Greetings Carl and Paul,

Thank you both for your advice. Paul, can you demonstrate how exactly
to use the loop video filter? I have tried:

ffmpeg -i FILE.jpg -i FILE.mp3 -vf loop=loop=1 FILE.mp4

The result is audio with a black screen rather than with an image. I
clearly have not understood the filter guide.

Thank you in advance,

Hwaen Ch'uqi
