Plus, you provided really few information to make us in the position to help you in a satisfaction way :?

Have you fully read his post and the whole Q&A sections related to capturing problems:

Default key is [P], but - if you so wish - you can redefine through right-click > Options > Preferences > Key definitions & WinLIRC (note seperate settings are possible for Windowed mode and for Full screen mode).
If you did not define any specific location (through right-click > Options > Preferences > General ...... the options re saving of screens are shown in the "south east" quarter) screen images will be saved in BSPlayer's installation folder (default name and format: bscap??.jpg)
Not working?
Experiment with different rendering/overlay modes
(rightclick >) Options > Preferences > Video > Video rendering
with a different setting of "Convert captured images in software" under
(rightclick >) Options > Preferences > General ("south east" quarter of the window)
(Depends also on your graphics card (and its settings and drivers)!)
Frame by frame?
Pause movie and use right (and left) arrow keys to step through the movie
(Depends also on the possibilities of the decoder/filter used!)
Other possibility?
Well, there still is the possibility offered by Windows: [Alt]/[Print screen]
followed by "paste" in a graphics package.
(Its working also depends on graphics card/overlay settings.)
So, follow those suggestions and if you need furter help provide us more info on what have you tried.

Have you defined a different shortcut to the capture action in BSplayer preferences?
Have you set a destination directory for your captured shots? Have your account the rights to write to that directory? Have you changed the default commands in preferences window (for example the name format "bscap%A3")?
What rendering mode are you using? Have you tried to change rendering mode? And the options to convert the color space (for example YV12 or YUY2 format)?
Have you tried to capture the screen by using ALT+PRTSCR and pasting it in Paint (if this doesn't work change rendering mode or open another video instance before you start the video you want to capture)?

As you can see there are a ton of info you didn't provided and which are all listed in BSPeter's "little" ( :lol: ) post.

Try them all and if you still don't get screencaps to work, post here again and tell us what went wrong..

If, instead, you succeed in this operation, please, write here how you managed to make it work so that if other users get problems like you, will have some instructions to follow to fix that issue ;)

Good luck :)
The above didn't work at all.
