The PrintScreen method may have worked for you in the past, but it's 
not a function which was ever intended by the programmers. I could be 
wrong about this, but I don't think there's any function in Windows 
Media Player or Real Player for screen captures. You need a media 
player that will take these snapshots.

However, a quick Google-search revealed that some people have had 
success with the PrintScreen method after turning off Video 
Acceleration in WMP's Preferences.
