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.

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.

A wee bit quirky but it still does it's thing as it claims. Free and 68 KB. It's all i need.

(I'm on a G4 tower running under 10.3.8)

Robarm had trouble on 09 Jun 2004
When I try to run DVD Capture 2.5 and error message comes up saying Where is Image Events.app? and list of installed apps, which doesn't include Image Events. Then another message appears There was an error running the script - 1712 AppleEvent timed out.
Any suggestions to cure this gratefully received here or via rob@newdirectionsuk.co.uk

You can download the application Image Events from Mac Update and then it should work. Also, I think there's a problem with the script, so open the DVD Capture application from the applications folder instead of from the DVD Player script menu.

I had the same issue - DVD Capture was asking for Image Events.app - so I downloaded Image Events from this site, stuck it in my applications folder, and introduced it to DVD Capture when the time came.

Now it works - although it won't convert to jpegs, only .pdf files. But I can copy the images from .pdf into a photo editing application and save as a jpeg, so it's fine with me!
