I know for a Mac, QuickTime 4 Pro enables you to export movie frames as
pictures(albeit in PICT format) I've done that for a MPEG I have, created an
action that lightens, then saves as a JPEG, the resulting file. Dunno much about
the Media Player(as I'm on a Mac) but screen captures don't work. THe only way I
was able to get captures was by exporting the movie from QuickTime Player as a
Movie to picture<shrug>
