ALT-PrntScrn is an easy way to do it, you have to crop it out of the player's window or crop the title bar out. Otherwise you'd need video editing software. L

Well, the fastest and a free way would be to play the movie in fullscreen, and pause it where you want the still and use a screenshot tool. That will work because I've done it myself. Hope I helped!

yes, but the only program i could find was quicktime, and its fullscreen view has an annoying little bar i can't remove...(or atleast figure out how to hide it)

Quicktime (mov format) pro can output stills from a video. Not sure if the basic version can.
