    Default DVD Capture

    I write the occasional DVD review for my blog and like to put up the odd picture or two. I have now bought a lappie with DVD player, the plan being that I take still pictures directly from the DVD rather than being reliant on whatever I can find on the net. What I don't know is what software will allow me to take such a still - I know I can just pause play and do a print screen, but surely there are other options? Without spending loads of $, of course - something I can download or buy cheaply off trademe. OS is Windows 2000 Pro.

    welcome to PressF1
    Some of the dvd player software such as PowerDVD and Nero Showtime allow you to capture an image. Have a look in the help file for the software you are using, it should tell you if it can be done.

    You could download The GIMP. It has a good screen capture tool.
    Why use a simple solution when a complicated one will suffice?

    Most (software) DVD players have a snapshot function that allows you to take a full-res, deinterlaced snapshot of the movie at its current playing location. If by some remote chance your player doesn't have this option, install VLC - that does.

    PowerDVD has a screen grab function. Works fine.
