    For some reason it doesnt work when the DVD program is open! Anyone know how to save an image from a DVD?

    I think you have to use a program other than the apple DVDplayer. Try it with VLC or mplayer.

    Apple doesnt want you capturing screenshots of DVDs. Whats to keep a person from capturing 1 million screenshots during a movie and converting them into an animated GIF to watch the whole movie?



    :eek:

    For copyright reasons...

    I use a program called Snap n' Drag and it bypasses this.

    Im not so sure DVDs will still be popular by the time you are done with taking all those screen shots in 2014.

    Or, you could just have Automator capture all those pictures...

    All those software suggestions are good. Sorry I can't be helpful. :eek:

    I also second "Capture Me"

    It works as adverstised, and it is free. Enough said. I have not tested in Tiger though...

    Download the capture widget and you'll be able to take a screen grab.
