IrfanView will break down AVI's.

Just stick a .com on that name.

Quicktime for .mov files

In reply to: extracting still images from digital video

I assume you want to extract an image from a movie, and produce a still picture.

How you do that will depend upon what type of movie file your camera generates.

My camera creates a .mov file (that is a movie name with a .mov extender - e.g."

I use the Quicktime program (free from Apple for PC) to play my .mov files.

Here is how it is done with Quicktime:

Start Quicktime
Click File and navigate to a .mov file on your computer. And load the movie.
Start the movie and when you get to the place where you want to capture a single photo, click Stop.

On the Quicktime menu, click Edit, click Copy.

Now start the Windows program called Paint.
On Paint's menu, click Edit, click Paste.

There is your picture in Paint.
Now click File, click Save As
Set the "Save In" window to the location you want to put the photo.
Set the "File Name" to an appropriate name
Set the "Save As Type" to .jpg
Click "Save"

You can use VirtualDub 1.4+ This is free software which you can download from anywhere. Just Drag and Drop, and click the "Save Image Sequence" from the File menu, type in the prefix of the filename, (e.g. picture), pick the BMP format, and choose in the directory you want to save to. It might take a little bit of space on your hard drive so make sure you have room Happy
