I tried pausing the DVD and pressing Print Screen but that didn't work. Can anyone help me out?

I'm interested to know how to do this too, with freeware. I've not been successful so far, but I also haven't spent a lot of time on it. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Are you talking about on a PC or a Mac? On a Mac, use VLC and then Apple + Shift + 4 and click > drag to capture what you want.

on a PC. goto http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/guliverkli/mpc2kxp6482.zip?download and download this file. it is windows media player classic. it is the only thing i use to view offline media files. dvds, mpgs, everything. very compact and fast. when using it, just press pause, goto file...save image and you have your screenshot.

Thanks outpost (and Lynne too....sorry, still a PC man :) )...I am at work right now, but when I get home I will try that. Thanks for the help.

I use WinDVD (which is not free <wink wink>). Has a screen capture button built in.

I registered here just so I could say "Thank You!".
Was looking for exactly such a thing and a google search brought me to this post. This is an awesome solution...

So, thank you from a newbie stranger who was rather appreciative.
