Q.  How can I use ffmpeg to convert a still into a 10 second video?

A.  But setting the framerate really low (.1) you can get a 10 second video.

ffmpeg -i still.png -r .1 video.mp4
Sadly this creates the 10 second video but it doesn't have the still image in it. But I'm still sharing this tip because it seems close to a solution.
