Just drag and drop any movie file onto the MovieSnapshot interface, select the frame to grab and click the save button. The program supports all installed DirectShow video and audio codecs."<br /><br /><img src="http://www.digitalmediathoughts.com/images/moviesnapshot.jpg" /> <br /><br />Got a video file that you want to export a specific frame from as a JPEG image? Most video editing apps will allow you to do this, but if you don't already have a good tool, this freeware app will do the trick. This program is also a single EXE file, which is great!

Nice! There's a ton of times when I want a screenshot of movies but you can't get it sine WMP is lame like that.

Thanks, that's nice!

Up until now I've been mostly successful making wmv screen shots from a program called QuickVCD Player 3. I can pause, do a printscreen and edit it in Photoshop. I think this will be considerably easier though.

How is it working out for you guys? The frame by frame advance buttons don't work for me, which makes this kind of useless because without it it's much more error-prone finding the right moment to click the save button.

I usually don't need to be very precise when I'm capturing a frame so I can toggle play/pause enough to find what I need. Hey, you know what would be really useful? If someone made one of these things that not only showed the movie but also showed like the previous and next 3 frames so you could pick one and choose save. Oh well, this is fine and it saves me a few steps...and it's FREE :)
