So you wonder how everyone makes screenshots of those DivX, AVI or MPEG files they download huh?
Well making screenshots is actually quite easy...
All you need is a good simple program and Virtual Dub is our savior. Virtual dub is small, and light resource using program and one of the simplest programs to make screenshots with.
Simply download Virtual Dub here. Install and then run the program.
You'll see a blank screen with a menu at the top. Select 'File' then open "Open Video File". Select the location of the video file you want to make screenshots for. When you select it... you should have something like this
You can now either play the video clip normally, fast foward, rewind, select individual frames and look around until you find that screenshot you want.
Then use "CTRL + 1" to take the screenshot. It will be put in your clipboard and all you need to do is open a paint program and "CTRL + V" to paste it into your paintprogram. Very Easy, Very Fast.
If you use CCCP, you can also use the "Save Image" option of Media Player Classic (included in the CCCP). You can set up a key to do that by going to "View>Options>Keys". There you can set up whichever key you want to capture screenshots, the images will be saved to a folder of your choosing as a .jpg or .bmp file without the need of further editing.
You can get Media Player Classic and the CCCP here
While running a video in Windows Media Player, simply use the "Print Screen" option of your computer to capture a frame. It will save everything on your screen onto your clipboard, so you'll have to paste and edit it with some image software in order to get the only the screenshot. Please note that you have to disable video acceleration on Windows Media Player for this to work. To disable video acceleration on Windows Media Player go to Tools>Options>Performance and put the Video acceleration Marker on "None". The Print Screen command will not work with Media Player Classic on its default settings, and it isn't likely to with other media players as well.
