Hi, I find this chrome video screenshot extension very useful: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/video-screenshotter/ppkojackhibeogijphhfnamhemklmial . It allows me to screenshot a video from practically any website. But I am trying to get rid of chrome and stick to firefox. Is there any firefox addon similar to this? I've looked everywhere.

Actually

#1

I want to screenshot the video and nothing but the video. With the chrome extension I can pause a youtube (or any other website.) video at the part I want to screenshot, and capture it without getting the youtube control buttons at the bottom. But with Firefox screenshots I can't do that. Also the chrome extension does it much quicker.

#2

I tried that addon it does not work for me. I think it wants me to pay $1 a month.

Hi, no idea, it should be free as far as I know as there is not suppose to be anything for sale in there. If it does want you buy please use the URL to the site and click on the Abuse Link.

Sorry. That is all Firefox has but there are other Extensions. 21 pages : https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/search/?platform=windows&q=screenshot

Hi, ya...possibly as was lost in your reply.

Have given you the places to look. There are options though the may not be what you want. As to that Volunteer Support can not make changes to Firefox nor make a recommendation over something else, even if had one. I know there is tons of stuff out there though.


Maybe something here : is a reputable place I post and download from : https://fileforum.betanews.com/browse/Video-Software

Actually I wanted to capture an image from a video. Not record a video from a video.

This is a variation of the bookmarklet that works as a toggle, so you can run it another time to make to player control appear again.

You can create a new bookmark on the Bookmarks Toolbar and paste the JavaScript code in its Location field. Give the bookmarklet a suitable name.


javascript:(function(){var d=document,e,sS='.ytp-gradient-bottom,.ytp-gradient-top,.ytp-chrome-top,.ytp-chrome-bottom{display:none;}',nS;if(e=d.querySelector('style[id=\'style_YTP\']')){e.parentNode.removeChild(e)}else{nS=d.createElement('style');nS.id='style_YTP';nS.setAttribute('type','text/css');nS.textContent=unescape(sS);d.querySelector('head,body').appendChild(nS)}})();
