It appears that video on Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Netflix have some kind of antiscreen capture tech to keep frames of video from being screencaptured.
Not talking about trying to capture video but just screen shots.
Used Snipping Tool and just tried Snip & Sketch.
Any good options to get around whatever protection forced on us? Memes are needed for posting to this great social media world.
Are you playing these shows on a computer?
If so, I presume the print-screen button doesn't succeed?
That's not going to work. The print screen short cut uses the Snipping Tool program.
Which is weird because I can't seem to replicate the CTRL + PrintScreen button = screen capture since getting it prior to posting this.
Can the videos be played in VLC media player (which has an image capture function)?
Are they played in a web browser?
Of course it's in a web browser. Can you run a streaming service through VLC media player? I'm sure they have stronger DRM to protect their video streams from being used there than with the screen capture protection.
Of course it's in a web browser.
This add-on for Firefox might work:
I presume that other browsers have similar add-ons, but I'm not familiar with them.
Can you run a streaming service through VLC media player?
Streaming it directly, I've no idea. If you manage to save the video then probably.
pause video and take photo with phone.
quality will be crappy, but better than nothing...
Now for the weird....
Snipping Tool works on screenshotting Hulu at work. But not at home when I wrote this thread.
I wonder if there are DRM's/streaming protections depending on the program being streamed.
