    Any decent way to take a screenshot of a DVD in VideoLAN? There appears to be no internal function to do that, and taking a screenshot with Windows (via PrtScn) leaves a black box where the image should be... I had WinDVD before, which took nice screenshots, but lucky me I lose the disc (and serial along with), so that is out. I've also considered downloading the demos of PowerDVD and WinDVD, but they only allow 5 minutes of viewing at a time, or some other non-fun business... any suggestions welcome
