VideoLAN + screenshot (or otherwise)


[ Method ]
23 May 2003
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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
