Yo!

 

For a brother from Forest Hills (68th Rd, during the 60s), you can stop the dvd (freeze), then do a Screen Capture like this:

 

hold down the 'alt' button and hit the 'PrtSc' button (up top, to the right of the F12 key). Then 'start/programs/accessories/paint', and hit 'edit/paste', and your screen capture should appear by magic. You can edit the picture via 'cropping', or use a photo editor to adjust it to your needs.

 

So there. Say hi to Austin St. for me! Used to be one of the best pizza parlors there - King George Pizza, near Continental Ave. Pardon my drool.

 

Peace,

Tim from Jersey via 108th St & 68th Rd.

Play. Just play.

You can get small screen-capture programs - I used them years ago. Try 'downloads.com' and look in Utilities fro 'screen capture'. You should get something there that either captures the whole screen or only the current window.

Make sure that you get a program that can take both software and hardware screen captures. Most computer DVDs use hardware to play back the image instead of software such as Win Media Player. I recomend Power DVD or Win DVD. Both will take excellent screen captures from DVDs.

You've got to make sure that those programs will do a hardware capture of the screen and not just software. If you try to do a screen capture while playing a DVD WITHOUT setting your screen capture program for hardware, all you're going to get is a blank screen shot or one of your desktop background. DVD-ROM drives use thier internal hardware to decoded and overlay the video from the DVD being played onto the screen. Just pushing the Print Screen key won't cut it. All it will capture is what Windows sees, NOT what your DVD-ROM is doing. I know PowerDVD and WinDVD both have a utility built into them that allows a hardware screen capture. I think that you can download them both with a free trial period.
