Afternoon all,

I want to take a screenshot of what's playing in Media Player but the image copied into Paint is just that of the window and not the image from the video. I've been told that if I reduce my video performance settings in Windows I could do it but I can't remember where to do that.

Anybody know how to get round this?

Phil

To take screenshots of video in WMP you will need to turn off overlays. In WMP Options > Performance > Advanced. This should allow you to take screenshots of a video.

Exactly right. This will also remedy the same problem when viewing video using s-video or any other non-hardware accelerated video port.

Thanks all, I'll give that program a go and turn off overlays.
