Should be fairly simple to do in LiVES.

1) load in the video clip to be edited.
2) Deselect Edit -> decouple video from audio
3) select start of video to be deleted and delete it
4) select end of video to be deleted, delete it
5) load in static frame, copy and insert x times
6) select all frames and insert silence in selection
7) copy and then switch to original clip and insert before original clip
8) Encode results.

Optionally after step 4 you can fade in and fade out audio.
