If you are watching  a video  and you like particular images of that video in certain situations and don’t know how to grab them.We can extract images from all kinds of videos like AVI,MPEG,Live streaming Video and other video formats.

Saving Pictures from Videos playing in windows Media Player:

1.If you are watching video in Windows Media Player to save any image from video is just press Ctrl +I  will save the image in JPEG format .

2.There is another method using print screen ,normally if we use print screen when viewing WM Player nothing will come in paint editor.the reason is  due to overlay  feature in WM player.Disabling overlay feature will give way to capture images using print screen and pasting in Paint Editor.

To disable overlay feature in WM Player

Tools>Options >Performance>advanced and uncheck use overlays .click apply and ok.

Now use Print screen button or Alt +Print screen to paste the image and save in your desired JPEG,PNG ,GIF format.
