How to Screen Capture With GOM


The GOM player is an advanced video playback program developed by Gretech Corporation. The GOM player inherently supports the playback of broken AVI video files, and comes with a host of other features, such as the ability to take screen captures from a video. There is a simple method of taking screen captures as well as an advanced method. The advanced method is primarily for taking multiple screen captures in a row.

Basic Screen Capture

  • Open the video you want to take a screen capture of using the GOM video player.

  • Click on "Edit" then "Video." Select "Copy Frame to Clipboard" to copy the current video frame to your clipboard. You can also push "Copy" and "C" simultaneously to copy the frame quickly.

  • Open the image program you want to use, such as Microsoft Paint. Click on "Edit" then select "Paste," or push "Ctrl" and "V" to paste the copied frame into the program.

  • Click on "File" then "Save As." Type a file name for the picture and choose the location you want to save it to. Click "Save."

Advanced Screen Capture

  • Open the video you want to take a screen capture of. Click on "Edit" then "Video." Select "Advanced Video Capture."

  • Edit the folder your screen capture will be saved to, if desired, by clicking "Change Directory" in the top menu box. Select the desired output folder.

  • Select the image output type, such as BMP or JPEG, and then set the quality level.

  • Select the "Burst to Capture" ratio. Select a number between "1" and "10." This is the number of simultaneous screen captures you want to take.

  • Set the burst interval time in seconds. This is only useful if you are taking multiple screen captures. Choose "5" to take the multiple screen captures five seconds apart. Choose another number in seconds to set it to a different interval.

  • Click on "Burst Capture" if you set the program to take multiple shots. Click on "Capture" if you are only taking one shot. Navigate to the chosen output folder when the screen captures are taken. You'll see the pictures inside.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can also take a screen capture when the video is playing by pushing "Ctrl" and "E" simultaneously. This automatically saves the screen capture into the "Captures" folder in the GOM file directory.
