Question about video files (breaking into individual image frames, then reassembling)

I am wondering what techniques or programs out there I could use to complete the following steps:

1. Take video files (.mpg, .mov, .wmv, etc.) and break them apart into their individual frames.  I assume .jpg files with little/no lossy compression being applied (98-100% quality).

2. Take said individuals frames/.jpgs and "recompile" them back into .mpg, .mov, .wmv, etc.

My thought/theory is that if I can get each frame into an individual image, then optimize the HECK out of the image without affecting its on-screen appearance/quality, the resulting video files should theoretically be smaller once they are reassembled.  And, if that works similar to optimization techniques applied to individual .jpgs/.pngs, it could theoretically cut the size of said video files by anywhere from 20-60+ percent.

How would folks like to have movies or TV shows download in half the time, and/or stream while consuming half the bandwidth?  :-)  I think it can be done!  But only if I can figure out a solid, easy method for deconstructing and reconstructing said video files.

If anyone has any advice or recommendations, I would be grateful.  I'll be giving a workshop on image optimization techniques to a higher ed association (University and College Designers Association) this Fall, and would love to work video optimization into my session if I can.  I also still have my Red Swingline stapler on my desk from a "Best of Track" award presenting on the topic at HighEdWeb several years ago too.  Couldn't present on video at the time...but I think that time has come.  IF someone can help me overcome that bit of a hurdle.

Thanks!
