How to take Media Player Classic Video Screenshots – In this article, you will be shown how to save one or multiple frame screenshots using the software.

Capturing video replay screenshots

There are a variety of reasons why you need to take one or more screenshots of a video-to post it online, to include it in a review, to memorize it-you name it.

If you have Windows 7 or 8, the best way to do it would be to use the built-in Snipping Feature, but that’s not the most powerful way.

The easiest way to do this is by far to use Media Player Classic-the software is cross-platform, and you can not only take a single frame screenshot, but you can also produce one picture containing several frames taken randomly during the video-I’m sure you’ve already seen these kinds of video screenshots.

How to take Media Player Classic video screenshots

Media Player: A word usually used to describe computer software for playing back multimedia files is a media player.

Although certain media players may play both audio and video, others concentrate on one or the other form of media only. Media players also display icons recognized by physical devices, such as CD players and tape recorders.

Media Player Classic (which, apart from the old school gui, has little in common with Windows Media Player or Microsoft) is a very feature-rich application, but it is very simple to use for screenshots.

Here is how, in a few easy steps, you can do it:
Step 1: The player can be downloaded and installed from the official website,, or the official page of SourceForge.

It is quick to install by default and it has everything you need. Open any video file using a player once installed (it should be set as the default video player).
Open a video file in the Classic Media Player

Step 2.

It is extremely easy to take screenshots from here. If you want to take a single frame screenshot, just pause the video at the desired moment, click the “File” menu in the upper left-hand corner, then select “Save Image…” and select where to save the screenshot.

The resolution would be the same as the original resolution of the film.

Click Save Picture and File

Step 3: If you want to take a series of video screenshots, all bundled in one image, select “File” and choose “Save Thumbnails…” instead.
Multiple frames saved – pick save thumbnails

Step 4: A few additional choices can be selected in the image save window, such as the number of rows and columns to bear screenshots, the format of the image and the width of the final image.

I just have to say that since you fit multiple screenshots into one image and videos are fairly large resolution these days, the width of the image can be quite large. It is up to you to decide.

That’s it, it will save your video screenshots and you can upload or post them anywhere now!
