any advise on how to capture still images from home video so they can be printed / saved to dvd..

I have done this often. I have a normal VHS VCR attached to my PC via a Audio/Video Processor connected through my Graphics card, and on my PC I have WinTV from Hauppage. Having both of these makes capturing stills from VHS easy.

sorry its already on my pc ie mpg file.. i wondered if there is an easy piece of freeware that plays video clips and allows you to capture stills so i can utilise them. !!!!

Not free but with a 30day free trial ... click here

Also if you Google for 'Free program play video capture stills' I am sure you will get more options.

Yes you can by using VLC click here

I ran a thread on exactly this subject some time ago and though VLC was ok,the quality was pretty poor.
The deciding factor will be the quality of the video. click here

Hi skidzy - have a look at the program in my link, I think you will agree it looks pretty good! Though I have not used it myself, as I have other ways of doing the same thing.
