    I use Toast 7 for that sort of thing.

    Not sure if there is a free alternative.

    Not too sure about this...

    But couldn't iDVD do this (maybe i.c.w. iMovie) if you have the right Codecs for QuickTime...?
    Get the DivX Codecs and give it a shot.

    Mpeg Streamclip might work for you:

    http://www.squared5.com/

    I use it to demux DVDs and convert them to editable quicktime files for clients that recorded to set top DVD recorders or DVD camcorders.

    I haven't used it to convert .avi files, to mpeg2, I use compressor, but it should work.
