Using VLC's frame-by-frame mode (hotkey "e") to manually generate snapshots works fine for a certain amount of time, and then causes VLC to hang completely.

This is a known issue for VLC. Is there another program I can use to take snapshots of individual frames, or should I continue killing vlc.exe every 2 minutes?


Have you tried media player classic which comes with the k lite codec pack? It's pretty easy to do "step" then "grab" functions with it.

  • Yes, it is pretty easy, and it has the advantage of not freezing. – Nick May 27 '11 at 16:56
