KDE VLC Snapper is a small PyKDE4 based program to perform automated screencapping of DVD chapters or movie files. It is based on the VLC Python bindings.
I created this program to quickly get a number of screenshots from a movie stream so I could post them to my blog.
- Python (2.6 and 2.7 should work reliably)
- VLC 1.1.x
- dvdread and lsdvd (used for DVD chapter screencapping)
- numpy (optional)
The currently available version is 0.1.
git clone git://github.com/cswegger/kde-vlc-snapper.git
Untar the archive, and run:
python setup.py install
as root. Supply the --prefix option if you want to install to a specific prefix (default /usr/local).
Simply select your media file or DVD chapter, set the number of required screencaps and the destination directory and click on Capture.
- Some media files make the program crash (hard to debug)
