DVD Capture

2.5
16 May 2004

Take screenshots of DVD scenes.

Overview

DVD Capture is a helper application for the Apple DVD Player. It enables the user to take screen captures of the DVD Player Viewer in window and full screen mode. The captures can be saved to a file or placed on the clipboard.

What's new in DVD Capture

Version 2.5 adds improved file handling, DVD Player controls, improved settings retention and conversion to JPEG and cropping capability. It enables the user to take screen captures of the DVD Player Viewer in full screen mode in three different sizes. The captures can be saved to a file or placed on the clipboard. An AppleScript is provided for the DVD Player script menu that launches DVD Capture. Select "File" or "Clipboard" to assign a location for the capture. Mac OS 10.2 or higher required. May not work on all hardware configurations that are not G4-G5 Towers.

The step command works well, but it badly needs a step back command as well. I tried to capture a frame in which a photographer's flash went off and it took me 20 minutes. If one uses the step command to go one frame too many there is not way to go back. I also found that when moving from the step command to the play, sometimes the play only worked in jerky forward jumps. I had to completely stop the disc and then hit play to restore normal function.

It ended up working for me if I started up the app by itself, with DVD Player already running. If I tried the included script then I got a hang. I also got a few flawed caps (including one of just my desktop) before I got one that worked. Using a PB G4/12"/1.5GHz/1.25GB/10.4.2. Really I can't believe that Apple crippled the standard screencap utils to not work with DVDs.

Tried it out and works just fine. I'm using dual 1.42 ghz G4 running 10.3.9 After the captures happens, you have to wait a couple of seconds for DVDCapture to ask how big the file you want, then if you want a JPG version and what you want to do with the PDF version.

Total crap! Well, I'm using a dual 1.42Ghz G4 with Mac OS 10.3.9, which, of course, means I'm using DVD Player 4.0 -- so why am I getting black screenshots with DVD Capture 2.5? Just what is wrong with my configuration here? Nothing. What's wrong with DVD Capture 2.5? Everything since I'm not running Tiger. Now how about a DVD screen capture app. that works in Panther? Can anybody out there help all of us Panther folks?

Only captures a black screen, totally useless and does not work at all. Don't waste your time with this junk.

Nice upgrade---you pause the DVD to the exact frame, then DVDC grows the window up to full-screen (if it isn't already set to that) and puts the resulting screenshot into the clipboard. No problems at all. (G5 dual 2; Tiger 10.4.2)

B&W G3/300 with Panther 10.3.9 I've tried about every screen capture app under the sun but nothing seems to work, even DVD Capture. I don't know why the heck I keep getting black screens. I've waited so long to be able to get a screen grab from a dvd but I think right now it might be hopeless. Any ideas from anyone??

I use DVD capture 2.3 on G4 double 887 MHZ and it really work fine except the rewind button is forward and forward rewind. It work better than version 2.5. I am saving to File rather than Clipboard and no sounds. I get full screen capture.
