Hi :-)
I have a movie in .ASF format and I'd like to publish it on my web page. I'd also like to have an image taken from the movie on which users would click to download the movie. The problem is, each time I try to print-screen the movie, I get a black image instead of the image from the movie..

What should I do ?
thanks!!

You wont be able to print screen an asf movie, it seems to have strong protection. But, you could use Ulead Media Studio Pro, convert the movie to mpg and the use an application like Paint Shop Pro to capture the image while the movie is playing.

It might not always work, since mpg also has some sort of protection, but it is easier to overcome.. Start a screen capture session with Paint Shop, hit your hot-key (F11) and then immediatly press the Print-screen key.

hope this helps
