Get a program called "virtual dub". Load the file into it and move it to the desired spot in the file. Print screen, cut and paste, and blow it up in something good like photoshop or PSP if you have them.

Or, if you're using Windows Media Player to play movie files, simply hit Ctrl+I at any time to make a screenshot.

get the right codecs

those are 2 different codecs which should solve it.

if your trying to take pics in media player, make sure you first go to tools>options>performance and set video acceleration to none.
