What is the best(and preferably free) way to capture a still shot from a dvd?

The player itself? should have this option bookmark or somthing like that then save it as a file.

capturing images.

This feature is only available if video mixing rendering is turned on in the Player and the DVD decoder and display hardware support video mixing rendering. To turn on video mixing rendering, on the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Performance tab. Click Advanced, and then, in the DVD Video area, select the Use video mixing renderer check box. Some display hardware only supports video mixing rendering if the screen resolution is set to 800 x 600 pixels and the color quality is set to 16-bit. For more information about changing screen resolution and color quality, see Windows Help.

You can also capture images in PowerDVD.

Hope the above helps
