I have the cccp and it works almost flawlessly.
One of the quirks which kind of annoys me is that when I try and take a snapshot of a part with subtitles in it, and I want to include the subtitles, it will take the snapshot without the subtitles and jump to a slightly earlier or later bit.
Any way around this? Does anyone else had this problem?
This is with MPC by the way. Zoomplayer doesn't take snapshots to my knowledge.
No. Are you using hide subtitles to turn off the double sub thing? If so you need to turn it back on.
Hmm, where's the option for that?
Subtitles aren't turned off or anything.
What I'm trying to do right now is take a snapshot of the beginning of Kaiba 2 where it says "What are memories? Souls? Spirits?"
Haali Media Splitter
forgot my pic
What about it? It's an icon on my taskbar at the moment because I have a mkv open, but I don't see how it pertains to the topic.
I can take snapshots of other parts of Kaiba 2 with subtitles, just not the opening line for some reason. What's going on?
You cheater you used the hardsubed one.
What I want is that same image except in 1280x720.
bump for unresolved problem
I'm sure this has been addressed on their wiki
Its softsub, just use VLC or printscreen.
It happens to me too. It is possible to catch the subs in the shot by aiming a little earlier or later, but it's very much trial and error. Wish they'd fix that (along with framestep-back, while they're at it).
I dunno I never had a problem taking screens in MPC. I never tried to take one at the very beginning though.
fuck around in your mpc options i dunno
The solution was to use Haali's instead of system default.
>Using Haali's renderer (or another): This change will let you take screenshots of the video exactly as it appears on your screen. Good for when you want softsubs.
>>ffdshow video decoder configuration - "Grab" menu
>>Pause on the frame you want to capture.
>>Doubleclick the black 'FF' icon in the system tray.
>>Scroll down to the 'output' tab and check the box "High quality YV12 to RGB conversion"
>>Open the 'grab' page.
>>Fill in the values with your preferences (in particular, the image format and quality).
>>Press 'grab now' and once you unpause the video it will write that frame out to the location you specify.
>>(If you want to grab a range of frames, you can also use the controls there. Good for making animated gifs.)
>Haali's Renderer method:
pause -> print screen?
Mm, I just read that too. It does seem to be more accurate/precise, but it also uses more CPU while playing. (Plus you still can't framestep back... grr...)
Set DirectShow Filter to VMR 9 (renderless)
This should stop the frame-skipping and always safe the subs displayed.
just tried switching to another renderer and it seems to work
nope, never had any problems with screencapping.
Just pause, print screen, paste on paint. You can replace the pause with "gureato taimingu".
Print Screen doesn't work if the video is playing in an overlay. In Media Player Classic you have to switch from Overlay Mixer or Default to something else, as described by others. In Windows Media Player you have to go into the options and turn down the Hardware Acceleration slider.
FYI, I'm trying various things, and it seems like VMR7 Renderless uses more CPU than VMR7 Windowed. And even though MPC says you need Renderless to load subtitles, that's not true because:
1. Usually subtitles are inside the mkv file, and MPC detects them fine either way.
2. Separate subtitle files are auto-loaded by DirectVobSub anyway, so even if MPC doesn't detect them, it still displays them, and you can switch between subs using the DirectVobSub tray icon.
I LIKE KMPLAYER <3
This method are works too.
Nah, I like my method better.
