    Why doesn't the traditional screen shot system work for DVDs?

    Okay, I was watching FF7: Advent Children (not making fun of the other topic, seriously) and I decided that Yuffie is smoking hot, and also, that those converse like knee highs of hers are bitchin, so I figured I'd take a screen shot of it. Now, I know the usual prnt scrn method doesn't work, but I do know that ctrl + I will capture images. BUT! Ctrl + I doesn't work with the DVD.

    What I'm wondering is, why is this, and also, is there some other way (besides downloading VLC player, or having to download anything) that I can capture images?

    Oh, keep in mind that I have the new windows media URGE.

    Use VLC or Windows Media Player Classic or use Fraps...all need to be downloaded.

    No I read your message, except you lack the understanding that you can't do anything right now so you have to go to the internet get some stuff and use it. I know doing stuff on your own is hard but thats life.

    Re: Why don't the traditional screen shot system work for DVDs?

    Just out of curiosity, are you trying the ‘print screen’ and ‘Ctr I’ while in full-screen mode? This might not work because some DVD players have input override functions that prevent common button grouping from working because they might falter playback, or be part of their particular keymap, or even for bizarre legal reasons. (but it really depends on your particular DVD software).

    Have you tried ‘print screen’ while the DVD program is not the focus program?

    Oh, and by the way, I almost shot coffee out of my left nostril when I read your first reply. I’m a connoisseur of sarcasm, and that was simply flawless.

    I did lack the knowledge that there was nothing I could have done. However, I did express my knowing of the VLC player and SUCH. In response to my message, you should have typed 'No, there is nothing else you can do to capture that image without downloading someting off the internet'

    That plus something extra explaining why the traditional ctrl + I doesn't work would also have been acceptable.
