Use mplayer to extract the frames from the video.

mplayer -vo jpeg -frames 1 -ss  ...

Then use imagemagik convert to join the frames (-append, -geometry, -tile and -background options)

convert img1.jpg img2.jpg img3.jpg +append result.jpg

Is there any direct solution??
I think your problem is too specific to find something ready to use... that do exactly what you want. The tools I gave you are basilar, like hammer and screwdriver... You can do all that you want.
