DVD Capture 2.5

Will allow you to easily take screenshots of DVD scenes
If you are using the Apple DVD Player app to view your DVDs you cannot take screenshots using the typical keyboard combinations: the images will be blank. DVD Capture is a simple application designed to help you capture DVD screenshots in no time.

DVD Capture is no longer under development and is running only on architectures that support PowerPC applications (Snow Leopard is included). Additionally, it will not work on all configurations: you just have to try it to see if it will be able to capture DVD screenshots on your Mac.

DVD Capture is intended to be a helper application for the DVD Player application and even includes an AppleScript that allows you to launch it from the DVD Player Script menu. The script is included in the DVD Capture archive and you must place it in the “~/Library/Application Support/DVD Player Scripts/“ folder. The next time you launch the DVD Player app you will be able to see the “Launch DVD Capture” entry in the DVD Player Scripts menu.

The DVD Capture main window is very simple and intuitive: on the top you can view the DVD managing options while on the bottom you can make the capture adjustments. DVD Capture allows you to play, stop, pause, fast rewind, fast forward or mute the DVD. Additionally, you can resize the DVD Player window.

DVD Capture allows you to save the capture to file or to the clipboard, offers you the possibility to disable the sound and includes support for capture delay. Once you made all the necessary adjustments, simply press the “Capture” button.

DVD Capture is a very easy to use application designed to help you capture DVD screenshots, bypassing the Apple restrictions. DVD Capture might not work properly on certain architectures but, when it does, can be exactly what you need.
