Power DVD is really buggy on my computer (examples of problems include it using stupid amounts of memory - 300K+ if it's got itself in a knot - and it runs several background processes even if it is closed) and so I really need to find an alternative.
My problem is I need a program that has a solid screen capture feature and no other application I've tried can match PowerDVD at this as far as I can see.
For the capturing;
I need to be able to save images directly to hard drive (So you can go through a movie hitting 'c' or other screen capture key and it saves the shots automatically allowing you to continue watching.
I need it to save as a .jpg at a resonable filesize.
I need to be able to be able to capture at the current size of the video window (so I can capture at full screen and then resize within a graphics program).
I guess that's not too much to ask for but I've struggled to find any other program that can do all of this.
