    GOM player in advanced burst capture mode--up to 999 frame captures at whatever interval you set. If used be sure to set capture file type to bitmap, not jpeg. If your system is a little underpowered then pausing before capturing may help but otherwise its probably artifacts and blurs in the video (which is probably only about 30 frames per second which if you think about it is a slow shutter speed for a still photo camera so anything moving is going to blur) causing many poor captures and there isn't much you can do about that.

    u can use Adobe premiere pro for capturing still images from the videos, other softwares are Ulead Video Studio, Media studio Pro which are available at the Ulead Website " www.Ulead.com". check whether it is working,
    Note : " if u capture still from a Video it will be blurry, it depends upon the resolution u have captures (for ex DV, VCD etc.) in order to get more image clarity capture the video file in DV format and check.
