Is this a quick/simple way to convert a bunch of JPG stills into some sort of video file so it can be played back in VLC? If the convertion can be done using VLC, that would be preferred.

how about using PowerPoint or Windows Movie Maker ? – Raptor Jun 17 '13 at 11:30

You can use a "stopmotion" maker: here's an overview of them, and one to download: CellSoft Take5 1.30

Even you can also use Picasa 3 which has a feature that does exactly this - basically, it saves the slideshow into a saved video file - works nicely.

I use mencoder to assemble a series of jpeg frames into an avi, which can then be easily played back in VLC

mencoder mf://*.jpg -mf fps=24 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:mbd=1:vbitrate=12800:autoaspect=1 -o video.avi

you may want to play with the lavcopts but that should get you going...

ps. I tried to do this with VLC itself but just couldn't figure it out

just Open the VLC Player > Media>Convert/save or press ctrl+R >add your images > drop down option to play . Done ! :)
