I watch most of my blu-rays on my PC but in powerdvd theres no option to capture a screen of the blu-ray menu and extras (I mean Powerdvd has an option to capture screens but its not abled when it comes to blu-ray menus), something I've always wanted to do. I've downloaded several programs to watch my blurays on my computer but none seem to have this option abled when it comes to blu-rays, though its quite easy to do with a normal DVD
is there a way to take a good screencapture of the extras of a blu-ray? which software would require?
thanks in advance for any help

Sort of basic, but if you just need a static screen grab, PrtScn on your keyboard and open with MS Paint.
thanks, but I tried that, the first thing actually, it doesnt work
There is only one way that I know of to take a screenshot with PowerDVD while playing the original Blu-ray and that is to run a decrypter like DVDFab Passkey for Blu-ray or AnyDVD HD in the background while playing it.
Since it isn't licensed by the BDA, Leawo Blu-ray player might allow making screenshots, but I don't have it and can't guarantee that it will do what you want or even play your movie.Ignore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord, Snoopy329
thanks, so it seems its quite complicated. Since its quite easy to do it with DVDs and I thought the same rules would apply to blu-rays I was suprised to read its actually a different scenario
CDs had no copy protection, and manufacturers hated that, so they put CP on DVDs. But consumers didn't have too hard of a time getting around that so when BD came out, they doubled down on the CP. Even moreso with UHDBD (4k).
