I noticed that when I right-click a video (that is, an HTML5 <video> tag), the context menu has an option to take a snapshot of the current frame.

However it's only giving me the option of saving it as a .jpg. Is it possible to save it in a lossless format like PNG instead?

when i read your question it wasn't edited/updated. why exactly would u want to do this? what is the problem with jpg? or even downloading the jpg and converting it to png. – Sickest Sep 19 '13 at 17:41
Sickest: your comments don't help either. His question is clear and right to the point. – Robert Sep 19 '13 at 18:01
