    You could try dipping it in liquid nitrogen.

    As much as I&#39;d like to make a smart-ass, lounge-type comment........I can&#39;t think of one just now so I guess I&#39;ll go against my nature for a change and post something useful.
    This is what I downloaded recently and it was the answer to all my video capture needs.

    Cheers.

    I&#39;m gonna resist the urge to call you lazy, monkfish. What you are trying to do can be done in many different ways, where should I start? The old fashioned, turn of video acceleration and print screen works fine. Open paint and press edit , paste. That should work. Or you could look in Virtual Dub. I haven&#39;t needed to try it yet but there is a "save image sequence" and also a "copy source/output frame to clipboard" a "frame" is what you are calling a "still" in case you are wondering.

    I have a video capture card and lazy thing that I am I use the software that came with it....Dazzle Movie Star. They have a USB version to, but I think I&#39;m getting better quality than the USB could provide.

    (New here, and just trying to be useful)

    u can&#39;t do a simple printscreen to capture video.

    there are many programs you can use. a really simple one is Zoom Player (Download Here )

    Just play the film using that, pause it and press Alt + F. you&#39;ll be able to choose the path for the file to be saved in the options section.

    it saves in .bmp format, but thats easy enough to convert to jpeg.

    Wisdom-soft ScreenHunter pro and plus also capture video effectively.
