The file is a .bmp, but I can convert it to another file format if need be.
What I don't know how to do is convert it to 8 seconds of video. Can be AVI, MPG, makes no difference. I can convert those too. What I don't know how to do is convert from a still picture to video.
Is there such a freeware program out there?

The only way I know how to do it is with TMPGEnc Plus and a bitmap image. I think TMPGEnc Plus is free for MPEG1 encodes. The photo will need to be the same ratio as a television (4x3 - 720x480 etc etc) for it to look right....or the image will need to be placed on a background of that size/ratio.
Created a blank 8 second .wav file with CDWave - created the bpm image in Microsoft Image Composer - encoded with TMPGEnc Plus(MPEG2):
That'll open in just about any encoder although you may have to crop/addborders/resize if for MPEG/DVD and it's to be encoded as 4:3 or 16:9.
1 - Open your photo file. avidemux deals with an image as a single frame.
2 - Copy [Ctrl-C] once then paste [Ctrl-v] for 30 times(your video will run at 30 frames per second)
3- Copy then paste for 10 times to get a 10 seconds video
Make sure that:
1 - Video = copy
2 - Audio = copy
3 - Format = avi
Save video [Ctrl-S) and give it a full name such as myvideo.avi.
