cd picture extraction

Hope everyone has a good Christmas and just as good or better new year. My son's girlfriend has a cd vob (movie) made of her dad. She wanted to know if you can make a print of an object, such as her dad from it. The cd looks like a slideshow, but it's in the vob format and she wants a jpg type photo. I told her I didn't think you could do it without converting the files and who knows what else. Was I right to tell her that? If you can do it, how! Thanks Murman

Many DVD/media players have a screen capture feature

I'd use that. We know that the videos are some 480p at best so a screen capture will do just fine.

I used a movie and tried to capture a scene from it. It was powerdvd. Anyway it used a bmp and opened in paint, but when I want to print it wasn't anything but a black picture. The dvd I used was copy protected though. Don't know why it didn't print a picture

Makes sense to me... As to BMP vs others, it's a GREAT CHOICE they made there. This way the person can select the compression to JPEG or other later. Hint? -> IRFANVIEW
