This is not possible.

Since in 99.99% of the cases we'll be decompressing and recompressing the video there will be quality loss. There is also a long discussion about how to pick what color that non-existant pixel should be when we change the frame size.

So no, there is no perfect solution today for this unless you have DV content and are shrinking in perfect multiples where we can use 2x reduction and output to DV. That's the only zero error method.
