Wait, slow down. You want to do what what? Take video screenshots and use them as your desktop?

Do you mean still images from movie playing?

Just use the normal screen capture keys while having the movie on pause/playing on fullscreen

cmd+shift+3

Ah yes, that would make some sense. It's not the most clearly-worded post I've ever read, put it that way.

Unfortunately, johto's trick won't work in DVD Player. It'll be fine in QuickTime, though.

after collecting your screen grabs, put them all in a folder, and in system preferences under desktop you can select that folder and check the "change every x minutes" box.
