My understanding is that POV outputs individual frame images but no video files.
How to convert those to video? Is there a simple piece of software that accepts
frame images, fps and an audio track as input and produces video files as
output?

Many people use ffmpeg

When I ran windows, I used some other pieces of software.
VideoMach is super easy.

for sound, I used Audacity

It's been a while since I've done one, so I can't really recall the details on
adding in the sound - but if _I_ could do it...    ;)

I second ffmpeg!

For a list of frames of the form image0001.png, for example:

ffmpeg -i image%04d.png -c:v libx264 -preset medium -crf 20 output.mp4

should produce a decent H.264 video. There are a huge range of options,
including fps and adding audio, but I'm not an expert. Best to see the
documentation at https://ffmpeg.org/documentation.html, or google for guides
that suit your needs!
