Configurable sounds like a great idea to me too. I’d like to see a more defined break from the regular handlers if that’s possible. Also there is a Typo - PasteKey in the Field script is missing the “P” - it just states asteKey, I wondered what that was! :) Paul > On Jul 11, 2017, at 8:01

My guess is that it could be Digital Rights Management related? If you can screenshot a DRM protected video then, in principle, you could screenshot every frame and encode the frames back into a DRM-free version of the video. Do you know what the videos that had the problem were? On 7/11/2017
