MPEG is not a frame based video format.  MPEG basically keeps
track of the changes in the pictures in between frames, not the
whole frame.  That's why it compresses so well.  There's probably 
software for Windows to allow you to generate whole frames and then
edit those frames and then make a new mpeg out of those frames.
Linux is pretty weak on the video editing tools at this time.
You might want to try looking at this site,
it might have something useful, but be aware, I don't know how
up to date his programs are.  Last time I tried his mpeg player,
it didn't compile very easily, or work very well.
