Does anyone in lj-land know how to take automatic screen captures using VLC? I found a nice tutorial and thought I had it all figured out. I started screen capping a movie and it was all going really well, with screen captures being taken every few seconds. About half an hour into it, I left for work. I was all excited when I came home because I opened the folder and there were a huge number of .PNG files in there. Except...they were all 0 bytes! Now, at the time I left for work I had actual pictures. I could understand if an error occurred after I left, but why would it affect captures that had already been taken?

Also, if you know of any other program with the same functionality I would love to know because I apparently fail at VLC.

That sucks! It seems like too much work for me to rip the movie then try to cap it again only to have it not work. But maybe I'll try it sometime...

I guess I'll just cap things manually for now, though I tend to get antsy and do a half-assed job!
