Hi Cayi,

look here for know how to Convert RMVB(Real Media Variable Bitrate) to AVI/MPEG/WAV with Eo Video
it's a great tutorial

so after, whenyou have your avi file it's more easy to convert it to jpg or gif or any other file format
look here for avi to picture converters:

good luck,

can't it be done directly  when it is being played using media player classic. as I saw a "capture" subheading but grayed out  under the view menu.

i think is better when you do it with a converter, cause when you save it directly from your player i think you lost picture quality

quality loss will be minimal as the picture is quite large and I will just use a thumbnail. so how do I save it from media player classic or other player that can do it.

ok, if you want just a thumbnail, so you can use this soft for print the screen easily :

it's a really great soft

or you can save your picture with media player classic :
open your movie, go to File > Save Image...
and save your pic ;)

good luck

fine, I'll go with that,  but I want to know one last thing: what is the "capture" in media player classic  for?

No idea.

But I will tell you that you were looking at the wrong feature to accomplish that. Media Player Classic does support saving snapshots.

You have to go to File > Save Image

From there on you can save the image. Just use pause when saving images. The picture quality is fine, by the way.
