Can anyone tell me if it's possible to capture a single frame from a digital video clip, and if so, how do I go about it. I've just got an Epson DX8400 printer with card reader and LCD screen. Would it be possible to do it with this?
Thanks in advance.

has your media player software got a snapshot option?

vlc has its free

I don't think the printer is capable of doing that. You need a TV Card, something like click here

But it also might depend on the source of the video clip - i.e. camcorder or mobile phone?

Though *Raven*'s suggestion looks a better option.

Load the movie into virtualdub, locate the frame you want, use `copy source frame to clipboard` from the Video menu, paste into Microsoft Paint or any other image editor

click here

It doesn't handle .wmv or .mov files though

Brilliant! Thanks guys. I've downloaded VLC and Virtualdub, so between them I should be able to get my frames.

if you use VLC
To take snapshot,right click,its in the context menu
to set the location to save snapshot
settings->Preferences -> Video -> Video snapshot directory.
