How do I make a screenshot from a video?
Before you take a screenshot with a video, you need toMake sure that your video player supports this function. The first method is to take screenshots with the help of the player itself. The second way is to use a special program for taking screenshots - screenshots. Now we will describe both these methods using the example of specific programs.
The standard Windows Media Player is notprovides such an opportunity, so we'll take as examples three of the most popular video players for PCs and look at their example, how to make a screenshot of the video.
VLC Media Player
Launch the desired video file in one of two ways: either open the program itself, and then drag the video into it, or right-click on the video file and select "Open with" - "VLC Media Player" in the menu. After you find the right moment on the video by moving the scroll thumbwheel, click on the pause. Now we find in the top line of the menu "Video" and select "Snapshot". The screenshot will be available in the "My Documents" folder if you did not install otherwise. To select the desired folder to save the screenshots, go through the path: "Tools" - "Settings" - "Video", find the section "Snapshots", in the "Catalog" click on "Browse" and choose the path to save the pictures with video. Here you can choose in which format the screenshots will be saved - in*png or*jpg.
Media Player Classic
Here, the actions will be the same as inthe previous case, until the moment you pause. After that, select the "File" option and click "Save Image". Next, the program offers you to choose a folder where to save the screenshot. Choose and save. If problems persist, then go to the next path in the player menu: View - Options - Playback - Output and select VMR7 Windowed, which is then confirmed by clicking on "Apply" and "OK" - now everything should turn out.
This is a pretty simple program for viewingvideo, which is also very easy to take a screenshot. To do this, simply press "Alt + F" at the same time. To define the folder where the pictures will be saved, you must select "Settings" - "Switch to Advanced Mode" - "System" - "Pathes, Folders and Files", enter or select the name of the desired folder in the top line ("Frame capture ( screenshot) save path ") and click" OK ".
Screenshot with the help of the program
There is one more answer to the question of how to makeA screenshot with a video, this is a special program. Consider, perhaps, the best program for these purposes: Fraps. First, download the Fraps program from the manufacturer's website: Fraps, then install and run it. In the menu that appears, click on the "Change" button and select the folder where our screenshots will be saved. Then in the box below you can specify the key that you want to assign to take screenshots (the default is F10), as well as the format of the outgoing file. Now you can watch any video in full-screen mode on any player and at the right time (of course, with "Fraps" enabled) just press F10 - and the screen shot will immediately appear in the desired folder. Of course, with the help of Fraps you can also take pictures of anything - games, websites, programs, texts in electronic form, in short, everything that appears on the screen of your monitor. Also, Fraps allows you to shoot video and computer games, but this is already a topic of a separate article.
