I would suggest looking at ProjectX and Cuttermaran - both use the GPL
and I've been using them for over 2 years now for correcting and
editing MPEG2 video and MythTV recordings.

I'd also strongly recommend VirtualDubMPEG2 (a modified VirtualDub
that can open MPEG2 recordings) if you want to convert MPEG2 to XVID
etc, due to the wide range of plugins available for VD.
