MediaPlayer Classic won't take snapshots

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Terry Pinnell, Mar 7, 2009.

  1. I'm using MediaPlayer Classic, version With all the MPEGs
    I've tried so far, when trying to capture a snapshot using File >
    Save Image... (Ctl+I) it fails with the obscure error message
    "GetCurrentImage failed, hr = 8000ffff". That's whether I'm specifying
    BMP or JPG, and whether the video clip is playing or paused.

    Anyone able to reproduce this please, or know whether it's a
    recognised issue?

    I get the same error message. It is a bug that will probably be fixed
    in a latter release. I beleive there is a beta version out not, you
    might try it.

  3. Thanks Bill. Last night I was pointed to the newer Media Player
    Classic Homecinema at
    and that works fine, snapshots included! I reckon I'll stop using the
    old version of MPC altogether now.
