    How come when I press Print Screen while watching a movie, then paste + save it in Paint, it does not take the screen shot. Is there a program to take a screen shot while watching a movie?

    I know that with nvdvd (nvidia media player) you can click a button that takes a screenshot but im not sure of any programs that take screenshots of video.

    It is a copyright protection thing. Use a program such as VirtualDub, which is free, to look at each frame of a video file. With this you can take screenshots of whatever frame you want. Or you could upload the file into flash, and export it as a gif.

    Yeah, I know double posting, but... I found a program that can take screenshots for alot of video files. I found it while I was searching for a program to convert from rmvb to another file type, but the program I found allowed me to take a screenshot. The name of the program is EO Video, here is a guide for it: http://www.videohelp.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=212204

    BSPlayer > Press P

    edit: Then look in your BSPlayer directory (usually C:\Program Files\K-Lite Codec Pack\bsplayer)
