Corel Capture

All I get when I try to grab a frame from Media Player is the black background.
Can anybody who is familiar with the programme tell me where I am going wrong.

Everybody was sure that Somebody would answer it. Anybody could have answered it, but Nobody did. Somebody got angry because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

I have Corel Capture and Windows Media player. The only films I have are Windows help tutorials which capture just fine, but I have seen this problem before. Can you post a link to the movie that is causing the problem?

When the "Capture" toolbar appears are you selecting "Current Window"?

I've just done a trial capture to verify and no problems. Got the full WMP window, saved as a cpt file, which opened in Photopaint OK.

Sorry I can't be of more help without details of your method of capture.

It is with all movies and I have never been able to do it, with any system or configuration. This has been several years. Only now have I decided to do something about it.

toxin I have just tried this and indeed am selecting current window. It is saving to clipboard and when I open Photopaint I select New from Clipboard I get the WMP screen as if nothing is playing.
I can't help feeling I am missing something obvious because nobody else seems to have ythis problem.

I have just tried capturing a screen in RealPlayer and it got it first time.
In WMP it just picks up the black screen, the titles and even the cursor, which I placed in the middle of the playing area.

Surely somebody must know about this???

Like you, have used Corel Capture for a long time, but very infrequently.

Have only ever tried -after pausing- the movie, and probably while using Quicktime.

Always worked for me, though I can't remember when I last tried it.
