    Capturing Stills From a DVD

    I have a DVD recording of me skydiving and I want to capture still shots (jpg or gif) from the DVD.

    How the hell do I do this. I tried for hours last night and as soon as I closed the video footage the image dissappeared.

    Is there specific software that I can use to do this?
