You may want to try avidemux2 there is an older version in the ports 
(partially my fault)  if you'd like an updated pre-release version I could 
send you a port skeleton.  IIRC the author is currently adding DVD authoring 
features.  Check on the forums for the latest updates or features, those 
folks most likely can help you a bit better.
