- Hi Jim,
Sometimes I have encountered problem with AMCap especially trying to
use RGB24 capture format (but without any error message), so I have
stopped to use it.
Now I use VirtualDub 1.6.11 for both capture and I420 -> RGB24
It is freeware, powerfull and reliable, you can download it from
You can easily extract single frame to clipboard or to image file.
To start the capture go to the menu File / Capture AVI...
Then (in capture mode)
To configure the capture format go to the menu Video / Capture pin...
Normally I apply 5 fps, 640 x 480, I420
To configure the webcam go to the menu Video / Capture filter...
P for preview (live), H for histogram (live)
Remember to disable Audio capture from menu Audio.

I try to select Still capture in
AMCap: "CreateGrabber:CoCreateinstance failed, hr=80040154". I'm
just wondering if anyone else has encountered this and know how to
get around it, or if you might point me to another program that
captures .avi files while still allowing still captures.
