Capture Images from DVD, AVI, RMVB, MP4, DAT & Other Video File Formats

Posted in Multimedia Tools


How to capture images from a video? Sometimes we find interesting scenes from a video that we want to capture to save them as images. Unfortunately, finding an application that has the ability to capture still images from videos isn’t easy. I did find a free program a long time ago but the total change on its latest version has made it much less useful now.

I used GOM Player as my default video player and, luckliy, it has a capture feature that lets you take screenshot of video scenes simply by using a shortcut key. There are some options that you can use to handle how the capture should be done. What’s more, the burst capture option enables you to capture sequential images in any interval of your choice.

You can start capturing still images from the video you’re playing by pressing Ctrl+E if you want to stick to the default setting, but if you want to change it to your own way then press F7 to display the “Control Panel”. Next, hit the “Advanced Capture” button. You can adjust a few things here like the folder destination for saving the pictures, the image format that you want to use and the quality of the JPEG image. The “Burst Capture” lets you capture up to 999 images in sequence.

GOM Player supports a large number of video formats, but to play some formats like Real Media files you will have to download and install a codec. I recommend you to use K-Lite Mega Codec. With the help of this codec, you can capture pictures from lots of video formats.

How to capture single image with GOM Player:

1. Download and install GOM Player.
2. Launch GOM Player and play the video.
3. Press F7 to specify the folder where you want the images are saved into.
3. Press Ctrl+E to capture the image. You can pause the play if necessary.

How to capture sequential images:

4. Specify how many images you want to grab.
5. Specify the interval between the captures.
6. Hit the “Burst Capture” button to start grabbing the pictures.

GOM Player is a free program and it works with Windows 98SE, Me, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista and Windows 7. GOM Player is a free program and it works with Windows. The version used in this article is GOM Player 2.1.21.4846.
