    can you take a snapshot of a video playing on your screen without using any type of program, like maybe using the keyboard or something, I tried the Print Screen SysRq but it only takes a snapshot of like the windows media player interface and the video part is just black,

    so can you do this or should I just get a program to do it????

    yeah I'm a dumbass:(

    hook me up guys:)

    thanx in advcance

    well I don't know why your Print Screen isn't working for you.

    Try downloading a DIVX 2.0 player and using it to read the .AVI file.
    THEN do a Print Screen. Maybe it was just the Windows Media Player...

    Did you even READ what THEdude posted?!

  13. There's a technical reason for that, which I am vague and unclear of, but I do believe that it has to do with video being played back from somewhere other than where the rest of the stuff in your screen is being presented from. I'm guessing this is the video/graphics card or the automatic transmission coupling or the anti lock brakes or maybe even the rutabaga. But you can't do it without software. Beer,
