    I saw a awesome video and I want to capture one of its stills and save as jpeg or bmp so that i can set it as wallpaper, any free software available that can help me.

    Have you tried AutoScreenRecorder? This allows you to save streaming video as a movie, then you should be able to take a screen grab from a single frame.

    Play the file through VLC Player which has an inbuilt snapshot facility .

    you don't really specify if you want to capture the video or just a screen shot.... Windows Movie Maker also has the ability to capture screenshots from the vids you import.
