How to Create a Screenshot Using Media Player Classic

information   Information
This tutorial will show you how to create a screenshot using Media Player Classic.
Note   Note
If you don't have Media Player Classic in your pc, download the K-Lite Codec Pack and it will be installed.
Or if you want to download just Media Player Classic (HC) without codecs:
Media Player Classic and Media Player Classic Home Cinema

For this tutorial I'm using Media Player Classic Home Cinema v1.4.1.2834.




1. To start Media Player Classic click on button , type Media Player Classic in the search box, and press Enter. This will start MPC. After that you will see the main window on the program.

  • In File Name wrote the name that you want to be saved.
  • In Save as type select the extension of the thumbnail. (.png ; .jpg ; .bmp)
  • In Thumbnails also select what you want. (I select 4x4)
  • And in Image Width select the size (mine is 1024)
7. Wait for a while for video to be processed. And finally here is the result.

Nice find but for those of us that don't want to grab another Codec pack

Get Media Player Classic here

Free-Codecs.com :: Download Media Player Classic 6.4.9.1 : Media Player Classic is an enhanced version of Media Player 6.4

or (IMHO even better) Media Player Classic Home Cinema

Download Media Player Classic Home Cinema, Free Video Player Download

or (what I use) the latest daily BETAs of MPC-HC direct from "Mother Russia"

Media Player Classic Home Cinema (x86/x64) - XvidVideo.RU
