all i can suggest is that you try pasting it into a different program

You'll have to get a special screen capture program to grab pictures from video. Look around and download.com.

I wanted to get a picture of Jack Black in his Tenacious D - Tribute video so I went fullscreen with it (WMP7) and used PrntScrn button. Then I pasted it into a .bmp and it worked!

It doesn't work if it's normal sized though. Wonder why o.o

You sure it worked? Did you actually save the picture or try editing it to see if it actually copied over? It sometimes will just show the actual video.

Not sure, probably need to do Alt-Printscreen to print the active window, rather than the screen itself. (Had to do it recently to document a piece of software)

I have all the stuff convered to .gif format, but I still need a program to put em all together.
Anyone know of a good way to do this?

I think there are a few online ones that will do it... try download.com. I cant give you urls for online ones cause I am not really a fan of aminated avatars(read: lazy bastard).

i had your problem. The guys are right. Windows Media Player cant replay back pics. You need a different program
