There are at least two frame capture options for MPlayer that can be activated during playback -- I've gotten "screenshots" from video in the past in this manner, using the option that grabs many frame captures over a short period of time so that I could pick from among several to get the best image. There may be other ways to do the same, or something similar. If I remember correctly, using the -vf option when you start MPlayer allows you to grab screenshots with the s (for single) or S (for constant frame capture) keyboard commands while it's running. I don't know what the GMPlayer interface offers for the same functionality -- never use the thing. Best o' luck. -- CCD CopyWrite Chad Perrin [ http://ccd.apotheon.org ] Dr. Ron Paul: "Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons."
