i dunno if it works for you or not

software such as powerdvd lets you capture a screen shot when playing dvd/vcd/dat and other file formats, i havent tried playing avi or wma on it

or you can do a thing, get a software such as capex (capture express) which is my favourite, pause the frame and just capture the window, capex does a very good job

hope that works for you :)

Pause it, minimize it, restore, then take a screen cap.

If that doesn't work your other option is to download VirtualDub and export the individual frame(s) you want as images or an AVI without sound (which most GIF animator programs can open).

I agree. If you are ever going to be doing anything with videos, virtualDub is the way to go. Might as well use it now and learn it.
