    I was wondering if there is a way to grab stills from a DVD movie with my Mac.


    Thanks

    Get Snapz Pro, it can take screen shots of DVD player, do a search on version tracker for it.

    Also you could try a standard screenshot while playing the movie in VLC.

    so does Apple+Shift+3 (or 4) not work while playing a DVD?

    i've never tried.

    CMD+shift+3 (or 4) does not work with Apple's DVD Player application. Copyright issues and such. All you'll get is a black screen.

    the freeware app, DVD Capture (check versiontracker) works great.

    What is VLC ?

    I tried 'DVD Capture' and didn't work, just got black pic,
    (it said it may not work on mac older then G4).

    VLC is a multi codec video player. :)

    You name it, and it will play.

    Though as of recent builds it seems lacking.
