SnagIt won't capture a Netflix image

    Hi drpeg;
    This is likely because the content is protected via HDCP; Windows 10 will have certain levels of security in it that prevents capturing/recording videos/images on services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, etc.

    Thank you, Robert R. I thought it might be something like that, but didn't understand why I could capture the images on my husband's Windows 10. I guess maybe because his is a few years old, and my brand-new one is more fussy about such things.

    WELL AND THATS JUST WHY LOTS OF PEOPLE HATE WINDOWS 10. I AM HAVING TROUBLE  JUST USING THIS PROGRAM  AND I WANT TO POST PICTURES TO FB, INSTAGRAM ETC  AND  THIS IS PROVING TO BE A REAL PAIN IN MY ASS.  JIM

    Why would Microsoft/Windows allow people to outright infringe on other's copyrights?

    Netflix literally pays billions to create custom content. I have no issues with preventing people from copying "licensed" content.

    Sorry, Residentx, but taking screenshots for personal use is harmless (or are you telling me you've never photocopied anything out of a book?). Recording screencasts is a different matter, and I have no problem with Netflix preventing that. But as it turns out, in their zeal to prevent the latter, screenshots are a casualty, at least in Windows 10. Turns out that if one absolutely wants to take screenshots, there is a complicated workaround, involving setting up a Virtual Machine. https://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/take-a-screenshot-in-netflix/?fbclid=IwAR3qcqVWhtoTgA3xTP...

    There's plenty of images free on the internet. Wake up...stop stealing other's people stuff.

    Residentx, you're being ridiculous. Do you go on YouTube to all the fan vids and rant at them? To all the Pininterest sites and rant at the people who've posted images from shows? Oh, hey, you could even go on all the actors' Instagram sites and Twitter feeds and rant at them, since they post images from the shows.  And all *I* was talking about was capturing one measly image for my own pleasure, not sharing it with anyone. You don't know what you're talking about, anyway. From Wikipedia on screenshots:  Regardless of copyright, screenshots may still be legally used under the principle of fair use in the U.S. or fair dealing and similar laws in other countries. Guess what, Residentx? Viewing the image myself is "fair use." Go spread your holiday cheer elsewhere, troll. I've just unfollowed this thread, so go ahead and reply all you want. I won't read it.
    P.S. I notice you didn't vehemently deny ever, ever photocopying something from a book for your own use. Same principle--and it's perfectly legal.

    I understand that to copy 12 chapters or a  movie from Netflix has some justification .

    I need for teaching purpose 2 or less minutes to demonstrate for medical student a segment .

    This is possible only by using a camera....But not with Snagit . 

    Whoever    the old version of snag  is a great alternative.

    The old version allowed the recording - I wish I hadn't updated!!

    Disable the hardware acceleration in Google Chrome then Snagit will capture again.
