"Converting" MP3 to Video


I'm trying to find a command line program that will allow me to make a video with an MP3 as it's soundtrack (essentially convert an MP3 to video) preferably MWV format.

The reason is that I want to be able to listen to my MP3 podcasts on my Creative Zen Vision M media player. Creative (for whatever reason) decided that their podcast functionality would only read video, so their software converts all of the MP3s to MWVs and then loads it onto the player. I could just transfer the MP3 podcasts with my music, but I want to keep my music separated from my podcasts (Creative keeps them in two separate directories). Once I find a program to do this, I plan on writing a script to automate the process.

I'd appreciate any ideas about this!
