Simple Ways to Get a Screenshot from a YouTube Video

Using a Mobile Phone or Tablet

1. Open the YouTube app. YouTube has a red screen with a white ‘play’ triangle in the middle as its symbol.

  • If you don’t already have the YouTube app, you can get it for free from the Google Play Store or the App Store for iPhone and iPad.
  • Additionally, you can visit https://www.youtube.com/ in a web browser.
2. Search for a video to play. You can search for videos by name, channel, or user by tapping the magnifying glass icon in the upper-right corner and using the search bar. Additionally, you can search videos by clicking the bottom-of-the-screen tabs.
3. Tap the video you want to get a screenshot from. This plays the video in the YouTube app.
4. Tap the center of the video. This displays the playback controls in the center of the video.
5. Switch to full-screen mode. To move to full-screen mode, tap the square icon in the lower-right corner.

6. Tap pause to pause the video. To pause the video, tap the icon with two vertical lines in the center of the frame.

If you do not see the pause icon in the screen’s middle, tap the screen’s center again to bring up the playback controls.

7. Drag the red dot to move to the frame you want to capture. The red line at the bottom of the video replay window indicates the video’s length. The red dot indicates the current time stamp for the video. You can tap and drag the red dot in the bar left and right to navigate to the section of video you want to record.

  • You may need to tap the ‘play’ triangle to unpause the video and then pause it again to get to the exact frame you want to catch.
8. Tap the video to make the playback controls disappear. If the playback controls are visible on the screen, tap an empty region of the screen to make them vanish. This way, the video frame is the only thing visible on the projector.
