mplayer) can do what you want.
It handles mpeg2video.
"mencoder (MPlayer's Movie Encoder) is a simple movie encoder,
designed to encode MPlayer-playable movies (see above) to other
MPlayer-playable formats (see below). It encodes to MPEG-4
(DivX/XviD), one of the libavcodec codecs and PCM/MP3/VBRMP3 audio in
1, 2 or 3 passes. Furthermore it has stream copying abilities, a
powerful filter system (crop, expand, flip, postprocess, rotate,
scale, noise, RGB/YUV conversion) and more."
