    Im on my 2nd phase of converting the family video's.

    I need to screen capture the title screen that comes up when a Sony DVD opens via the OSX DVD Player.

    The Sony mini DVD's seem to have one big video file separated into separate clips by chapters. I just have to make a clip of the 1st screen so I can label the files.

    OSX won't let you capture the DVD screen, and grabbing screen shot would be easier than writing them all out.

    Is there any way to grab a clip of that main dvd menu screen that shows all the clips?

    You cant do a CMD/Shift/4 to get it into screen capture mode and drag the select tool across what you want to capture? I don't think I found anywhere that doesn't work. You get a jpeg image on your desktop.

    You can't do a screenshot of a dvd when using Apple's DVD Player. It's all to do with DRM. You can't even do it with home made dvds.

    However, you can if you play the dvd with VLC.

    VLC worked!

    Thank You, never thought of using VLC to play a DVD.

    The program seems to do everything :)
