Hello, This may be a little off topic, but its for beginners... :) I'd like to know how to capture the screen (print screen) while movie is playing? Like, when I want to capture one scene and have a picture of it? Because it obviously cannot be done by pressing PrintScreen and pasting it into graphics program. Please help! Thanks, Rex

Indeed, it won't work because it's done in an overlay. I believe there are specific screencapture programs that will work.

In Windows Media Player, under Performace (I think) you can choose to either disable use of overlays, or also simply disabling hardware acceleration works.

As I say, there are programs to let you... FRAPS (more commonly used for recording video) should work. www.fraps.com (It's a bit bloated but hey)
