Autocapping in KMPlayer  
KMPlayer plays DVD's as well as audio files on you computer, you can set it to autocap, which will let you screencap a whole movie or video just by hitting a button, directions are under the cut.

Sendspace: hxxp://www.sendspace.com/file/0ru3x1 OR Megaupload: hxxp://www.megaupload.com/?d=EY214W3E
(Change "xx" to "tt")

1. Ok, the first thing you do after you have completely loaded the setup file, and it is completely on your computer is to open it up

2. Next, right click in the center of the player, a menu should popup, put your mouse over "capture" then "advanced capture"

3. A box will appear like the one above, here is what everything means divided up by color:

RED: This is where your caps will be saved, you can click the picture of the folder to save them to a different folder

GREEN: This is the prefix the name of your caps, for example, I was capping "sisterhood of the traveling pants" so the name of the caps will be "Sisterhood" followed by 4 digit numbers, ex: "Sisterhood5679"

BLACK: This is the format the caps will be saved in, Bitmap is the fastest, after I will just convert them all to .pngs using batch conversion in paint shop pro

ORANGE: It just shows you how many caps have been captured in the time the movie was playing, and how many frames the movie went through. This will all appear after you hit the "start" button.

BLUE: This setting is for how long the movie will be capped. I set mine to "continuously" so that it just caps the whole movie, you can set it to cap a certain number of caps, or for a certain amount of seconds

PURPLE: this setting is for what size the caps will be saved in, I set mine to "original size" which is just the size the movie is played in, you can stretch the media player if you want them a certain size, then click the "orinal size" button. If you want to type in a certain size do it below

YELLOW: This setting is for how many times the player will cap for you, mine is set so that it caps 20 times in one minute, which I highly reccomend, if you click "all frame" you will get literally, thousands of caps, I don't reccomend selecting all frame.

Once you have all that set up hit the "start" button and let it cap! The only other thing you need to do is hit "stop" if you want to stop it at a certain spot. If you need anymore help let me know =].

I've been using KM for about a year and love it, couldn't imagine my life without it.

I know! it's so amazing, and easy too =].

I just downloaded one of the links, and I had the program all fired up. But I can't cap because when I press start, this message pops up: "Impossible to work at SuperSpeed mode, or there is no KMP transform filter."

Any suggestions as to where the problem may lie? I tried changing it to HighSpeed mode, but the same message pops up. I fear it lies within the KMP transform filter, but I haven't got the slightest idea what to do about that.

I have the exact same problem, but absolutely no idea how to fix it at all. =(

can i downoload videos from youtube and watch it with KM player ?
heart_secret: Miley @ GMAheart_secret on August 30th, 2007 12:30 am (UTC)
Yup! use clippnabber to download the video and then just open it up with KMPlayer, the file (of the downloaded youtube video) will be in a weird format but if you open the file through KMPlayer it will play =].

Hi, thanks for the easy-to-follow instructions! I have a question about the cap size. The default's 720x480 for a dvd I want to cap, but I'd like to get higher resolution ones, if possible. Should I just put in numbers manually for the "capture size" boxes? Or is there a way to get them to capture full screen?
heart_secretheart_secret on January 3rd, 2008 11:41 pm (UTC)
Hmm, good question, I would try the first thing you said, just try putting in numbers and then try the full screen mode.
warpedmindedwarpedminded on February 13th, 2008 10:43 pm (UTC)
I can't find the advanced capture. I got it from downloads.com. I don't know where it is. It isn't where you show it.
heart_secretheart_secret on February 14th, 2008 05:14 am (UTC)
hmm, that's weird, try downloading the version I uploaded, maybe the one you got is a different one. That's weird though.

You can d/l it here: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Video/Video-Players/KMPlayer.shtml

The screenshots in this post are outdated so Advanced Capture is now named Frame: Extract

the part thats "ORANGE" is blank in mine when i open & do that? is that ok?!
heart_secretheart_secret on October 10th, 2008 02:05 am (UTC)
Yea, that's fine, It'll be blank until you start the movie =]
Emma Anderssonemsen on October 16th, 2008 02:50 pm (UTC)
I had so much problem with this in the beginning. I got the same error that vampirereverie had but I got it to work now. A solution is to open the video that you are going to capture and then hit pause. Then right click and chose capture>advanced capture... then chose the settings and then you just play the video :D

No I just have to learn how to convert these Bitmap files into PNG's with Photoshop. I will find a way, I think lol. Thanks by the way for telling me about this program. I had so much problem with the new version of VLC which I used before. So thanks!
Rachaelchasingthrills on October 20th, 2008 10:04 pm (UTC)
I downloaded the program from the links in your post (megaupload) but the program hasn't installed in english - it's in some strange symbol language... how can I fix that :S
Mycah: Roswell (Hot Kiss)pinksavannah on December 10th, 2008 04:53 am (UTC)
I got the same problem the first time. I just redownloaded it and it installed and let me select english. If it still happens try finding it from another site.
