Does anyone know a method of how I can take a print screen of a playing video so I get a single captured image? If I was to port the image into paint the image would be what I saw rather than a Black Screen if I have turned the video off or a animated screen as if the player is running through MSPaint.

are you talking about getting a screenshot or a shot of your desktop with the video image player and all?

Hmm, I've had that problem before, Media Player Classic doesn't seem to do it tho, you may want to try that.
