I've been trying for a few days to play video with VLC, both the ones that come with it and libraries build by other people and I've yet to get it totally working the way I wanted. Since vlc2.0 came out I cannot get it to play video at all now.
I'm trying to add video to my file browsing program that will support more obscure web file types like flv and mp4. And I've wanted to be able to grab screenshots from them. When the VLC did work, the screenshot method did not work at all, it didn't save any files to my hard drive anywhere and I would rather it just return an image instead of saving one. The windows media player control doesn't do those file types and in my experience getting screenshots from it has been impossible.
What would you guys suggest I do to accomplish this? There doesn't seem to be much recent info on the VLC control, especially since the new version just came out.

Welcome to the MSDN forum.
Based on your description, I think you can firstly check if the screenshot images were saved to some special directory (eg: My Pictures directory). On the other hand, if you just want to capture image from the video, you can also try this which can capture video. If I misunderstood you, please let me know.
Have a nice day.
