There's a way to do it.
Some media players lik CyberLink Media Player have features like print screen.

You just need to click the button whenever you want to take snap shot of the video.
Depending on the media players, the snap shot may not be in JPG file but you can use image or media editor softwares to convert to JPG.

I hope this will solve your problem, let me know if you still have the problem.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I reviewed a simular question link suppies by sajuks in 2002. All the links were no longert useable and I see no way to do this in Microsoft movies maker. The other link given by sajuks would not download automatically and it gave me a "page not found" when I tried manually.

Where do I obtain Cyberlink Media Palyer?

The link for Cyberlink Media Player is http://www.gocyberlink.com/english/index.jsp
You won't be able to do with any movie maker because there's no way to convert between avi and jpg.

The only way is to get snap shot of the avi using media players.

Hi, you can take any frame shot of an AVI using VirtualDUB (www.virtualdub.org - freeware).

In vDUB:

Video > Copy Source Frame to Clipboard
then paste it to any image editor. If you want, paste into a Powerpoint Slide, right-click the image and you'll see the save to file option on the context menu.

Or: select a range of frames, and do:
Open the video file, click Home to set the start of the sequence. Move to second frame and press End.
File > Save Image Sequence > Type a prefix and select dir.
