    Before, I could play a movie on my computer through the DVD player application and pause it and take a screen grab with the Grab application.
    But now Grab won't do it! It says I have to quit DVD player now!

    Apple must've gotten complaints from pointy headed lawyers and amended the problem during a software update.

    A thousand curses!!! Damn damn damn!

    I don't think that you ever could.

    Try playing the DVD in your computer.

    Download DVD Capture, or play your DVDs with VLC and use Command-Shift-4.

    Snapz Pro X works awesome and flawlessly for this, just draw the area around the DVD Player's "normal size" window and "action"--perfect capture ready for compression at whatever level you desire. Beware: this hogs drive space. Try a free trial, download from AmbrosiaSW.com. ;)
