    I've never done it, so I never looked it up. But I did find 2 possibilities:

    How to Capture and Extract Still Images from Video

    How to Print Still Photos From Video


    The second one says print. If you use Mac you can print to pdf and that will save it. But it also mentions a different program that will let you save it. Plus it tells how to do a screen grab that you could use to create a new image in something else. (HINT: If on Windows don't use Paint unless you don't care how it turns out. I promise it will turn out awful.)

    I've never done it other than through a screen capture. So I don't guarantee either. But I hope one or both will do the trick.

    That sounds like a player problem. You can watch the video? Or you get that error when you try to?

    When I want a pic of something on a video I am watching....I pause it on the spot, and hit "print screen", or hit "print screen" when it comes to the spot I want, then go to paint, paste, and crop and save it to my photos...


    Is that what you are talking about???

    I'm having partial success with GOM player. I can save current frame in a different folder but it's not really a snapshot because when you click on it it starts playing.

    Yes. It's the same idea.
    When I skype with my family I can push the snapshot button (little camera) and take a still. I wanted to do the same with my small clips of home video.
