Create Multiple Screenshots Of A Video Using SceneGrabber

SceneGrabber.NET is a windows application that helps you to easily create screenshots of your desired video. As the name goes, it is based on the Microsoft.NET framework. The application’s main objective is to create multiple screenshots of a video.

Where Can It Be Useful?

  • If you are uploading any movie to the torrents, then you could use this application to create multiple screenshots and upload it.
  • Personal videos can be converted into photos.

By default, this application is set to take 30 screenshots of the whole video. However, this can be changed based on the user’s desire. If the number of screenshots is set for 30, then it divides the total lenth of the video into 30 parts and grabs a screenshot of each.

This has two options. Either you can capture one single screenshot or you can capture multiple screenshots of a video. After capturing the screenshots, you can sort out the photos you want and remove others.

The captured screenshots are combined to a single page and are processed as a single image. The width, height and resolution of the screenshots are all user-defined.

Techie-Buzz Verdict

You can convert a video into multiple screenshots with a single click. As I said earlier in the post, this is useful when you want to post screenshots of a movie, or even convert videos into photos.

On the other hand, instead of processing the screenshots as a single image, processing them as invidual pictures would have been an better and expected feature.

Postpone Restart After Windows Update

Most of the times any Windows update you apply to your computer requires you to restart your PC. I definitely get quite fed up with the frequent nags to restart the PC. Previously I had written a tip on how to disable restarts after Windows update.

Auto Login and Lock Windows

Whenever you start or restart your PC, you have to key in your username and password for the actual startup process to commence. So, if you restarted your PC and went to get a cup of coffee, you will still have to wait a good 30-40 seconds before you can start working on.

Auto Login and Lock is a handy software which could save you some time here. It will automatically login to Windows on startup and then lock Windows so that a password is still required to login. However, since the startup process is already underway, you can just login and start working when you return with your cup of coffee.

It is a pretty useful  . We definitely recommend it to users.

This is a alternative for all those individual apps put together. I am sure it takes no more than about 10% of the space that numerous other applications that you use take.

Registry Watcher can come in pretty handy to developers and application debuggers, who want to monitor the registry for changes.

You will need to provide which key Registry Watcher should be tracking, this will allow users to quickly debug just single applications for problems. Overall we don’t see much use of it for anything else than development or debugging purposes.
