VLC Snapshots

December 13, 2016

I was playing a video through VLC on Ubuntu and I wanted to take a snapshot frame from the video. It wasn't working.

I needed to:

  • Configure VLC to have a snapshots directory
  • Change the Hardware accelerated decoding option at Preferences->Input & Codecs to something other than VPDAU.
