Suppose I play a video file via VLC from the Windows command line. Are there command line parameters which cause VLC to stop at the last frame and just display it as a fixed image instead of closing the video completely? Is there any other Windows video player which can do this starting from command line?


I have tried but i achieved upto the point of pausing a vedio and getting a snapshot of it whithout closing the vedio and then resuming it. Here is what i have done:

c:\prog~1\vlc\VLC>vlc -I rc -vvv "address of vedio file to open"

This will open up rc interface and also the vedio in direct 3d desktop mode. At RC interface window type help to get list of commands. I have written pause to pause the vedio and snapshot to get the snap of the particular frame.
