Adding video to .mp3

I need some help please. I'd like to upload a .mp3-file on YouTube but I need to add a video to it first. How do I do that on a mac? Doesn't matter whatever the video is actually, could be only a picture, I'm just interested in uploading the .mp3-file.

Thank in advance!

MP3 is not a video file. It's an audio file.

Yeah I know, that's why I'd like to add a video to the .mp3-file so that I can upload it on YouTube. But I don't know what to use and how to do.

You can't add video to an .mp3 file. It doesn't support video.

I see, so if I'd like to upload an .mp3-file on YouTube, how would I do? I mean, when using windows you can use Windows Movie Maker to add pictures to an .mp3-file and making a video out of it and then uploading it. But how do you do when using mac? There has to be some way doing this? You must be able to upload a .mp3-file on YouTube if you are a mac user?

You could use iMovie for this task.

No no no...
Windows Movie Maker doesn't let you add pictures to an .mp3 file. As GGJstudios said, .mp3 is an audio-only filetype so that's just not possible. What you want to do is use your .mp3 as the audio track for a (new) video file.

That's what Windows Movie Maker does, and as John Doe 57 suggested iMovie can do this as well.
