KDE VLC Snapper

KDE VLC Snapper is a small PyKDE4 based program to perform automated screencapping of DVD chapters or movie files. It is based on the VLC Python bindings.

Requirements

  • Python (2.6 and 2.7 should work reliably)
  • PyKDE4
  • VLC 1.1.x
  • dvdread and lsdvd (used for DVD chapter screencapping)
  • numpy (optional)

Installation

Untar the archive, and run:

python setup.py install

as root. Supply the --prefix option if you want to install to a specific prefix (default /usr/local).

Usage

Simply select your media file or DVD chapter, set the number of required screencaps and the destination directory and click on Capture.

Known issues

  • Some media files make the program crash (hard to debug)
